March 2nd is Dr. Seuss’ birthday, and to celebrate, the #50preciouswords contest is now open. Don’t know what the #50preciouswords contest is, then head on over to Vivian Kirkfield’s website here to read all about it.
It was Bennett Cerf, Dr. Seuss’ editor at Random House, that challenged Dr. Seuss to write a story using no more than 50 unique words (not the word count). The result: Green Eggs and Ham.
So now our challenge is on to write a #50preciousword story of our own.
Thank you Vivian for all that you do to support the kid lit community. You are a true inspiration!
