Sneetches on beaches...
Well, I am here to tell you, in case you have never read this story, you really must...we are huge Dr. Seuss fans in our house...this story was written and illustrated by the one and only himself in 1961 and you just have to love the message, the whole idea is pretty hands down amazing...I will not give the lengthy full version (which is classic and must be read, it is not that lengthy at all really), but rather the end and what is to me, just one of the most signifcant lessons in life...well, just one which Dr. Seuss teaches us so eloquently...
Have a star bellied (or a wonderfully Plain-Bellied)weekend my friends!
The end of this wonderful story sums it up:
'But McBean was quite wrong. I'm quite happy to say
That the Sneetches got really quite smart on that day,
The day they decided that Sneetches are Sneetches
And no kind of Sneetch is the best on the beaches.
That day, all the Sneetches forgot about stars
And whether they had one, or not, upon thars.'
