Celebrate Dr. Seuss' Birthday on March 2

Today, March 2, is the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss. Whether you have an assortment of Dr. Seuss books at home or head to the library, be sure to delve into one his whimsical stories today. My personal favorite is Yertle the Turtle because I remember my mom reading it to me as a child. I loved how Yertle kept climbing on the other turtles so he could see across the land, but later learned that you shouldn't be so selfish that you put yourself above (literally and figuratively) above others.

Little K (at right) loves that story too, but is most excited about reading One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish to the pre-kindergarten class at school today. Too cute! 

My husband's favorite Dr. Seuss book is The Lorax, which Little K has reminded me is also a movie that debuts today. Check out the trailer and find a local movie theater that is showing this fun flick today. It's a wonderful tale that encourages kids to take care of the earth, which of course is also a great read for Earth Day on April 22.

Have a Seussical day. Until the next nap time...
