When it comes to authors that truly understood the needs of young writers you won’t find much better than Dr. Seuss himself. Dr. Seuss has inspired the imaginations of children for generations. When I worked at Universal Studios I watched how people reacted to the characters out of Dr. Seuss’ mind. How excited adults and children alike where to walk that threshold between the islands into Suess land with all of its bright bouncy-ness. These fun Dr. Seuss crafts and activities are inspired by this visionary and sure to spark your child’s imagination and I am willing to bet yours as well.
My Many Colored Days was written by Dr. Seuss but not published for quite some time because he desperately wanted just the right artist for the illustrations. When it comes down to it this is one of my favorite children’s books. It is great for helping children learn to understand emotions and their true complexity. This My Many Colored Days invitation to create is the perfect companion to the book.
I remember Are you my Mother from my childhood. Perhaps I had a bit more of a connection to it after spending most of my early years without my mother.
