  • Starting March 2, 1998, 
    educators, students, and all celebrate!
     
    Dr. Seuss was born on this day,
    and a group of teachers thought of a way,
    to celebrate reading in all of their classes
    with sing-a-longs, plays, and fun with the masses.
     
    From Orlando to Anchorage, Santa Fe to St. Lou,
    parents, and teachers, and babysitters, too,
    read with their charges, in speckled cravats,
    as star-bellied sneeches, and, of course, cats in hats.
