Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

Tomorrow is the birthday of Theodore Geisel.  He was born in 1904 and wrote children's books under his own name and the pseudonyms of Theo LeSieg and Dr. Seuss.

We have a Dr. Seuss theme in preschool this year.  We've been enjoying the many works of Dr. Seuss.  Tomorrow we are wearing stripes and silly socks.  Thursday we will make Cat in the Hat hats and green eggs and ham.

My first and third graders are participating in Read Across America Day tomorrow.  Both of their classes are having Read-Ins.  They are bringing some of their favorite books, a pillow, and a snack.  Colby also has a striped shirt picked out.  For a portion of the day they will relax and read for enjoyment.  I love that!

Take a few moments to share a Dr. Seuss (or another wonderful author) book with your children tomorrow!

  1. Yes! Dr Seuss is awesome. Reading is awesome. I love that Colby has picked out a special comfy reading shirt, lol. I'll be thinking of all the kids doing Read Across America while I slog through my Robert Jordan. :)
