When I think back about learning to read, I remember the Cat in the Hat, Yertle the Turtle, Sam-I-Am, and many other magical characters and stories written by Dr. Seuss. As a first year teacher, teaching first grade, I was shocked to see the extreme shortage of Dr. Seuss books in my school's library. It saddens me that my students are missing out on many of these classic stories, but I am in a very poor school and the funding simply isn't there to order new books. My students are also from very poor socioeconomic backgrounds, and for many of them, school is the only place that they are exposed to books. I would love to have a collection of Dr. Seuss books for my classroom library, so that my students can enjoy reading and learning from them as they begin to read. It would also be nice to have multiple copies of some of the books, so that I could use them in small group reading lessons. The rhyming patterns, and simple phrases in many Dr. Seuss books make them perfect for emerging readers, and the engaging characters and pictures will really motivate my students to read. They would love to read these books during independent reading time each day. There are also many themes and lesson ideas that I could take from Dr. Seuss books, which would make math, social studies, and science lessons much more entertaining. I couldn't imagine growing up without Dr. Seuss books, and I know that my students would treasure these magical stories if they were given the opportunity to read them.
