The Birthday of Dr. Suess!

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss! Well, not quite yet and not quite today - but planning ahead for your library activities is always a great idea! March 2nd is Dr. Suess's birthday!  Will you you party in a box, will you  party with a fox? Will you party here or there, will you party anywhere?  =)

Check out a few of our favorite Seuss works to help you get in the party spirit.

The Cat in the Hat - Two children sitting at home on a rainy day are visited by the cat in the hat who shows them some tricks and games. Classic!

Horton Hears a Who - A city of Whos on a speck of dust are threatened with destruction until the smallest Who of all helps convince Horton's friends that Whos really exist.

The Lorax - The Lorax comes to speak for the trees that are being cut down because of greed.

My Many Colored Days - This rhyming story describes each day in terms of a particular color which in turn is associated with specific emotions.
Oh, The Places You'll Go - Advice in rhyme for proceeding in life; weathering fear, loneliness, and confusion; and being in charge of your actions.
