River School Celebrates Dr. Suess’s Birthday

River School celebrated dr. suess's birthdayOn March 2nd, our little River Schoolers celebrated the birthday of Dr. Suess! Besides enjoying books by Dr. Suess, the children created their own rhyming stories. Later in the month we will also be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with a green bagel breakfast that all of our River School families are invited to. In honor of one of our favorite authors at River School, here is Dr. Suess’s Happy Birthday To You.

If we didn’t have birthdays,
you wouldn’t be you.
If you’d never been born,
well then what would you do?
If you’d never been born,
well then what would you be?
You might be a fish!
Or a toad in a tree!
You might be a doorknob!
Or three baked potatoes!
You might be a bag full of
hard green tomatoes.

Or worse than all that…
Why, you might be a WASN’T!
A Wasn’t has no fun at all.
No, he doesn’t.

A Wasn’t just isn’t. He just
isn’t present. But you…
You ARE YOU!
And, now isn’t that pleasant!

Dr. Suess would be happy he is still positively affecting so many children in schools for toddlers nationwide.
