Remember when that was "big time" reading and you wore a big grin on your face for mastering those lines? I think each of us can share a "Dr. Seuss moment of reading happiness." Maybe it was from reading one of his books to yourself, or perhaps it was from reading a book to a child. Next Tuesday Seuss will be honored with a Seussentennial celebration of his 100th birthday. This week I read THE BOY ON FAIRFIELD STREET: How Ted Geisel Grew Up to Become Dr. Seuss, a new book out by Kathleen Krull. For Seuss fans, it is quite a treat.

We are running a poll on asking how many of you plan to see "The Passion of The Christ." Please click the link below to let us know what you think.
