Happy Dr. Seuss Day!
Some people call it Read Across America Day, but only if you go to a Public School. (It’s the governments way of trying to get people to read more.) We’re celebrating March 2nd as the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel. He wrote and illustrated 46 children’s books, many of which sit on our home bookshelf. If you’re not sure which Seuss books to read for which age level, I’ve included age appropriate lists below and some fun activities to follow. There’s some really great ideas from some fellow bloggers/teachers/homeschoolers. I hope to use a few.
