If I lived in a house by the sea. (Carrie Gelson-There's A Book for That)
The real lesson for literature is Allegory (a term none were familiar with) and history (The Cold War) but any reason to bring out a Dr. Seuss book is fine by me. Not many have had The Butter Battle Book read to them (a few had watched the video version at some point) and I made sure my reading style projected both the absurdity of the tale (butter? bread? Yooks? Zooks?) with the sharp political commentary of the Cold War’s nuclear arms race. (Kevin Hodsdon-Kevin's Meandering Mind)
I take her small kindness into my hand and wonder about the river bank the stone lived in before, a place where violent waves smoothed rock.
