"And I said, You can stop, if you want, with the Z
Because most people stop with the Z
But not me!
In the places I go there are things that I see
That I never could spell if I stopped with the Z.
I'm telling you this 'cause you're one of my friends
My alphabet starts where your alphabet ends!"
I am a huge fan of Dr. Seuss (his postal stamp is a part of my growing collection) but I had never heard of this particular book. I look forward to finishing it and using it as reference material next time I have a little art chat with some students. Thank you, Sheila! Your gift was the best kind there is...unexpected!
