Lately, I've seen a lot of ranting social media posts.
"Those left wing liberals are trying to cancel Dr. Seuss!"
No one is cancelling Dr. Seuss! There are just some books in question.
I will always associate the pandemic times, with the confused and complicated cancel culture topic.
Reading to Charlotte
I can't wait to read Dr. Seuss to this little girl someday. I hope she adores the illustrations and the soothing rhythms, of the Seuss books. Seuss' zoo book will stay tucked away, until she's old enough for discussion.
We own Don's childhood copy of "If I Ran the Zoo". Two years ago, I wanted to use it as a prop, for a Zoo Theme, that I was doing with some senior groups. When I picked up the 70 year old book, I gulped an illustration of...
Oh how I love children's books. These books are special ones, that Charlie's aunt picked out for her.
I read most of these to my kids. There's a Dr. Seuss title included. Dr. Seuss shared some pretty amazing messages in most of his books. No one is boycotting all Dr. Seuss books!
Books I Never Had
I love these books that Heidi received at her shower.
I don't remember any books from my childhood, that empowered little girls. Well, maybe Pippi Longstocking. Pippi gave me confidence to be myself. Charlie will need some good books and good parenting to prepare her for this crazy world!
When Charlotte gets just a little older, she can cross the street to her neighbor's Little Library.
The cute little box, just popped up the other day. What a perfect way to share with neighbors, during these isolated times.
There's even a bottle of hand sanitizer and a tiny garden on top. There are children's books and adult books. Today, I added a book that Don just finished. Then, I wrote a message in the library journal.
By the time we got back to the Airbnb, the sun was still out. I could see Mount Hood again!
It was about 55 degrees, so I grabbed a blanket and some tea. All this thought about books... I decided it was time to read!
Cancer - Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
