He grew up in a time of great protection and care, and it is obvious in his writing that he wanted children to not only enjoy and have fun with his stories, but to learn from them because he truly cared. There follows the running theme of Geisel’s belief of the importance and impact of proper education during childhood throughout his life. Although Theodor Seuss Geisel passed away in 1991, his lessons and stories continue to be as popular as ever. Not only are his books still being sold, many of which are classics, but several movies have been made recently, based on these books. Some of these that I have seen are a cartoon version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, a ‘real-life’ version starring Jim Carrey as the Grinch, The Cat in the Hat (starring Mike Meyers), and Horton Hears A Who, which was another cartoon film featuring the voices of Jim Carrey and Steve Carell.
Finally a simple thought of the future brought the hope that ultimately inspired him to persevere and succeed in learning to read and write. From the moment Frederick Douglass was given the tools to read “books” he was overcome with a joy and excitement for knowledge that inspired him to persevere regardless of the beliefs of others. As a slave Douglass was sent to live with his masters the Hugh family, during his time there his master’s wife began to teach him to read “books”. The lessons gave the young boy a chance to explore worlds he never imagined and was the beginning of an undeniable love for literature. Unfortunately when his master was informed of this he immediately halted all the lessons.

Secondly, books are people’s best teachers and provide real life knowledge for kids and adults who are trying to comprehend subjects that we not taught throughout the many years of education. Finally content and books serve the greater good and allow all people to learn, come together and be inspired. Content and books serve a prominent purpose in this nation and are the reason that many people’s voices and opinions were heard much like the creation of the constitution, which gives the government no reason to take books and online content away.

Children’s books contain important life lessons and teach many children the basic values they will hold for the remainder of their lives. Examples of the best range from the well-known Dr. Seuss books, to the always-popular Winnie the Pooh books.
The first poem in the collection is Collins’ own “Introduction to Poetry,” a humorous description of how people treat poems and a useful technique to explore poems. Tania Runyan wrote How to Read a Poem based on “Introduction,” and “poetry how-to” books are useful for a teacher who wants to move beyond exposure, or for a teacher whose students have read poems and are now demanding answers regarding them. Although her list is slightly dated now, Colleen Ruggieri’s favorite books and websites are interesting and useful to other teachers. An educator should not hail these books like Bibles, but students should be taught to explore poems while reading. Runyan’s guide is a great model because she explains the techniques thoroughly, provides her
Students Name: Professor’s Name: Course: Institution: Date: Fictional Cautionary Tales Read by Children and Adults Fictional tales are read by both children and adults. The practice of reading fictional children stories has been in existence, far exceeding humankind’s modern human history. Children and adults alike have learned from the cautionary tales each retaining a piece of insight most relevant to their very being.

They would claim that, as children are far less cognitively developed, their minds are exceedingly easily formed by such stories.
