Subway Reading

I work at Child’s Play Communications and travel into New York City each day by subway, which takes about 30 minutes from where I live in Queens. On this particular day, I got a seat, which makes the ride very pleasant. I enjoy people watching immensely, and in New York City, well, there is always something to look at. Queens in a real melting pot and so I generally spot people of all different nationalities quietly reading their prayer books and murmuring aloud their prayers or counting rosary beads, to start their day on a positive and hopeful note. Others are immersed in juicy paperback novels by John Grisham, Nora Roberts, Dan Brown and the like. However, on this day, I glanced up and saw something unusual–a woman completely immersed in the classic, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss.

    That is AWESOME! I love that book… that one and “Go Dog Go.” 😉
    But definitely a subway sight that makes you go “hmmmm.”

    I wonder if she is learning English and practicing to read to her child?

    Gee, I don’t know, but you could be right that she is learning English. Dr. Seuss books are great for that. My mom, a retired teacher, used Dr. Seuss books in that way. Just seeing this cracked me up, though as it was so unexpected, even in NYC!
