Play games and learn more about Dr. Seuss at

March 2nd is Dr. Seuss’s birthday and the NEA (National Education Association) has declared March 3rd – Read Across America Day.  Your kids can sign a pledge at their website if they want to do that.  If you would like to learn more about Dr. Seuss or his books or just play some games, visit Seussville. (Just a note, this is one of those instantly noisy websites.  You might not want to open it right after you get the baby to sleep.)  You can celebrate all things Seuss and reading at several places around town this weekend and Monday.  Did I miss any?  Let us know.

Reading Celebration
Saturday, March 1, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

All the Creative Kidstuff locations will be hosting a birthday party for Dr. Seuss that includes treats and crafts fun for the family.  The will also be having a drawing for tickets to see The Cat in the Hat at The Children’s Theater Company later this spring.  We recently attended an event at Creative Kidstuff for The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  The staff was friendly, it was not very crowded and all of my kids from the 2-year-old to the 8-year-old had a good time.  It’s hard not to walk out without spending money though.  It’s a toy store after all.

Besides Family Fun Twin Cities, I spend my 9 to 5 at a day job pursuing my weird passion for calendars and organizing things as a legal secretary. When I get home I spend my time with my four kids, 10, 6, 4 and 1. My amazing husband is both a full-time musician and full-time stay-at-home dad. Together we run a small radio empire — SiaNet Radio — playing, promoting and enjoying the wide variety of local music and art in the Twin Cities. I juggle all this while writing about exploring the Twin Cities with kids. I couldn’t be happier.
