Never thought I’d get to meet The Cat in the Hat! But yesterday, that dream became a reality.
The Cat, himself, made an appearance during my reading at Twillman Elementary School for NEA’s Read Across America Day.
And let me just say, the students were happy and excited to meet Jake the Snake (of course!) but when that giant Cat strode through the library door, they simply went wild! It was a lot of fun.
After reading Bubbles and introducing the kids to Jake, I actually read Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat to the actual Cat in the Hat! Now what do you think about that?! (Ok, I’m done.)
Today would have been Dr. Seuss’ 109th birthday. I’m sure he would have been so happy to see all of the wonderful Twillman students reading and celebrating!
In other news, I took a (long) day trip on Thursday to Joplin, Missouri to do a little research for a (potential) new book! It was quite the experience.
Not to mention, I got to meet the famous KIX 102.5 DJ Kurt Michaels (aka my good friend, Kurt, who has an awesome new radio job in Joplin).
All in all it was a productive and exciting weekend.
And, yes, I know it wasn’t really the weekend. Sorry.
