Canadian Classroom Deems Dr. Seuss TOO Political!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueBookzSchool

No, Canada!

A school district in Canada has banned a Dr. Seuss quote from an elementary school classroom for being "too political."

The problematic lines were from the classic Yertle The Turtle and they go as follows:

“I know up on top you are seeing great sights, but down here on the bottom, we too should have rights”

We can see how, out of context, that quote could be political, but it still seems a bit harsh to ban it from the classroom.

What would the Cat In The Hat say in times like these???

Tim Tebow Reads The Dr. Seuss Classic, Green Eggs And Ham

Filed under: InspirationBookzEducational

What a Sweetie!!

Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow wants to read Green Eggs And Ham to your kids!

The pro baller and a organization called BOOK IT! teamed up make this video to promote children reading for kids.

Why Green Eggs and Ham? Tebow said:

"Pretty much how I learned to read was with Green Eggs And Ham. There were a few others that I loved, but Green Eggs And Ham was definitely my favorite."

This cause is close to Tim, who was diagnosed with dyslexia when he was a tot. He wants this video to inspire kids to enjoy reading, the way this book helped him when he was younger.

Show your kids Tim's video (above) and see if his plan worked!
