March 2, 2018 is Dr. Seuss’ Birthday and to celebrate we’ve created a round-up of fun things to do around town.
This is a day millions of children across the country will celebrate the birthday of prolific children’s author, Dr. Seuss. Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, was born on March 2, 1904, and went on to write more than 60 children’s books, including classics like The Cat in the Hat, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and Green Eggs and Ham. He also made significant contributions to children’s literacy and established a renowned children’s education foundation. Through his books, Seuss used alliteration, rhyme, and repetition to introduce children to the joy of reading and the magic of wordplay. So much so that the National Education Association (NEA) annually designates Suess’ birthday as “Read Across America Day,” an event that focuses on the need to instill a love of reading in children.
