On March 2nd, one of the most beloved children’s authors of all time, is celebrated on his birthday. Not only does this day commemorate Dr. Seuss’s birthday, it also goes hand in hand with the National Education Association’s “Read Across America” Day. It is a wonderful opportunity to take some time out of our day and read to our children.
Taking time to read to your children shows our kids that not only is reading important, but it’s fun too! Along with reading your favorite Dr. Seuss books, celebrate the day by going to a fun event or even doing some fun activities at home.
Check out some fun ideas below and enjoy the day celebrating all things Dr. Seuss!
