30 Day Book Challenge: Day 11




Day #11: The Book That Made me Fall in Love with Reading


I remember it like it was yesterday. I read Green Eggs & Ham to my 1st grade class for show and tell. It was the first book I could read all by myself. I thought I was such hot shit. "Look at me classmates! I'm READING!" What a smug little teacher's pet I was. 

I'm pretty sure that was also the first time I saw the glazed look of non-interest when I got all bookish on people. Did I care? Nope. I was READING!

    2. Most kids in general do! That's why he's so great!

      At Universal Islands of Adventure in Orlando, in Seuss World, there is a great shop with a ton of his actual art and it's really cool! Very kid-like but also very adult-appreciative!
