Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss & National Read Across America

As a child, Dr. Seuss was one of my favorite authors. And today, I still have him high on my list. Theodor Seuss Geisel had a gift of making reading fun. Kids of all ages enjoy his books. His imagination was nothing short of genius.

I found this photo from when Cody was in Kindergarten for Read Across America Day. And the funny thing is, he will be dressing up as the Cat in the Hat this coming Monday, too (he gets extra credit for it).

Read Across America - Dr. Seuss, Cat in the Hat

Cody started reading around the age of two, and it was Dr. Seuss books he learned to read to… and would listen to me read for hours, if it was a Dr. Seuss book.


My favorite Dr. Seuss book is “Fox in Socks” because it is so much fun to read aloud. Even if I do say so myself, I can read this book very fast, and not mess up. I’ve been told it’s quite impressive. 🙂

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss and in celebration of Read Across America Day, I’ll be reading my favorite Dr. Seuss book to my son.

Look, sir.  Look, sir.  Mr. Knox, sir.
Let's do tricks with bricks and blocks, sir.
Let's do tricks with chicks and clocks, sir...
