Dr Seuss’s stories are some of those that have encouraged generations of young readers. Originally written to help support speech development and language acquisition, Seuss’s stories grew to introduce colourful, quirky characters, messages and phrases to young readers all over the world.
The Grinch Who Stole Christmas taught us the true meaning of celebration. The Cat In The Hat taught us how clever, resourceful and creative we could be as young children and how we could have power and authority over our lives. The Lorax taught us to love and treasure our world and take nothing for granted.
Seussical Jr carries with it morals upon morals. The RASCALS have explored the meaning of friendship and how sometimes we don’t notice the best things we have because our heads are in the clouds. We learn that ‘a person’s a person no matter how small’ – a very important message for a young cast to take away. Most importantly however, we learnt not to judge; to be lifelong learners and to show kindness to all in our path. Whether a Who, a Wickersham or a Sour Kangaroo!
