Sparks/Awww Mondays

Today is the birthday of Dr. Seuss, AKA Theodore Geisel. Mau and Cooper Murphy are here to celebrate with a Spark from Dr. Seuss. (And, of course, Mau Baked a cake.)


Dr. Seuss Birthday


The children’s literature author’s birthday has become the annual date for Read Across America Day created by the National Education Association. March 2 marks the NEA’s annual nationwide reading celebration. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries and community centers participate by bringing together children, teens and books. Pet bloggers have a long tradition of participating in and supporting this effort to promote reading and do so with posts and blog hops.

This year we are joining the special Awww Mondays blog hop hosted by our friend, Sandee, from Comedy Plus.


The saying, “Laughter is the best medicine,” is so true, which is why I selected this Seuss quote for today’s Spark. Our nation is in crisis, and we all need something we can laugh about to bolster our spirits.

Take some time today to read a book that will make you laugh!

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie is taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Many of us still continue to post a Spark on Monday, as we believe in Annie’s vision: “I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!”


The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky

Tomorrow, our favorite tabbies, Periwinkle & Stinky, will be off on another adventure. We will be posting the adventure tomorrow, and they have their paws crossed you will join them.
