I love the work of Dr. Seuss. Every one has such a great story to tell for all ages. A child can appreciate the rhymes, the fun illustration and reading about things like green eggs and ham. However as we grow, Dr. Seuss takes on a new meaning – especially for us creative minds!
The one I want to share today is: “I Can Read With My Eyes Shut.” Enjoy!
I can read in red. I can read in blue.
I can read in pickle color too.
I can read in bed, and in purple, and in brown.
I can read in a circle and upside down.
I can read with my left eye.
I can read with my right.
I can read Mississippi with my eyes shut tight.
There are so many things you can learn about, but
You’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut.
The more that you read, the more things you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.
If you read with your eyes shut, you’re likely to find
That the place where you’re going is far, far behind.
So that’s why I tell you to keep your eyes wide,
Keep them wide open … at least on one side!
