Dr. Seuss’s Birthday

Dr. Seuss’s birthday falls on 2 March; and because he is a huge contributor to children’s literature, his birthday is often celebrated in libraries.

This year, I worked with a colleague to plan and facilitate Dr. Seuss’s Birthday Party. It was so much fun! I had a blast planning it, but it was even better to see the children and their families enjoying the activities and games we had.
