I can consider myself a fan of Dr. Seuss because I have so many of his books in my library. Who knew that there are more means to experience Dr. Seuss? Two weeks ago I got a 24-piece Fox in Socks puzzle as a gift from khaleh Kathy. Since then I’ve spent a lot of time trying to solve it. Daddy helped at the beginning by selecting for me only 8 puzzle pieces at a time, so I would have to put together only the left side (Knox in Box), the right side (Fox in Socks), or the middle (blocks, chicks, bricks and clocks) of the puzzle. It didn’t take long for me to become a pro at solving the whole puzzle; in fact I engage in this activity every day (sometimes several times a day) and I would dare to say that solving the puzzle is my favorite activity these days.
It’s been a few months now since khaleh Kathy gave me a set of 2-piece puzzles and it took me a while to figure out what to do with them. At the beginning daddy made it easier for me to solve the puzzles: he used to give me only two matching halves and let me struggle with the matching mechanics. In the next phase, daddy used to give me four halves, making sure that the matching pieces were easy to identify because of the their background color. Eventually I became pretty good at this game: nowadays we spread half of the pieces on the coffee table, then I find the match for whatever other piece I pick from a pile. Below is a set of pictures showing me in the process.
