- Learn About the Man – Hopefully, your children are already familiar with Dr. Seuss classics such as Hop on Pop, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, and Oh, The Places You’ll Go. But do they know about the man behind the stories? Theodor Seuss Geisel was a very interesting character himself and your kids will enjoy reading more about him. Visit catinthehat.org to learn more about this author.
- Dr. Seuss Digital Book Apps – If you have tech-savvy kids who would rather interact with electronics than read a book, never fear! Ocean House Media has several Dr. Seuss digital book apps that your children can enjoy. These interactive book apps will entertain and educate!
- Buy a New Book – Read Across America day only comes around once a year. Why not treat your child to a new book in honor of the special occasion? Take a trip to your local bookstore and let him pick a book to buy. Or surprise him with a book you know he’s been wanting to read. While you’re at, get a book for yourself!
