I have always loved Dr. Seuss books and luckily my children love them too! We read Dr. Seuss books all throughout the year, but during Read Across America Week we especially love to read them and celebrate the birthday of a great author.
There are so many of his books that we could read and so many great Dr. Seuss inspired ideas out there that we could never do it all in a week. So, I picked a few of our favorite ideas and thought I would share what I found with you! I hope you and your children enjoy celebrating the fun, wacky world of Dr. Seuss!
