Happy Birthday Dr Seuss
Read Across America Day
Celebrates Dr. Seuss’ Birthday
Once I was a little girl, who loved to read Dr Seuss book, then I became a mother and continued to read Dr Seuss books to my son. Now an adult I still enjoy the wonder stories and the lessons Dr Seuss provided.
Celebrate with me and continue to read. Read to your children, to yourself, your spouse, your dog and cats. Keep reading and celebrate the gifts authors share with us, there words.
Fourteen years ago the National Education Association designated March 2 as “Read Across America Day.” That date was chosen in celebration of the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss.
Each of the 48 books authored by the good Dr. contained a lesson wrapped in magic. There is Horton the egg hatching elephant who remained loyal to his cause; the Loraxes who fought for the environment; and perhaps most famous of all, the ubiquitous Cat in the Hat, who brought sunshine to a rainy day.
All of these characters operated in a world of brilliant colors, fantastical feats and inventive wordplay.
The celebration will continue Saturday in Springfield, Massachusetts, Geisel’s hometown.
