My kids are getting older, but one thing I hope they will never outgrow is a love of Dr. Seuss. There are so many layers to this master storyteller/ artist, and you can keep learning throughout the years. As an ode to one of my favorite authors AND my homeschooling heart, I’ve compiled the ultimate resource for all things Seussical. Find a new favorite book, and let the learning begin!
