Read Across America Day is held on the birth anniversary of one of the most famous children's writers of all times--Dr. Seuss. Seuss, whose real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel, died in 1991. He would have been 112 years old!
Parents and teachers how want to keep children reading all year long, should check out the Read Across America calendar, click here.
As mentioned above, Seuss died in 1991, but a previously unpublished book was discovered and published last year: What Pet Should I Get? [JP SEU, also J AB/CD SEU]. The book has a guide that was created for teachers in which they can
find ideas for classroom-based activities and school-wide events that take advantage of students’ affinity for animals and Dr. Seuss’s talent for creating fantastic creatures.
A Dr. Seuss Museum, in Springfield, MA where Seuss was born, will be opening later this year. The Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden is already open at the Springfield Museums. Is there road trip in your future?
