I recently saw a bio of Dr. Seuss. He was a very popular writer and people looked forward to his articles and cartoons. He wrote during WWII. After the war he and his wife moved to California and he had a new publisher. He liked his writing and in the 1950’s the publisher felt that children even back then were not reading enough. He gave Dr. Seuss a challange. He wrote out two hundred fifty words and told him he had to incorporate every word in a children’s book. Thus, “The Cat in the Hat” was born. Dr. Seuss continued on after than with all the children’s books being extremely popular even to this day. There is a section in the La Jolla library in California that is named after him and has all of his children’s books. Reading is slowly becoming a lost art. The video games are taking over so that children can read but they are no longer expanding their minds with new vocabularly unless in school, new adventrues and ideas to fuel their imaginations. I love reading as do both of my children. I have read countless books to my grandchildren. It gives a parent or grandparent a special time and a bond with their child.  Most people are so busy they are grateful that their kids are occupied and not pestering them. I find that appauling. I still occasionaly read while I cook. Stirring a pan of homemade pasta sauce is far more interesting with a book in your hand. Long ago the Sunday newspaper was a family event. The parents read various sections while the kids read the comics.  All that is lost now.  That was a tradition my late husband and I had when we were first married.  He would go to the store while I made breakfast.  All in all a great way to spend a Sunday morning.
