Blogging 101 Alumni feature

dr suess.jpgHappy Friday!!!!!!!

I have decided to step up and become a much more active member Ā on our little community. So, to celebrate this I’m sharing myĀ favourite quotes in our new FRIDAY Feature – 3 quotes.

One of the most fun set of books to read aloud to children are the DrĀ Suess books. DrĀ Suess is actually the pen name for Author and illustratorĀ Theodor Seuss Geisel. His books have become some of the most popular children’s books of all time selling over 600 million copies which have been translated into more than 20 languages. He adopted the pen name Dr Suess during his time at Dartmouth college and the University of Oxford. He worked as an illustrator for many years and during WW2 he worked as an animator for the animation department of the United States of America government. After the war, he concentrated on his children’s books and has published over 60, many of which have become films, Tv series and even a broadway musical.

Three days, Three quotes – day 3

So I am taking up the three days, three quotes challenge as passed on by Meg fromĀ DrMegSorick, who write a great blog about writing and sharing her journey to self-publishing.

The idea is to post between 1-3 quotes a day for three days challenging a new person each day.

So here is day three. We are all constantly a role model and more so those of us who teach. I have children who mimic me and then one day turn around and it’s like a small version of me as they chastise their friend. A little scary!

This quote resonates with me for that reason, Never give up.

Only one quote today as this, I feel, stands alone.
