Win Tickets to Dr. Seuss’ Birthday Celebration

| February 23, 2013 | 85 Comments

“Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.” And there was no one quite like Dr. Seuss!

Fairytale Town will mark the beloved author and illustrator’s birthday with a read-aloud and Seuss-themed hands-on activities on Saturday, March 2 from 11 am to 3 pm, at their annual Dr. Seuss’ Birthday Celebration!

This happens to be one of our favorite events of the year! This photo is from last year’s Dr. Seuss celebration at Fairytale Town. My kids had a ball making their own striped hats!

“Green Eggs and Ham,” “Fox in Sox,” “Hop on Pop” and more of Dr. Seuss’ celebrated books will be read-aloud from the Mother Goose Stage throughout the program. Featured readers include Sacramento’s vice mayor Angelique Ashby; Sacramento city council members Darrell Fong, Kevin McCarty and Jay Schenirer; Mix 96’s Jennifer Wood; and News 10’s Mellisa Paul.

There will also be a variety of Seuss-inspired hands-on activities for children to create and take home as souvenirs. Activities include making “Cat in the Hat” hats, creating rhyming flip charts and planting “truffula” trees.

Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Seuss Geisel on March 2, 1904 in Springfield, Massachusetts. He is the author and illustrator of 44 books for children, including “The Cat in the Hat,” “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and “Oh, The Places You’ll Go!” His birthday is also celebrated as Read Across America Day, organized by the National Education Association to promote reading.

    There are many things which family members can do outdoors which are fun and which can involve everyone. Something which adults and children can enjoy might be racquet type sports. This can include tennis or badminton. If there are four family members who enjoy these sports, you can have a great doubles match. It’s fun and great exercise.”`
