Dr. Seuss

The other day I decided to go to a thrift shop in Brooklyn and I stumbled upon this t-shirt shown in the image uploaded. I absolutely loved it! I mean who doesn't like Dr. Seuss! Although this shirt is about his book "Green Eggs and Ham", here's something interesting to think about with his other book "The Cat in the Hat." Read the story over and take note of the characters. Do you see them as just characters that help a story? Or rather was Dr. Seuss trying to use Psychologist Sigmund Freud's theory of personality? Which characters do you think exhibit the Id, the Ego, and the Superego...?"

Hi Adina -- I love reading your thoughts about Dr. Seuss books. I taught kindergarten and adored reading Dr. Seuss to them. In fact, I learned how to write poems copying his wonderful style! Do you know the book "Yertle the Turtle?" My daughters, now grown, LOVED it. It was such a favorite in our house. I've never analyzed their personalities but they were all about fun -- like my Wordeee book KIDFUN: 410 Easy Ideas for Play. Good luck and thank you! ...

Published in 1957, the cat in the hat is one of the best selling children’s books of all time. There’s always a deeper meaning beyond the surface reading of the book. I delight in reading every book by Dr. Seuss Over and over again either to a child or…just to myself!

“People talk about cancer freely; why is it so difficult to discuss the effects of depression, bipolar…, anxiety, or schizophrenic disorders?… Just because the illness may not be outwardly visible doesn’t mean the person suffering from it isn’t struggling.” ~Saoirse Kennedy ...Read More
