She loved listening to me read it and I loved reading it to her.
That began my love affair with Dr. Seuss books.
When I had children of my own, I naturally added those books to our library. My kids loved listening to me read them and I loved reading those books to my kids.
We were all happy.
Fast forward many years. I now enjoy reading Dr. Seuss books to my grandkids and they enjoy listening to me read the books to them. (Do you see a pattern here, Dear Reader?)
Because of that love affair, I was thrilled to stumble across a wonderful webpage where you can create personalized signs using characters from Dr. Seuss’ books. How cool is that?
Here are a couple of signs that I created using my grandchildren’s names
Aren’t those signs terrific? Can you imagine being a little kid and getting a picture like one of these that is personalized with your own name?
Click here to go to the page that generates signs using these characters so you can make fun signs for your own grandkids.
There are several fun things that you can do with the pictures that you generate. You can right-click on the picture and:
- Save it to your computer. Then put that picture in a Word document to print up and give a grandchild.
- Print up and put in a picture frame for a grandchild to hang on her bedroom wall.
- Create your own story book using the signs that you generate.
- Print it for a grandchild to put in her locker at school.
- Send it as an e-mail attachment to a grandchild.
You could also right-click on the image and e-mail a link to your grandchild. (This will open your e-mail program so you can put in your grandchild’s e-mail address in the message.) It will automatically insert a link to the picture. When your grandchild gets the e-mail, she can click on the link and it will open up the picture in a browser. This is great for those grandchildren who live far away.
You can right-click on the picture and ‘share’ it which will send it to Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Tumblr. Although, I can’t imagine that my grandkids — that are seven-years-old and younger — would be interested very much in those sharing options! However, teenaged grandchildren could get a kick out of this.
If your grandkids live far away, you could send them the link to the site and they could generate their own signs.
But what if your grandchild is not into Dr. Seuss? That’s okay. There are other options.
You can also create signs with Peanuts characters.
Wait! There’s more!
You can also create a sign that is the billboard to a drive-in movie theater marquee. Sweet.
You and your grandkids could have quite a bit of fun exploring this site and creating personalized signs.
