DR. SEUSS DAY 2018

The nicest thing about children stories is it opens a person’s imagination.  Written in simple words, the adjectives create an image in the mind that makes the reader or listener glued to his or her chair as the story progresses.  Rare are dull moments and may usually goes with appropriate facial, voice and body expressions by the storyteller.  Amidst life’s hustle and bustle, may the tradition of reading children’s stories be preserved.
