Celebrate Seuss

Friday we celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Theodor Seuss Geisel wrote some of the most memorable titles on our children’s bookshelf.  The rhythm of the text and the bright, unique illustrations made each book fun to read and ever more fun to listen to.  When I found out I was pregnant I began collecting board books for our nursery library.  “The Foot Book” quickly became a favorite of mine and I read it to my unborn child almost every night.

This Friday is a great chance to remind our children that one man, Theodor Seuss Geisel, was willing to think outside of the box and create his own world full of Mr. Brown’s sounds and Wockets galore! Children can be super creative and they need to know that a man who was raised by hard-working, blue-collar parents went to college and then created the amazing world where cats wear hats and eggs can be green.

If you celebrate would you mind sharing some pictures on our Facebook page or leaving comments on this post?  We’d love to hear about what you end up doing and how your kids responded 😮

To help you get started here are some great resources:

One of my favorite websites is “A to Z Teacher Stuff“…they think like a teacher and keep everything simple and easy to find. Click Here to see activities listed by book. If you have a Dr. Seuss book on your shelf, use this site to find activities to support its theme.

If your kids like to play games on-line, you’ll both love exploring the world of Seussville. Complete with authentic Seuss drawings and learning games, this site will keep adults and kids involved and having fun!

Click Here to print out cards that can be cut apart and have fun matching characters and titles from Dr. Seuss.

I hope you have an awesome week filled with creativity, dreaming and lots of reading! You are wonderful! Keep up the great work and remember – what you do everyday matters!
