Celebrate Dr Seuss’s Birthday

From favorites such as Green Eggs and Ham to How the Grinch Stole Christmas, many Dr Seuss’s books are passed down from generation to generation. Dr Seuss lives in the hearts of so many people and so many of his books are read to our children from their teachers at school or right before they go to bed at night. So many wonderful memories have been and are created from his amazing books. Since Dr Seuss’s birthday is March 2nd here is a fun round up of ideas on how you can celebrate Dr Seuss’s birthday.
