Why Do Readers Everywhere Love March 2nd?

by Guest Blogger M.O.M.

Because March 2nd is the birthday of ┬áTheodor Seuss Geisel, better known to countless readers as Dr. Seuss. Dr. Seuss was a writer and cartoonist who is best known as the author of beloved children’s books. His books contain wacky characters, make use of rhyme and are fun to read. His gift at writing for the young provided entertaining and accessible books for the younger reader. His clever use of language begs to be read out loud and watching the faces of young listeners enthralled in the humor and silliness, hides the craft of what Dr. Seuss created.

Dr. Seuss’s birthday is celebrated across the United States with Read Across America which motivates and encourages children to read and be read to. And in honor of this special day many schools encourage their students to come to school in their pajamas so that they can read while comfy and cozy.
