Celebrating Dr. Seuss in preschool


CelebratingI may be going out on a limb here, but I imagine almost EVERYONE has a favorite Dr. Seuss story that they remember growing up. My personal favorite Dr. Seuss book is … “Green Eggs and Ham” … hands down! I could recite it by heart! For my children, it’s “The Cat in the Hat“.

We are coming up on March 3rd and NEA’S Read Across America Day.  Read Across America takes place each year on or near March 2 … and schools and libraries across the country participate by bringing children and books together. This year’s theme is “Get ready to grab your hat and read with the Cat in the Hat“!  How will YOU celebrate?


Looking for some fun Seuss-related activities to go along with your reading?

We have a few Dr. Seuss favorite activities that we have done .. such as:
