Dr. Seuss get's his day

First - some catch up - the accident last Friday in Wanaque on 287 actually involved 48 vehicles - more than 40 of them cars. The great news is that no one was seriously hurt and emergency personnel from Wanaque and the surrounding towns all responded like champs.

Second - get ready for Dr. Seuss day all across America. Dr. Seuss was born on March 2nd, 1904. In Wanaque's 2 elementary schools Dr. Seuss day is being celebrated on Friday in the Wanaque School and on Monday in the Haskell School. The librarians and the teachers have the schools decked out in Dr. Seuss story characters and drawings and the libraries are all set. Both schools look terrific. Different people will be reading to the children all day and both schools are starting reading contests. I was lucky enough to be asked to read to a class and am honored to do so. I am still deciding which story to read - so many of them are my favorites - from the classic graduation story "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" to "Horton Hears a Who!" and I just read a new one that was his last book - he never completed it so he got a little help at the end. The book is "Hooray for Diffendoofer Day!" and shows his uncompleted work and sketches as the second half of the book.

How can anyone not love a man with a love for Exclamation Points?
