A month or so ago my daughter wanted to watch Horton Hears a Who, so after it was over I decided to watch the extras which are available on the DVD. There was a small clip of Dr. Seuss's life and how people had always thought his ideas were crazy and didn't think he'd ever get very far in life. His wife commented how he was always sketching odd things and would make up funny words. Little did she know how much his peculiar imagination would create an such an empire in Children's Literature. His books they truly are timeless and I'm so grateful for the people who believe in themselves and have the guts enough to block out everyone else and do what they love.
These little zoo animal valentine's are a cute alternative to the average candy hearts. I found these plastic animals at Target where there were also small tubs of sea animals and dinosaurs.
here for the valentines, cut out, glue animals using hot glue or glue dots. Feel free to add some baker's twine before gluing.
