Celebrating Dr Seuss in Springfield MA
One of our favorite stops on last summer’s road trip was the Dr. Seuss Memorial Sculpture Garden in Springfield, Massachusetts. When the kids were little we read all the Dr. Seuss books. One of the first books my oldest was able to read on his own was The Foot Book. Who can quote it with me now? Slow feet/Quick feet/Well feet/Sick feet
