read across america

Specifically for Children of all ages; Grown-ups

Get ready to grab your hat and read with the Cat in the Hat for the 17th annual Read Across America Day! Join us as we make a Seuss-tacular birthday cake in the art studio, read classic Dr. Seuss stories in each exhibit, and take photos with some beloved Seuss characters. Special activities will take place throughout the day including:

  • Cooking with the Cat in the Hat!
  • Good to Go Games in each exhibit including Cat, Cat, Hat & Who’s Hat is That
  • Seussville “Obstacle” Course
  • And so much more!

Play Partner: Pretendgineers and Brain Builders, our experienced stage staff of trained early childhood and child development educators, grown-ups

Grown-up Tip:: Letters and words are here, there, and everywhere! Dr. Seuss was a master of words, real and imagined. When you’re driving with your child along a familiar route, read the signs aloud. Make your next trip to the grocery store an interactive one—read the names of food items aloud with your child. Make up new ones!
