Tip Your Cat Top Hats to Dr. Seuss
Millions of children have discovered the joy of reading through the works of Dr. Seuss. Stories like The Cat in the Hat are cherished the world over for their charming rhymes, imaginative illustrations, and most importantly, their accessibility to beginning readers. For many kids, a Dr. Seuss story is the first book they ever read on their own. It's no wonder then that Dr. Seuss's birthday has become a day to celebrate all things Seuss and to ignite a passion for reading in the latest generation of kids. On March 2, or the nearest school day, you'll find events across the country in honor of Dr. Seuss's beloved children's stories. At libraries, schools, and community centers, children and their parents and teachers dress up as their favorite Seuss characters, read Dr. Seuss stories, and create Seuss-inspired arts and crafts. These Dr. Seuss parties aren't just a lot of fun, they can instill a life-long love of reading, writing, and creativity in the children who participate.
It's a Seuss celebration!
With Seuss plates and Seuss cups.
There's Seuss decorations,
Seuss napkins and mugs.
Children are there, making Seuss crafts,
Writing Seuss poems and having Seuss laughs.
Then the teacher says, "Hush!"
"Gather 'round children, here."
"It is almost time. The time is quite near."
So the children go 'round.
They all sit there rapt
As the teacher reveals
Thirty-six Dr. Seuss hats.
Dr. Seuss hats, just like the Cat's!
