Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss

Today is Dr. Seuss Reading Day. Pick up a book.

I had a giant collection of Dr. Seuss books when I was a kid. The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, The Sneetches. I read and reread and reread them until I had some of them completely memorized. Those books taught me how to read.

Today is Dr. Seuss’s birthday, otherwise known as National Read Across America Day, or, in North Texas, Dr. Seuss Reading Day spearheaded by United Way of Metropolitan Dallas. Volunteers are reading to students in more than 700 classrooms today throughout North Texas. If you can’t volunteer, donate a book or two. If you don’t have a book to donate, go buy a donated book and start reading.
