March 2nd is Dr. Seuss’s birthday and each year the NEA (National Education Association) celebrates Read Across America Day in his honor. What is your favorite Dr. Seuss book? Ours is The Sleep Book, while we don’t read it every night, it comes out often.
As this is not a major holiday, events are usually announced only a couple weeks in advance. We’ll add 2020 dates here as they come in. In the meantime, the Twin Cities usually joins the fun at these locations:
Read Across America Day Events:
- Red Balloon Bookshop • The Red Balloon traditionally celebrates with a story time or other Seuss-themed event. Stay tuned for 2020 updates.
- Local Library Branches • We can generally count on a few libraries to host a story time or celebration. Stay tuned. We’ll add events as they come in.
- Barnes & Noble Stores • Barnes & Noble stores often host a Seuss-themed storytime on March 2nd or the nearest Saturday.
