Childhood revisited

A couple of days ago, I took Mike to Costco. They don't have Costco in England, so I thought I would treat him to a Canadian, OK, well AMERICAN, wholesale experience.

While we were there, I perused the book aisle, because Costco ALWAYS as great books. In the children's pile, I picked up a Spiderman doodle thingy for Threepeat because he IS Spiderman. Then, I noticed a couple of books out of the corner of my eye...they were Dr. Seuss books! I haven't seen them since I was a child!! I ended up buying all three..."Cat in a Hat", "Green Eggs and Ham" and "Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You?"

That night, Threepeat and I sat in the family room, him perched on my lap, warm in his jammies with his bottle of milk in hand, while I read him all three of those books. He was completely engrossed. His favourite was "Cat in a Hat". My favourite was "Green Eggs and Ham". I love the rhymes and the rudimentary illustrations. I was transported back to my childhood as I read, "I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them Sam I Am!" LOL! Threepeat was quite concerned for the safety of the fish in "Cat in a Hat", telling me many times that the cat was going to drop the fish.

It was wonderful to share books with my child that I read as a child.

Now...where can I find the "Dick and Jane" series? LOL! Pin It

Our library is filled with Dr. Seuss books. But with a blog titled "funny things are everywhere" that shouldn't be a surprise.

"From near to far, from here to there, funny things are everywhere" is from 'One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish'.

And you can get Dick and Jane books at Amazon.ca.
