Who doesn’t have a childhood filled with Dr. Seuss books? They’re so great and have good morals. My favorites were One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, The Foot Book, and Green Eggs and Ham. I love that every generation loves him! They’re TV shows, movies (The Grinch is my favorite), and his books are still printing.
Theodor Seuss Geisel was born March 2, 1904 which makes this Friday his 108th Birthday! Many classrooms in American have some sort of read-a-thon or Dr. Seuss celebration on his birthday. There is also a Read Across America Campaign that is marking this Friday evening as a time to sit down with your child (or any child) and read to them.
I hope you’re always reading to your children. I’ve wanted to make it a daily habit, but I haven’t been quite that good so I’ll work on it. But you can use your own library or your local library to find books that are great for kids of all ages! Even though my daughter is only 1 and doesn’t understand the stories, she loves books! She loves opening them, turning the pages, and looking at the pictures. I hope she keeps this up for the rest of her life!
I thought it would be fun to post some fun things you can do with your kids to celebrate Dr. Seuss!
You can make a Thing 1 and Thing 2 handprint.
I love this Cat and the Hat Jello! Fun and yummy!
You can make a Cat and the Hat hat out of paper or fabric.
Or make these adorable Thing 1 and Thing 2 cupcakes!
And here’s a list of some great ideas to do with the younger kids and how to help them explore with Dr. Seuss books.
And finally a list of Dr. Seuss books if you need a reference found at Suessville.
All of the pictures I found on Pinterest which you can find again on my We Like to Learn as We Go! board. And don’t forget to read with your kids!
What’s your favorite Dr. Seuss book? I know you have one…
