Can you imagine the joy of introducing hundreds of children who have never heard of them, to Dr. Seuss books? While teaching English camps in INDIA I have had that delightful experience. And in just a few days, I will again pull Dr. Seuss books from my bags, with corresponding character toys. The books are great for teaching ESL, with all the repeating and rhyming words. I LOVE TEACHING WITH THEM! Transported into the world of magical childhood, I am right there with the kids, entering into the fun and the fancy, the wonder and the imaginative play, which knows no cultural boundaries.
This is a photo of two of the many Dr. Seuss books going with me this trip. Doesn't it look like we are going to have fun? Want to come along?
I am always sad to say farewell to my INDIA friends. But I am learning from the wisdom of Dr. Seuss, who said, "Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened!"
