Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
Today is Dr. Seuss' birthday!! He was born March 2, 1904, in Springfield, Massachusetts. If you are ever in Springfield, you can visit the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Gardens.
The best thing you can do to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday is to read a book with a child in your life. School children all across America participate in "Read Across America". The National Education Association is building a nation of readers through its signature program, Read Across America. Now in its thirteenth year, this year-round program focuses on motivating children and teens to read through events, partnerships, and reading resources.
So, Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! I know I love all the funny books that you wrote during your life time! And today we share these books with the children we love. We read to them and (even better) they read their favorite books to US!
