The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.“ Dr. Seuss said that in I Can Read with My Eyes Shut!, the prefect quote to celebrate Dr. Suess’ birthday and Read Across America Day while exploring this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic: Characters Whose Jobs I Wish I Had. I love reading about characters with unique jobs because it gives a sneak peek into those careers. Who knows, perhaps that’s all the impetus someone needs to go someplace new.
