Quote challenge – Day 1

Yvette, over at priorhouse blog, kindly nominated me to take part in the three day quote challenge. I love a good quote so I decided that I would join in starting today. You can find Yvette’s post for day 2 here: https://priorhouse.wordpress.com/2017/10/26/thursday-doors-buffalo-ny-throwback/#respond

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” ~ Dr. Seuss

I love Dr Seuss and my own writing for children has definitely been influenced by all of his marvelous books.

My absolutely favorite book from his amazing collection is The Cat in the Hat and I have even read it with Gregory in French (sort of) and with Michael in Afrikaans. I love the naughty antics of Thing One and Thing Two.

The quote that I have chosen for today is from the book, The Lorax, which is a delightful story, told in rhyming verse, about the Lorax, who speaks for the trees which are being cut down by the Once-ler. I used this book to teach the children in my Sunday School about the dangers of human and corporate greed to our natural environment. If you haven’t read this fantastic book, you really must!

Thank you, Yvette, for this nomination. I nominate the following three bloggers to join in the fun [if you want to, of course]:
