Happy Brthday Dr. Seuss!

Today is Read Across America Day and to top it off, the movie Lorax hits the movie theaters (Catch the trailer, here! ) today on Dr. Seuss Birthday. Theodor (“Ted”) Seuss Geisel was born on March 2, 1904, in Springfield, Massachusetts. Kids and Adults alike all over the country are celebrating the impact of this great author and promoting the love of reading. Be sure to view the video below to hear and see actor/singer Justin Bieber read the book The Cat in the Hat. Also, check out NEA's School Tube Channel. This is the 15th Year that National Education Association has promoted their signature program of building a nation of readers. Here a link to NEA's Classroom Activity Guide for use in the classroom. PBS Kids have their own spot dedicated to The Cat in the Hat. If you're an iPad user or a classroom with iPads, check out the Free Rover app that I previously mentioned here. Happy Friday and Happy Reading!
