Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Theodor Seuss Geisel was born on this day in 1904.  JJ and I unknowingly celebrated the birthday of one of our favorite children's authors last evening, when we watched the Minnesota Symphony Orchestra's Notes Alive! production of My Many Colored Days.  While I found the animation (from 1999) dated, we both enjoyed the text as read by Holly Hunter and the music, which was composed by Richard Einhorn.  You can hear two of the movements from the piece here and here, but I highly recommend finding the dvd at a library and enjoying all the "days" in their various moods.

My Many Colored Days
