More Dr. Seuss!




This site
features a great retrospective of Dr. Seuss' work during World War II.

It's interesting to see the style we usually equate with characters like the Cat in the Hat being used in a different context.





This is not our first posting about political cartoons, so obviously we think they're cool, and valuable in the classroom.

The depictions of the Japanese, in particular, are more than a little off-putting today. Maybe that's something you and your students could consider.

How does war influence our perceptions of the enemy? How will today's enemy be depicted tomorrow?
