RMP Teachers Share Their Favorite Dr. Seuss Books

February 26, 2019   |   By Rocky Mountain Prep

This week, we are celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday and Read Across America Week! In celebration, we asked five Rocky Mountain Prep teachers to share their favorite Dr. Seuss books with us.

Check out their responses below!

Bridget Joyce, fourth-grade teacher at RMP Southwest

Green Eggs and Ham

Ms. Joyce shared that, “As a child, I was a very picky eater. This book used to crack me up because everything I ate was the same color. Though, I only enjoyed beige foods, never anything green! (like broccoli...or green eggs & ham).”

   

Cary Meyers, third-grade teacher at RMP Creekside

The Lorax

Ms. Meyer’s favorite Dr. Seuss book is The Lorax. She shared with us, “It is such a fun book that helps us think about the environment and what is important to us.”

   

Tom Letourneau, kindergarten teacher at RMP Berkeley

Bartholomew and the Oobleck

Mr. Letourneau said, “My favorite Dr. Seuss book is Bartholomew and the Oobleck. It is kind of a hidden Seuss gem. I love the illustrations, where the vibrant green oobleck is the only color, and the lesson on humility and grace. I teach it every year and make slime with my students. They love the oobleck's ingredients and saying the magic words!”

   

Isabel Nevarez, pre-k teaching assistant at RMP Creekside

Oh, The Places You’ll Go!

Ms. Nevarez shared, “My favorite Dr. Seuss book is Oh, The Places You'll Go! I love the message Dr. Seuss tells his readers about persevering to see where life takes them, no matter what age they may be.”

   

Nora McNeil, pre-k teacher at RMP Fletcher

The Lorax

Ms. McNeil shared, “My favorite Dr. Seuss book is The Lorax because of its themes of equity, environmentalism and greed that are present in kid-friendly language and metaphors. As he writes in the book, ‘unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.’ The Lorax encourages students to think critically about their impact and choices, and how to face big problems with courage.”
