Hello all! Thank you for patiently bearing with my silence. Health issues and a very busy post-holiday work schedule disrupted the posting of Brain Popcorn, but we’re back to a weekly update schedule just in time to gear up for that spring that everybody is so desperate to reach.
(In fact, I’m just about ready to strap on some jetpack skates to see if I can get to spring any faster.)
(I love those skates. They have a conveniently and appropriately Seussian look to them, too. On Beyond Zebra, indeed!)
Today is also Dr. Seuss’s Birthday, celebrated here in the U.S. with Read Across America Day.
On March 2, the National Education Association calls for every child to be reading in the company of a caring adult.
In the spirit of Read Across America (Oh the places you’ll go!), I offer up an illustration from How to Be an Explorer of the World: Portable Life Museum, by Keri Smith. Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss, and thanks for the brain food!
