Dr. Seuss and the Cat in the Hat Presents NEA Read Across America Day

The National Education Association is building a nation of readers through its signature program, NEA’s Read Across America.  One of the programs being celebrated is the famous Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss. The association in its 16th year,is a full year-round program focusing on motivating children and teens to read through events, partnerships, and reading resources. So without further ado let's get reading.  You are never to old to read to your children and they may just get something from it and enjoy the experience.  Theodor Seuss Geisel would have turned 109 on March 2 this year. This cherished children’s authors birthday will be celebrated by the one and only ambassador of READ ACROSS AMERICA The cat in the hat himself.  Pick up a book and go ahead no hesitation and read to your child. 

Dr. Seuss wrote many favorite characters that are loved though out his life time and well after his death.  

  You have the mischievous Thing 1 and Thing 2.  They have fun with the Cat in the Hat and making a mess then cleaning it up.  Any child will have fun with this story.

Then you can read Green Eggs and Ham which is a classic favorite.  Would you eat Green eggs and Ham.  I think Sam did at the end he realized they were not as bad as he thought and actually liked them.

Or you can read the Lorax.  A lesson in learning to preserve the land and the trees and being kind to nature.  And one should realize that money does not make one happy it is family and friends.  

But no matter what story you read to your child, the important thing is to read to them.  Dr. Seuss's imaginative stories and characters will bring fun and enjoyment to any child's life.  And you may also get something out of the experience as well.
