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.
