I’m sure there are some readers out there who are not fans, I however, am a fan of most Dr. #Seuss books. Therefore, I am happy to add The Cat In The Hat to my book list. I can identify with this story in several ways. The first of which is, I hate bad weather. I think most people can empathize with me on that point. Many times, even today, the weather was too cold, and too wet to go out and play. (See what i did there?) The heavy clouds settled into the valley bringing rain, and dusting the mountain peaks with snow. I was left trying to find something to do other than go fishing. Lucky for me I like to write.
One of the other reasons that this book is relevant, is that it’s a testament to the problems with many of today’s youth. A self entitled generation in constant need of stimulation or entertainment. Over the years I have spent a lot of time sitting in front of a window, staring out into the world, wishing things were different. The only thing that I saw was the rest of the world going on around me.
The advice Dr. Seuss offers, is to get off your butt and do something, anything. There is a whole world out there if you are willing to look for it. Fun and adventure await the willing. Of course not every decision will be a good one, but you will never know your potential unless you try. Or, you can keep staring out the window, waiting, and wishing.
