favorite book friday

my little buddy woke up in the night throwing up. poor little guy- he was in the church nursery more than usual this week and just couldn't withstand the bug going around. so in honor of my little man, i present buddy's favorite book (this week):

i cannot count how many times we have read this book this week alone! but i don't mind it at all- it is such a wonderful story. one of determination, doing what you say you're going to do ( "i meant what i said and i said what i meant, an elephant's faithful 100%" ), not being lazy and then wanting the reward of hard work. if you don't have this book in your home library, first slap yo'self upside the head, and then go get it.

in my humble opinion, this is dr. seuss' finest work- his opus, if you will...

what's your favorite dr. seuss book?

We really like the Foot Book, but honestly, we've just scratched the surface of Seuss ;-).

Yes, yes! I love Horton Hatches the Egg! The Sneetches is also a favorite!

Sorry 'bout Buddy! Feel better, lil' man!

Very appropriate choice with the man's birthday coming up and all. I love too many of his books to mention. They are just fun to read.
