Did you know that Dr. Seuss's birthday is fast approaching? Born Theodore Seuss Geisel, Dr. Seuss was born on March 2nd, 1904. On the evening of March 2nd, this year, Random House and the National Education Association (NEA) want you to participate in the second annual Read Across America event and read to a child.
Dr. Seuss' funny rhymes do more than just entertain. They help kids develop a skill called Phonological Awareness; which means that kids learn to recognize and play with the sounds contained in words. Rhymes are lots of fun, but they also develop language and reading skills!
