Seuss is in Springfield!
You should hop, skip, or run!
Seuss is in Springfield!
Bring your kids, it is fun! 

Two hours from Boston
In a trip in your car,
Give or take a few minutes,
It’s really not far!

We made the trip
With our kids — total five.
I promise, for real,
It’s well worth the drive!

To get to Readingville you’ll pass by
A seven hump Wump,
But so many books you’ll find there!
You can’t be a grump!

Technology awaits you
On screens big and small,
Nothing’s off limits,
Put your hands on it all!

Familiar friends here to see you,
What do you think about that?
Meet Horton and two Things
And the Cat in the Hat!

You can write some dreams upstairs,
And send them on down.
Reading these wishes,
I dare you to frown!

Downstairs there are crafts,
You can cut, draw, and paste!
Seuss-filled activities!
There’s no time to waste!

There’s stuff you can’t touch on one floor of three,
But on this floor you will learn some great history!
Where did Seuss sit to write? And where did he live?
It’s really quite the sight, so much insight to give!

Outside there are sculptures,
Metal, shiny, and tall.
Inside there are demos,
Along a long wall

To show you how Cindy Lou
Came from the clay,
To be the fun sculpture
You pose with today!

There’s so much fun to see here,
At the Dr. Seuss Museum,
But don’t jump in the car, dear,
When you think you’ve finished seein’ him!

Your admission to Seuss isn’t it,
you’re not done!
It gets you in to FIVE museums!
Oh, what fun fun fun
FUN!

There’s art here to see,
and a fine arts museum
There’s science to do,
there are dinos,
Go see ’em!

Don’t forget the history of Springfield
And the Indian motorcycle exhibition.
They are great fun to see,
you should make it your mission!

The museums are open
every day until 5,
You can get tickets online,
or in person after the drive!

Twenty five dollars for taller kids, such as me.
(You can call me “adult” — but I haven’t grown up much, you see!)
Thirteen dollars for youth, from 17 to 3,
And for you little wee ones — you babies are free!

Deanna is a mom of five (yes, five) children, who lives in Brockton with her small circus of kids, her husband, their dog Penny, and a few cats. Her life is loud, energetic, mostly fun, often gross (did she mention four of those kids are boys?), and she wouldn't have it any other way. In between carting kids to school, baseball, gymnastics, guitar, dance, track and field and every other kid activity known to mankind, she works as a school bus driver for the city of Brockton, and is the Director of Religious Education at the Unity Church of North Easton, a Unitarian Universalist congregation. Deanna also holds degrees in Elementary Physical Education and Dance Education, which she plans to put back into use one day. At parties, Deanna can often be found hanging out with family pets. She follows her children around with a camera like the paparazzi, is pretty sure that 97% of her blood stream is made of coffee, and her laundry is never done. You can also find her blogging at https://eighteenmoreyearsofburpsandfarts.wordpress.com
