Remember your favorite teachers? The ones that taught you your letters and numbers; taught you how to tell right from wrong, and how to treat others well? The ones that inspired you to try new things, take on challenges, and overcome obstacles? Not pretty Miss Havers in the second grade. I mean your FIRST teachers like the Velveteen Rabbit, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Angelina Ballerina, George and Martha, Rotten Ralph, Ramona the Pest, Peter Rabbit, Winnie the Pooh, and the Cat in the Hat. Those favorite teachers. They taught all of us whose parents settled us down (or tried to) at the end of the day by reading us stories of our favorite characters. Toys and figures of our favorite first teachers remind us of storytelling and happy endings. The toys comfort us and reinforce the lessons we have learned. Famed author and illustrator Dr. Seuss first introduced audiences to the curmudgeonly Grinch with his 1957 publication "How the Grinch Stole Christmas!" Although the Grinch appears in only one book, the furry green creature has become one of Dr. Seuss's most iconic characters. In addition to the book, a film adaptation of the story was produced in 1966. Decades later, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas!" remains a holiday favorite in both book and film form.
