Dr Seuss’s birthday is March 2.  He was born in 1904 so he would be 117 years old! To celebrate his birthday, wear something wacky (clothes that don’t match, are backwards, or inside out).  Do you know what his best selling book is of all time?  It’s Green Eggs and Ham with nearly 200 million copies sold! In his lifetime Dr. Seuss wrote over 60 books.  In celebration of his life, take time to read one of his books this week. Here are some activities you can enjoy.
