Are you as excited as we are??

This Friday, March 2nd, is Theodor Seuss Geisel’s Birthday AND ALSO our annual National Read Across America Day!

All year long our family enjoys Dr. Seuss books…they are truly our favorites!  Today we pulled out all the Dr. Seuss books we own and plan to practice reading all week long with them.  The kids are also running around singing Mister Cooper’s “Dr. Seuss is on the Loose!” (if you go to his sing-alongs, you surely know this one, too!).  We have learned and been inspired through Dr. Seuss’ wacky and whimsical rhymes…and are looking forward to celebrating!

In the Sacramento area, Fairytale Town, Barnes & Noble, and the Sacramento Public Library are holding some very fun events in Dr. Seuss’ honor!

Here’s the roundup:
