March 2, 2011 is the 107th anniversary of the birth of Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known to the world as Dr. Seuss. In honor of Dr. Seuss the National Education Association has adopted March 2nd as the annual date for Read Across America.
Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate by bringing together kids, teens, and books. Seussville has guides and activities to celebrate reading with young people.
Here are some of my favorite Dr. Seuss quotes:
"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose."
"Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So... get on your way."
"Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you. "
