I didn't realize it was Dr. Seuss' birthday until it was almost noon. As soon as I did, though, I knew I had to acknowledge it in the blogosphere. But what to do?
|You never see the Once-ler -- only his hands.|
|So for today's puppet (and in tribute to Theodore), I made some green gloves to recreate the Once-ler. I had some great fabric in my stash that worked perfectly!|
|The whole family at work -- with hands galore! (No faces...)|
|My daughter's knitting project (the same daughter who used to request this story over and over again!). She does some great stitching.|
|I think it's actually scarier that you cannot see the Once-ler's face. You cannot look into his eyes; he cannot look into yours. There is no chance to connect on a personal level.|
|Hands can portray emotions -- like excitement!|
But we can all agree on this: Let's give Dr. Seuss a big hand!
