Bestselling children’s author, Theodor Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss is being remembered all across America for his imaginative stories that puts our tongue into a twist! March 2nd is Geisel’s birthday, which has been turned into National Read Across America Day in schools, libraries and even the White House to honor the iconic storyteller.
This is the perfect day to gather ’round the kids for a fun story time to get lost in Seussville of his many works and his wacky characters! Crack open the Cat In The Hat, Green Eggs and Ham or perhaps make it a Wacky Wednesday with Dr. Seuss!
This is the 14th year for Read Across America Day, where thousands of children and big children at heart take a journey into Dr. Seuss’ imaginative world with all his famous characters like The Cat in the Hat, Horton, Fox in Sox and who could forget The Grinch.
Even the White House was celebrating by treating children and families to a reading of Green Eggs and Ham from First Lady Michelle Obama at the Library of Congress. She was joined by special guests, actress Jessica Alba, Green Bay’s wide receiver Donald Driver and many others.
