Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

wpid-20150302_104239-1.jpgWe celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2 in the O.K. Corral.  Kids were invited to wear their pajamas and bring a blanket, pillow, and a favorite stuffed animal, along with their favorite books, Dr. Seuss or otherwise.  We spent the day enjoying some of Dr. Seuss’s best-loved books starting with The Cat in the Hat, of course. The kids made Cat in the Hat hats to wear for the day.

Between read alouds, we spread out our blankets and pillows all around the room, buddying up for some quiet reading time.  I suppose it was not really a Pinterest-worthy celebration.  But anytime you share great literature with kids, it’s a good day.
