Poetry Friday - from Dr. Seuss's Oh the Places You'll Go!
Dr. Seuss's birthday is coming right up - it's March 2nd. It's a day to celebrate reading - wahoo!!! Here's a short poem by Dr. Seuss, one of the great kings of rhyming, from his book Oh, the Places You'll Go. It's a fabulous book, but better for older kids, like middle school and up, than most of his other books, which are great for younger kids.
You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
You’re on your own.
And you know what you know.
You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
