Read Across America
March 2, 2012 by staff
Read Across America, The beloved author of children’s books and wacky rhyming genius left us an abundance of favorite books and cartoons. But let you think the creator of “The Cat in the Hat,” “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and “Green Eggs and Ham” is fading in popularity, think again.
To honor what would have been his 108 birthday, a number of big events are planned for March 2. For one, Random House and the National Education Association are urging people to take part in the annual Read Across America event and read to a child.
Dr. Seuss is not only fun for all ages, but his work is considered an excellent tool for helping kids develop a love of reading and learning, among other benefits.
“Also, his use of rhyme makes his books an effective tool for teaching young children the basic skills they need to be successful,” states the website Seussville.com . “When we celebrate Dr. Seuss and reading, we send a clear message to America’s children that reading is fun and important.”

Also today is the debut of the film version of Seuss’ 1971 book, “The Lorax,” a 94-minute, 3D animated film featuring the voice of Danny DeVito as the Lorax.
Also happening in the world of Dr. Seuss is the “Cat in the Hat” TV show and the Seuss estate is doing a “To Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street” 75th-anniversary mall tour.
