Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

45 million people are expected to participate in the NEA's Read Across America program in 2010. The National Education Association promotes an annual Read Across America program in celebration of children's literacy on March 2nd, the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Many schools hold "read-ins" or pajama storytimes to promote literacy. In honor of Dr. Seuss and Read Across America, I'm sharing two of my favorite Dr. Seuss books:

Tells, in verse, what happens when all ninety-nine zillion nine trillion and three creatures in the world go to sleep.

A boy imagines the rare and wonderful fish he might catch in McElligot's pool.

Dr Seuss Day seems like such a good idea! And I didn't know these 2 books so thanks for highlighting them. My favourite is probably Oh the places you'll go, though my youngest adores There's a wocket in my pocket.
