Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss, would have been 107-years-old tomorrow, Wednesday, March 2. In honor of the man who gave us The Cat in the Hat and many other childhood favorites, March 2 is also Read Across America Day, a year-round reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading.
Here are ways to celebrate Dr. Seuss and Read Across America Day:
- Eat green eggs and ham for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
- Take the Read Across America Pledge.
- Make and wear a Cat in the Hat hat.
- Watch the 2-hour marathon of the PBS series The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That .
