Dr. Seuss Birthday Freebies and Goodies

Dr. Seuss’ birthday is on March 2. Dr Seuss, or Theodor Seuss Geisel, s the beloved author who is widely known for his children’s books. Dr Seuss’ birthday corresponds with Read Across America Day

What better way to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday than reading to a child? On the evening of March 2nd (Dr. Seuss’s birthday), Random House and the National Education Association urge you to participate in the second annual Read Across America and read to a child.

Dr. Seuss epitomizes a love of children and learning. Also, his use of rhyme makes his books an effective tool for teaching young children the basic skills they need to be successful. When we celebrate Dr. Seuss and reading, we send a clear message to America’s children that reading is fun and important.
