Seussville, Dr. Seuss’s Birthday, Cupcakes & More: How To Celebrate 107 Years!

Thanks to Dr. Seuss, also known as Theodor Seuss Geisel,  thousands of children have been entertained and educated in a fun, humorous and exciting manner. 107 years ago, Geisel made a huge contribution to teaching our children to read, when he introduced “The Cat in the Hat.” He wrote this book, because he worried that boring primers weren’t giving children what they needed and decided to add a little twist by adding rhyming words and repetition.

Dr. Seuss’s ABC is a huge favorite in our home and my daughter can recite it page for page. Thanks to the fun format, it has helped even my youngest memorize letters and sounds.

This Wednesday, parents, teachers and children will celebrate 107 years of Dr. Seuss. We’ve put together some fun activities and ideas for you to enjoy with your family.
