I am huge fan of Dr. Seuss, born Theodor Seuss Geisel on March 2, 1904. His whimsical rhymes and clever stories hold the same magic for my children as they did for me when I was a kid. I remember my first Dr. Seuss book, One Fish Two Fish, I loved reading it over and over again with delight as a child.
March 2nd also marks the day (in 2007) when I first shared Kidoinfo online with a circle of friends—wondering if they would find my collection of stories, ideas, and local events useful. To my delight the response was kinetic—Kidoinfo has become more than my stories but a collection of parents’ ideas and wisdom from around the state, making the most of Rhode Island with kids.
Thank you Dr. Seuss for inspiring me from an early age. My family will celebrate with treats, stories and silly verse!
The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go. – Dr. Seuss
