My Kid Hates Seuss!

Monday, May 21, 2012
I am DEVASTATED!!! T hates Dr. Seuss books! We read There's a Wocket in My Pocket and he sat there as cold as stone. Nothing. No laugh. No smile. No "what is that?" Nothing. He ever so gently turned his head the other way as if to say, "Mom, what were you thinking?" Sigh.
I KNOW! I'll try another Seuss classic! The Foot Book! Who doesn't LoVe The Foot Book?!? I'll tell you who-T
The Foot Book (The Bright and Early Books for Beginning Beginners)
Oh my. What will I ever tell his kindergarten teacher? How will I break this news to my niece, A? What is a mother (and <cough> <cough> teacher) to do?

That mother thinks about her little guy and his love of the elephant! She pulls out Horton Hears a Who, stops talking in third person, and hopes for the best!
Horton Hears A Who!
It worked! He loves it! I had to ad lib about 90% of the story, but who cares??? His love for Seuss has been ignited. Of course, I know in a couple of years he will be so into Seuss that I will be hiding the books! 

Has your child turned down a book before? Which one?
