Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Wednesday March 2, 2011

Dr. Seuss was born on this day 107 years ago. In his own words:

Today you are you! That is truer than true!

There is no one alive who is you-er than you!

Shout loud, I am lucky to be what I am!

Thank goodness I’m not just a clam or a ham

Or a dusty old jar of sour gooseberry jam!

I am what I am! That’s a great thing to be!

If I say so myself, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

-from Happy Birthday To You! (1959)
