Invasive Species In A Nutshell
by TheLorax

Lots of talk these days about invasive species and seems as if there are a lot of people trying to make sense of all the bad press some plants and animals are getting lately who are interested in learning more about them. The below is...

Default Brilliant!

On Beyond Zebra is one of my favorites; I own it, and I don't have any excuse (like kids). Another is Bartholomew and the Oobleck, and Happy Birthday To You!
Thanks for the analogy; I've shared it with my fellow Va Master Naturalists.

Thank you for the compliment kathiwren. We do not need an excuse to own the book. (giggle) I own two well worn copies of the book.

What a great analogy for kids! I love Dr. Seuss, have every book he's ever written I think. I grew up with him and so did my kids. We had a neighbor who had small children the same age as ours who didn't approve of kids reading Dr. Seuss. They said that they'd never learn REAL words. Nonsense! I feel sorry for kids denied the fun of his stories. I didn't feel like a bad parent for reading them to my kids. He was also very clever at approaching social issues that children could learn from. One of my favorites was "The Sneetches".

"Now, the Star-Belly Sneetches
Had bellies with stars.
The Plain-Belly Sneetches
Had none upon thars."

A great lesson in pride and envy. Now I feel like reading a few Seussian stories!
