A Person's a Person No Matter How Small


The other day, when I went on a hike with friends to Mt. Carmel falls this little guy found a flower and his dad said, "Look Quinn, it's like the flower from Horton Hears a Who".  I had to take a picture because he was 100% correct.  It was exactly like the flower from the classic children's book by the wonderful Dr. Seuss!

For those of you who don't know what I am talking about, treat yourself (and your children, if you have any) to this book about a lovable elephant who saves a tiny planet of people who live on a flower.  I was practically raised on Dr. Seuss books and I swear I can still hear my dad's animated voice reading, "I meant what I said and I said what I meant, an elephant's faithful one hundred percent!!" 

The main theme is one to always be mindful of, and that is the fact that we should always treat others with kindness and respect because, after all, "a person's a person, no matter how small".

Just a nice little story and a pretty little flower to brighten your day.

Love,
Brittany & Scott

Brit, That is one of my favorite Dr. Suess books! My neighbor's little guy played the narrator, Dr. Seuss, in a musical this last Spring! Loved it! That little flower is a blossom to a tropical weed which when touched, the leaves on the stem fold down & go to sleep! My kids played with the leaves every time we saw one down in Brazil. This last August, we were in Sanibel Island & we saw it there too! I have a beautiful closeup shot of one!
I hope you're feeling great! Scott I'm certain will be entertaining your little one with an animated voice while reading many great Dr Seuss books!
