The library is having four special programs to celebrate Seuss’ birthday (and mine!) March 2.
There is a special wacky Preschool Storytime from 10:00 to 10:45 for children ages 3-5 in the Story Zone. I will read some of my favorite Dr. Seuss books, and we’ll do some fun activities.
At 4:00 in the Story Zone, I will be reading some of his books for an older audience as we have a special After School program for children in grades K through 3. There will be activities there as well as some books that make me laugh and tie my tongue in a knot.
At 6:30 in the Story Zone will be Sing, Move and Learn. This program for 3-5 year olds will be about silly stories Dr. Seuss would have liked and can be registered for at ERC 785.357.5171.
The group from Sing, Move and Learn will march to the Marvin Auditorium at 7:00 where you can join them and other friends of Dr. Seuss for a Party to celebrate reading. Come for games and crafts until 7:30. (Maybe you can sing happy birthday to me too?)
Dr. Seuss has created some of my all-time favorite book characters – after all big-hearted Horton Hatches an Egg, staying faithful 100 percent, and saves Whoville.
The Cat in the Hat causes trouble while mom is out, and Poor Bartholomew must knock off his hat, or they might knock off his head.
That Sam I Am seems like a pest at first, but I come to like him as well as Green Eggs and Ham.
The Lorax will protect my beautiful trees. And at the end the Grinch isn’t such a bad guy.
Have you read about Thidwick the moose and his troubles? Or listened to the noises of Gerald McBoing Boing? Who are your favorite Dr. Seuss’ characters? Leave your comment below or come tell me in person at our Read Across American event, celebrating Seuss’ birthday, March 2.
Many of our Seuss books are published en espanõl too.
