I've been reading my daughter a lot of Dr Seuss books to put her to sleep, lately. I'd had a couple of his books for a while, but just got A Baker's Dozen.
It's kind of weird for me, reading them, because I didn't read them growing up, generally. The only time I remember reading them was when I was at the doctor's office, waiting for my appointments.
While those aren't horrific memories, they aren't great ones either (plus, I think I only read a few of them back then), so it feels a bit weird to read them to her. At the same time, the poetry's great, and now I see why a lot of my college friends liked them so much. I suspect I just never got the lyricism reading them back then.
