Styling Librarian #ThirstDay Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose

December 5, 2013

Thanks to David Etkin for this Thirst Day Meme:

Thidwick

Thidwick The Big-Hearted Moose by Dr. Seuss – I’m still in retro mode- Enormous Crocodile on Tuesday and now my favorite rhyming author… I never felt that things were pushed with Seuss, just naturally fun to read. I loved this book as a read aloud, especially since there is such a rough ending that my son told me was absolutely perfect… I grew up with moose and was expecting the solution to the story but my son chortled and guffawed when we arrived at the ending. I started thinking about the underlying meanings in the book…
Know your limits… Be a better communicator than Thidwick… It is ok to be nice but don’t be a pushover… Speak up for yourself… Some will take advantage of you if you’re kind… Stick with your group… Don’t let others convince you to do something dangerous… People can be users… If something others are doing directly effects you, you must be your own advocate… Stick with people who give as much as they take… Set limits on guests or you’ll regret it… Stand up for yourself without hurting others…

Ok, I’ll stop… but this book really got my brain clicking… What was the inspiration behind this book? I feel lucky in present days when I can read the background ideas authors share…

Goodreads Summary: “When Thidwick allows a motley collection of creatures to set up home in his antlers, the kindly moose soon finds that his guests have gone too far!”

Cranberry juice from Australia… really disliked it, never enjoyed diet juice…
