Read Across America and Dr. Seuss Week

Hats off to reading! We're celebrating the Read Across America Day, which falls on the birthday of one of America's most beloved authors- Theodor Seuss Geisel, who wrote children's books under the pen name Dr. Seuss. This marks his 113th birthday. What better way to celebrate his legacy and pay homage to his classic book "The Cat in the Hat" than to wear the signature red and white hat? The week was filled with fun events surrounding around reading and the life of Dr. Seuss.

Dr. Seuss's books have sold over 600 million copies, and have been translated into more than 20 languages! Dr. Seuss worked as an illustrator for advertising campaigns and as a political cartoonist for a New York newspaper. During the second World War, he worked as an animator for the US Army, where he produced several short films. He was a perfectionist, known to discard up to 95% of his material before settling on a theme for a new book.
