Happy birthday, Dr. Seuss.


Tomorrow is Dr. Seuss’ birthday.

The NEA initiated Read Across America to mark the occasion.

This is my first year that I can’t celebrate it with my students.

Kindergarten and first graders and I would make stove pipe Cat in the Hat hats.

And I got to share my favorite Dr. Seuss book. His last. Hooray for Diffendoofer Day.

I send this out to all of my students and colleagues.

“All schools for miles and miles around
Must take a special test,
To see who’s learning such and such –
To see which school’s the best.
If our small school does not do well,
Then it will be torn down,
And you will have to go to school
In dreary Flobbertown.”

    An annual event is celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday with the NEA sponsored Read Across America. Back when I was teaching we celebrated in the art room with the construction of hats inspired by The Cat in the Hat and the reading of Hooray for Diffendoofer Day, Dr. Seuss’ final book, published posthumously
