Read Across America Day

Tuesday, March 1, 2011

It's that time of year again, time to gear up for NEA's Read Across America Day. On March 2, PBS KIDS is honoring the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel, more widely known as Dr. Seuss, with a two-hour marathon of THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT! PBS KIDS will celebrate Dr. Seuss' 107th birthday by rhyming along with the playful Cat during two brand new episodes, "Incredible Journey/Bamboozled," where the Cat introduces Nick and Sally to two incredible creatures, Salmon Sam and Zhu Zhu the panda, and "Teeny Weeny Adventure/I See Seeds," in which the Cat takes Nick and Sally on two "tiny" adventures.

Also joining in the celebration of Dr. Seuss is Reading Rockets, a national multimedia project that offers research-based and best-practice information on teaching kids to read and helping those who struggle. On the Reading Rockets: Read Across America pages you will find a video interview with Mrs. Seuss, classroom strategies to incorporate Dr. Seuss books into literacy-building activities, and a Lorax-themed family literacy bag encouraging hands-on fun and learning.

Also check out the video-enhanced activities for teachers on the PBS Teachers website and find activities by topic for even more fun!

Or, visit Seussville for printable activities, to learn about the author, and find lesson plans as well as the downloadable 2011 NEA's Read Across America activity booklet.

So which is your favorite Dr. Seuss book? I love Fox in Socks and Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now!  No wait, Horton Hears A Who. That's a fabulous tale. Or, I know, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. It's just isn't Christmas without that story. But I also love Hooray for Diffendoofer Day. With so many great classics, it's really hard to choose a favorite don't you think?  Go on, grab a book and get your Seuss on!

I think I always liked the one with the Sneetches and stars on their bellies.
