Z is for Zizzer-Zazzer-Zuzz…

… an homage to Dr. Seuss AND alphabet books.

I grew up with Green Eggs and Ham and The Cat in the Hat.  Oh, the Places You’ll Go! was read by my class president at my graduation from high school.  I fell in love with Dr. Seuss writings again in college when My Many Colored Days came out.  And, of course, parenting has helped me rediscover all anew the joys of Dr. Seuss.  My little boy told me yesterday that his favorite book is The Cat in the Hat… and was slightly distraught when I asked to borrow his copy of Dr. Seuss’s Alphabet book (to make sure I knew how to spell Zizzer-Zazzer-Zuzz!)

This one I discovered a few years ago.  I have yet to use it, but have decided it is perfect for starting off family counseling sessions… assuming I’m doing that again someday… (okay, maybe not, but sometimes it seems needed!)

Here are a few ABC children’s books we’ve enjoyed over the past few years!  If I did this post correctly, you can click on the book image to go the the Amazon page for more information if you are interested.

And I haven’t read this one, but think I might need to!

It’s been fun going through the alphabet with all of you!  See you on Monday for the recap!
