Today is the birthday of Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel), who would have been 115 today. It’s also the date designated by the National Education Association in the U.S. as National Read Across America Day. Most public schools (including the ones my kids attend) celebrated the holiday yesterday, since today is a Saturday, but libraries and bookstores across the country are holding events today to honor the legacy of Dr. Seuss and encourage kids to read more.
