Celebrate Reading with Target and Dr. Seuss To Win!

by Guest Contributor

Are you excited to see the new movie adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax? We absolutely love Dr. Seuss in in our house and I for one am anxiously awaiting the newest movie. Of course movies are fun but nothing compares to the books. Our current favorite is the original Cat in the Hat book. In fact my 3 year old can recite it from memory. It’s so fun to watch him read and love some of my old favorites.

The folks at Target are also excited about Dr. Seuss and reading! This Saturday, Target stores are hosting free in-store reading events in celebration of the National Education Association’s (NEA’s) Read Across America program.

Each event will include a reading nook inspired by Dr. Seuss’ “The Lorax,” a reusable Target bag filled with activities for children, readings by Target team members, and more. The event will be from 9-11am this Saturday, February 25th!

Read Across America is also encouraging families to read together on (or around) March 2nd to celebrate the birthday of our beloved Dr. Seuss.

Find your local Target here and check out this exciting event on Saturday!

Enter to win One of Five Prize Packs

If you can’t make it to your local Target this Saturday, you also have a chance to win one of five price packs including    Dr. Seuss books and one reusable Target bag right here on 5 minutes for Mom! To enter the contest, Just share your favorite Dr. Seuss book in the comments to enter! 

This giveaway will end February 26th and winners will be announced in our weekly Around the Blogosphere post.

Target provided me with these giveaway packages to share with my readers at no cost.
