Saturday, March 2 marks Dr. Seuss's birthday. This iconic member of children's literature has become a treasured part of many families story times. How will your family celebrate this Saturday? Here are a few suggestions.
1. Read a everyone's favorite Dr. Seuss book. Whether you like Hop on Pop or Horton Hears a Who, gather everyone around and read a few of your favorites.
2. Make a Dr. Seuss themed hat. We all know the iconic Dr. Seuss hat. This year marks the 75th anniversary of the classic The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins . Grab some red and white construction paper, staples and some glue to make your hat. Who will wear it all day?
3. Attend a Dr. Seuss celebration. In the Chicago area, Anderson Bookshops, in Naperville and Downers Grove, will host a Hats Off To Dr. Seuss party at 11 am on March 2. The party includes a story time and kids are encouraged to wear a hat. Does your local library or bookstore have a celebration?
4. Start your day with green eggs and ham. Sam may not like green eggs and ham, but I bet your kids would get a kick out of a colored breakfast for Dr. Seuss. A little food coloring can bring a little levity to your weekend.
