Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Dress your fox in socks, and let loose Thing 1 and Thing 2! Today is the 106th anniversary of the birth of beloved children’s book author, Theodor Geisel. You may know him better as Dr. Seuss.

In celebration of Dr. Seuss’s work, today is the 12th annual Read Across America Day. Organized by the National Education Association, Read Across America Day is meant to celebrate and promote to children the joys of reading and books. Dr. Seuss’s books are apt cornerstones of this event, as they encourage both learning and imagination in children.

If you have kids, crack open a classic Dr. Seuss (or any book) with them before bedtime. Even if you don’t have kids, put down your boring grown-up reading material and relive your childhood by rereading your favorite children’s book today. And if so inclined, feel free to feast on some green eggs and ham.
