I love Dr. Suess! There is something about his timeless rhymes and illustrations that I will keep with me forever. His book, The Butter Battle came to mind with all of this talk of World War 2 and the Holocaust. The book is about two sides of people separated by a wall. (Much like the Berlin Wall.) One side likes their butter on top of the bread and the other on the bottom. Personally, I think we could all care less, right? But the point of the book was to address the circumstances of the Cold War. I know a lot of you are like, “Who cares Mady!” I don’t know… I guess what I’m trying to get at, is that it was pretty cool of Theodore Geisel to express his feelings about the war through rhyme and through his books. His books have reached out to many children and this one in particular touched the adults as well. So thank you Dr. Suess! Make sure to celebrate Dr. Suess Day or March 2nd even if you’re not a big fan of green eggs and ham!
