Since I was reading Dr. Seuss books so often with Mr. Two, I began to think of ways I could incorporate a Bible lesson into them. I don't do this every time we read every book, but I try to incorporate a biblical truth at least once or twice a day.
Here are some examples of what I might say as we are reading these Dr. Seuss books:
The Eye Book: God gave us eyes to see. We can read the Bible with our eyes and see all the wonderful things He created. I'm so thankful God gave us eyes.
Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?: God gave us voices that can do amazing things. The best thing we can do with our voices is praise God. We can also sing songs with our voices to bring Him praise. God loves to hear us praise Him!
Oh, the Thinks You Can Think!: Our imagination was given to us by God. We can use our imagination to think of ways to honor Him--like how to help others or imagine how others feel. God has the greatest imagination of all! He thought up the entire world and created it all by Himself.
Dr. Seuss's ABC: Sometimes I will throw in B is for Bible or J is for Jesus or S is for serving others. Just to bring the focus back to the Bible.
Hop on Pop: Words are so fun! They make us laugh sometimes. Like when when the books says "Fish in a tree? How can that be?" But words can also make us sad. Like when we yell or say something mean to someone else. God teaches us that words are important. So we should be careful what we say to others. Use kind and helpful words that honor God.
What Dr. Seuss books are you reading these days? How can you incorporate Bible teaching into them while you read?
I'd love to hear your thoughts!
