Me- "Hey, it's perfect that you've been wanting all these books because Saturday is Dr. Seuss' birthday."
Me- "He wrote all these books you've been reading, like Horton, and the birthday book, and this one."
Her- "OH!" (Color her impressed!)
Though I'm surprised she didn't ask if we were going to his party. If you say it's someone's birthday she thinks that means it's their birthday party and she automatically wants to know if she gets to go.
Anyway, I thought it might be fun to make a little reading game with a Seuss-ish flare for her since she's been enjoying his stuff so much.
(As you can see I used stuff from the Lorax movie too, 'cuz my kids love it). Because Rainy is just in the earliest stages of reading, I picked a simple CVC (consonant vowel consonant) word to go with each picture in hopes that she'd be able to sound them out easily and have fun, not struggle.
And there she is in action! I have really got to get a laminator to keep these babies in good shape! I mean Cuteness will wanna play the Seuss Game someday too, I'm sure. (I'll have to think of a cooler name.)
Happy Seussing everyone!
