Visit to Dr. Seuss memorial gardens

Standard

One of the places that’s been on my bucket list since I moved to New England 11 years ago was to go to the Dr. Seuss memorial garden in Springfield, MA. We finally had a reason to go to Springfield (another post soon), so while there I decided to make a pit stop.

Although it was a little smaller than I imagined, so not really worth the trip by itself but if you plan on going to the Springfield Musuems, then totally step outside and see the gardens as well!

Dr. Seuss has always been my number one favorite author of children’s books and this outdoor exhibit’s sculptures were so lifelike and life size that it made them so much better than I expected!

Leah said it best, “it’s just like the Mo Willems book, ‘We Are in a Book!'” And Joey, his face was of pure joy! He knew exactly what/who the sculptures were! I have to say, kneeling down to get a picture with the Lorax, I almost felt like he was going to come to life! I’m not sure who had a better time that day, me or the kids!

 

Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!
