And since next week is also Read Across America week I wanted to tie everything together with some cute bookmarks with a Seussy theme. After all, using a bookmark is good book care.
Unfortunately, the original version of these bookmarks had to be taken down due to copyright issues involving the Seuss name. Such a shame since the clipart was being used for educational purposes and in a way to encourage kids to read which is why Theodore Giesel wrote his children's books in the first place. Kind of hypocrytical too, considering the new Seuss movie that just came out is all about how corporate greed is evil. Just saying. Or perhaps Stephen Colbert says it best in this video clip.
This comic spoof by Ruben Bolling hits the nail on the head, too. Can you tell this issue has really riled me up?
Please excuse my "Grinch"iness, but this whole business just gets up my nose. Anyway, hope you enjoy the new version of the bookmark. You can get it here. And hope you haven't lost your love of the true Seuss, the one who was about fostering a love of reading, not of greed.
