Storytime Goes Seuss!
March 07, 2012
The children clapped their hands, and their smiles told us they were ready to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday with our first book, Green Eggs and Ham, during storytime at Red Bridge on the first day of March. It was fun watching some of the boys, girls, and parents verbally follow the story as it was being read. Of course, we had to read The Cat in the Hat, another favorite story of Dr. Seuss. At the end of the story, there is a question that is asked, "Would you tell your mother?" True to the values of many of the families at Red Bridge, the answer was "Yes, we would tell our mother."
Following the stories, the children made a Cat in the Hat puppet and a red fan from their placemat. Headquarters also made bookmarks for Dr. Seuss's celebration. The following quote by Dr. Seuss was shared. "The more that you read, the more things that you know, the more that you learn, the more places you will go." We then had our drawing for Dr. Seuss's book Lorax. After which, we sang "Happy Birthday" to Dr. Seuss, and the children enjoyed a little treat. As the families left the celebration, the children were given a "Read Across America Program" certificate.
