Week 5- Symbolism

Hey guys!
So my friend forwarded me this link because he knows how much I enjoy Dr. Seuss and I thought it could create some interesting discussion. I think that as a media maker, especially media that is intended for children, we must truly understand the gravity of our role and produce work that is morally conscious and of valuable substance. One of the main reasons why I love his work is in his genius ability to tell two stories at one time. His witty rhymes are appealing to children's ears while the symbolic meaning of the story is a more grand scale lesson or moral that is taught and a universal lesson to continue to teach. This series of images perfectly and somewhat comically illustrate this idea.


  1. These are awesome! I haven't seen or read any of these stories in a loooong time. I bet if a looked at them now I would appreciate them so much more.

  2. I never knew Dr. Suess addressed such serious topics.
