Words of Wisdom from Dr. Seuss

December 8th, 2008 by admin

… It started in low, then it started to grow

But this, this sound wasn’t sad. What, this sound sounded glad

Every Who down in Who-ville, the tall and the small, was singing without any presents at all

He hadn’t stopped Christmas from coming, it came. Somehow or other, it came just the same…

… He paused, and the Grinch put a hand to his ear

And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so?

It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags.

And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before.

What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.

Well, what happened then, well in Who-ville they say,

that the Grinch’s small heart grew three sizes that day…

    The Grinch stole Christmas because he doesn’t like Christmas. At the end, his heart gets bigger & bigger & bigger and he brings back all the presents and the trees. The Grinch is nice to everybody now and had a Christmas feast with the Whos.

    It’s Mommy’s favorite one and Dr. Seuss liked to write books about interesting things. The Grinch is mean at the beginning and at the end he thought of something he hadn’t thought of before–Christmas is not about presents, or ribbon or toys, Christmas is all about having fun and being with family.
