March is Reading Month, Tip #2: Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!
Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!
In honor of Doctor Seuss's birthday, the NEA designates March 2 as "Read Across America Day". Many schools do special programs: even Colby Dog will be presenting at a school that day! (If only we had a Seuss hat for her to wear with her Service Dog Vest!)
Dr. Seuss is a fun way to play with rhythm, rhyme, and word combinations. Stories range from The Cat in the Hat to The Sneetches to And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street.
So serve some green eggs and ham via Rachel Ray (or from this cookbook), make oobleck after school, or just rhyme a lot to amuse yourself.
Be sure to grab some Seuss from the shelf today!
