Read your book and eat it, too!

I’d like to think that every book lover wants a personal book cake. I, for one, would love to have my favorite books immortalized not only in my head but also in my taste buds. 🙂 My sweet tooth and book lust have finally found the perfect home in these customized cakes! They’re too beautiful to eat, though. 🙂 Nonetheless, I’m sure it’s worth devouring every single bite the same way books are worth relishing every single page. Enjoy! 🙂

Happy Birthday to you, Dr. Seuss! :)

Today is a happy day because it’s Dr. Seuss’ 108th birthday! 🙂 Let me start by greeting him the Birthday Bird way:

If we didn’t have birthdays,
you wouldn’t be you. 
If you’d never been born,
well then what would you do?
If you’d never been born,
well then what would you be?
You might be a fish!
Or a toad in a tree!
You might be a doorknob!
Or three baked potatoes!
You might be a bag full of
hard green tomatoes.

Or worse than all that…Why,
you might be a WASN’T!
A Wasn’t has no fun at all.
No, he doesn’t.
A Wasn’t just isn’t.
He just isn’t present.
But you…You ARE YOU!
And, now isn’t that pleasant!

Today you are you!
That is truer than true!
There is no one alive…
…who is you-er than you!
Shout loud, “I am lucky
to be what I am!
Thank goodness I’m not
just a clam or a ham
Or a dusty old jar of
sour gooseberry jam!
I am what I am!
That’s a great thing to be!
If I say so myself,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

Theodor Seuss Geisel,more popularly known as Dr. Seuss, was born on March 2, 1904. In honor of his remarkable contribution to the book industry, his birth date was adopted as the National Read Across America Day. Geisel was a writer-poet and cartoonist famous for publishing children’s books with fascinating characters coupled with rhyming poetry using the trisyllabic meter. This is a kind of rhythm wherein every third syllable is more stressed than the others. When you read it that way, the story becomes more animated! Read the words in bold louder than the others and see:

And today the Great Yertle, that Marvelous he

Is King of the Mud. That is all he can see.

What’s more amazing about Geisel was that he was the one who illustrated all the drawings in his books! The first Dr. Seuss book that was published was “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street”. Mulberry Street is located in Springfield, Massachusetts where Geisel was born. The most celebrated Dr. Seuss books are “The Cat in the Hat”, “Green Eggs and Ham”, “Horton Hears a Who!”, “One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish”, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” and “Horton Hatches the Egg”.

Most of his books were made into movies, too! The latest of which is “Lorax” coming to theatres this March!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DR. SEUSS! Thank you for making lots of children enjoy the world of books. 🙂 Here are some of the best quotes from Dr. Seuss. 🙂 Enjoy!

“And will you succeed? Yes you will indeed!
Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed!”
