Celebrate Reading with Target and Dr. Seuss To Win!

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!

    Our favorite Dr. Suess book is actually “The Lorax”. My daughter has a Lorax stuffed animal, a special green edition of the book, as well as the original cartoon movie on dvd. I showed her the preview for the new movie today, and she can’t wait!

    I love the Sneetches! It’s a cute story but also teaches kids not to judge others by appearance or exclude others. Love it!

    My fav will always be “Green Eggs & Ham” but my husband would read to our daughter everynite and they would do this dance and read “Hop on Pop”. I can still hear her laughing and jumping on him like the book. Thanks for the great memory.

    I love Green Eggs and Ham! My mom used to read it to me all the time. She even dyed eggs green for me. I am going to make a big deal of it this week with my students.
