Celebrate Seuss

March is the birthday month of children's author Dr. Seuss. To extend your family's affection for his wonderful books — and encourage reading — try these offbeat celebration ideas.
 

Learning Benefits

Start the day with a Seuss-errific breakfast of green eggs and ham (simply add a drop of food coloring before cooking).

 

Act out scenes from your favorite Seuss book. A great choice today: Happy Birthday to You!

 

Explore the classics in new ways — rent Horton Hears a Who, voiced by Jim Carrey and Steve Carell; play the The Cat in the Hat — I Can Do That! board game; or check out LeapFrog's new Green Eggs and Ham TAG book.

 

Make up your own silly rhymes in the spirit of the books based on the names of family members, friends, or characters you invent.

 

Visit seussville.com — a site exploding with Seuss's zany characters. You can play silly games, print fun activities and coloring pages, create an animated story, and more.
