Tomorrow 3/2/12 is Read Across America day and is also Dr. Seuss’s birthday! I am very excited! This year NEA (National Education Association ) is partnering with The Lorax bringing on a green theme wile also incorporating the importance of reading to children!
“You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.”
Visit Seussville to print activities as well as a certificate of participation! I will be reading the Lorax to Seth in the spirit of it all but you can also find which age groups each Dr. Seuss book is siuted for HERE so that you can add a few other books to your reading list!
My aunt will be coming down to see us tomorrow as well to also plant a tree to keep with The Lorax theme, keep it green and well we like nature so it gives us an excuse to plant something again!
