Hello!! Hope this finds you and your family happy and HEALTHY!!!

 Did you know, "You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child?" -Dr. Seuss.  This is one of my favorite quotes from our hands down favorite children's author as voted on by my reading students year after year. Who is your favorite children's author and or quote from a favorite children's book?
