March is a very special month, as it celebrates one of America’s most widely known children’s writer, Dr. Seuss. PBS SoCaL Education is celebrating all month long! We kicked off our festivities last week with a visit to the La Habra Children’s Museum for some Dr. Seuss readings, screenings and poem-writing. Even the La Habra police and fire department stopped by to participate by reading to kids at the Museum. Then we headed to the Boys and Girls Club of Tustin for some crafts and a special birthday cake in honor of the beloved author!
You can join the celebration by grabbing a book like "Bartholomew and the Oobleck" or "Oh, the Places You'll Go" and encouraging your little ones to participate in Read Across America Day. Then you can watch the new special episodes of The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! and make your own Cat in the Hat Masks or a Horton Hears a Who Headpiece. Find more reading resources with PBS Parents, including age-appropriate reading lists and reading activities. And what better way to commorate this very special day than with a poem:
Hip Hip Hooray!
It’s Dr. Seuss’ special day
And we are celebrating in a special way.
With books and poems,
Gaak and games,
We’re even making hats
And crazy photo frames.
So celebrate with us,
We will have so much fun!
His birthday may be over
But the celebration has only begun!
How are you celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday?
