Today, March 2nd, we celebrate Theodor Seuss Geisel’s birthday. Dr. Seuss, his pen name, wrote books that were fun and fantastical as well as those that offered poignant themes buried in entertaining story lines.
As one of the most widely celebrated and loved names in children’s literature, it’s no wonder his birthday also marks the National Read Across America Day.
To celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday and Read Across America Day, pick up a book and read to yourself or to someone else.
And for closing thoughts, a few more of his quotes;
