Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

Thursday, March 2nd Join us as we celebrate Dr. Seuss’s Read across America 2017!

During this month we will enjoy reading various Dr. Seuss books and participating in extension activities. Your children will experience the joys of wonder, possibility, exploration and discovery found in his books.

Little-Known Facts about Dr. SeussGreen_Eggs_and_Ham.jpg

  • He wrote Green Eggs and Ham on a dare. Ted Geisel’s publisher bet that Geisel couldn’t write a book using only 50 different words. In an effort to make learning to read more exciting for kids, he wrote a silly tale about a picky eater (a common complaint of many parents) and a fellow who won’t take “No” for an answer. The result? Green Eggs and Ham.
  • He was not a doctor. He added the title “doctor” before Seuss (his mother’s maiden name) while in college to lend credibility to his writings and characters, and in reaction to his father’s wish that his son would get a doctorate.

Thursday, March 9th Pediatric Dentistry of Ft. Myers will be here at 10:00am to educate our children about caring for our teeth!dr.seuss.jpg
