Let's all STOP and Read about loraxes and cats in hats and elephants named Horton!

Posted by Karen Meyer on Feb 28th 2022

  A tall black cat in white gloves and a red and white striped top hat is pulling up to your house in a small sports car, what should you do? A Lorax is going door to door in your neighborhood collecting signatures on a petition to save the trees. You know an elephant named Horton and that a boy named Sam-I-Am has a friend who does not eat green eggs and ham in a dish or with a fish, here or there or anywhere! Everyone knows about Grinches and Whos and Things 1 and 2 … And we know these odd and seemingly disconnected things because of a magical man by the name of Theodore Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss!

On Wednesday, March 2, children all over the United States will celebrate Read Across America Day with book parties and character parades, guest readers and special art projects, and lots of Dr. Seuss books. Theodore Geisel grew up in Springfield, MA where he lived with his parents and sister, Marne. His mother would chant rhymes from her childhood to Ted and Marne at bedtime and Dr. Seuss said he learned to rhyme from his mother. Today, the hometown hero is honored with a garden at the Springfield Library and Museum that displays bronze sculptures of some of the most famous characters from his books: The Grinch, Thidwick, Horton, The Lorax, and Yertle .

Celebrate the magical Dr. Seuss with your family! Go to the local library and take out some of his books to share as a family, watch a video of one of his books, have green eggs and ham for dinner, or be together as a family and talk about all “the places you‘ll go”. Check out the games, videos, and stories at www.seussville.com or check out one of these books from your local public library.


Whatever you do to celebrate Dr. Seuss, be sure it also celebrates reading and books. Reading to your children every day is the best gift you can give them!

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”
Dr. Seuss,
I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!
