So fun to say, even today! Dr. Suess has always been one with whimsical, magical words and phrases. It has always been fun to have them roll off the tongue! It was one of my son’s favorite, must-read books. He learned to “read” it, and The Foot Book, at the age of 2. I think it was one of the deciding books that made him actually learn to read. By the time he was 3, he was reading by himself, really reading! But he didn’t enjoy this book so much by himself. He loved it when I read it with him. He learned my expressives (is that a word??), my tone, my character I tried to embed into Sam, and that other guy. He truly had fun with it. 

It was hard to read, over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and still keep the same tone, characterizations and fun going

I did not like it, Sam-I-Am. 

But in the end, when all was said and done, and he was reading books before he went into pre-school, to find out none of the other kids knew how to read yet, to find out in Kindergarten that he was reading at a 3rd grade level, to find out in First Grade he was accepted into the gifted program, well….it was worth all those readings….over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over. 

Hey, it’s really not so bad…
this reading here and there
this reading everywhere!
as long as we do it
together!

To this day, I quote it when I just don’t like something and things don’t go my way. 🙂 

“I do not like it Sam-I-Am” So fun, and a cute way to remind us of our childhood!
