Dr. Seuss’ Read Across America Day is only 24 days away – do you know where your books are? It’s always held on the first Monday in March and it just so happens that this year it’s on Monday, March 2, which is actually Dr. Seuss’s birthday!
Dr. Seuss is one of the most beloved children’s authors around the world. Children everywhere love to read Dr. Seuss. As a child my mom used to read Dr. Seuss books to me and I followed the tradition and read them to my children and they’ll read them to their children and so on, and so on, and so on…
If you have a lot of children in your neighborhood a great idea is to throw a Read Across America party! Get all the children together and use the theme of Cat In The Hat to decorate with props and costumes. Have the children play games and just let them have fun. When all the games are done, have all the children sit around the room while a mother or father reads aloud from a Dr. Seuss book. Let them feel like they’re part of it by having them repeat special phrases aloud with you.
HalloweenExpress.com can help with all your party needs. Have all the children wear Cat In The Hat Deluxe Hats as they come in the house. The mother or father who reads to them can add fun to the night by dressing in a Cat In The Hat adult costume. The children will love it!!
Dr. Seuss understood how important it is that children love to read. Now we can do our part by supporting literacy in our own community!
