Dr. Seuss Day Two

February 27

Sunday, February 27 

You can find magicwherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book.”  Dr. Seuss said it best, there’s no need to contest. We’ll read, learn, and play, shout, “hip hip-hooray!” In honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday, we are celebrating all weekend long with classic stories, whacky activities, and special appearances by some of your favorite characters! 

Play Purpose: abstract art exploration, whole body movement, literacy and word play, mapping sounds to print, creativity, listening and following directions.

Smart Art (on-going):   

  • Tissued Truffula Trees > We’re looking to Dr. Suess’s illustration of Truffula Trees as inspiration as we recreate and interpret.  
  • Brightening Our World Through Color > As Dr. Seuss would do, we are going to explore bright colors and color mixing to find what colors make others brighter! 

Sensational Story Time in the Traveling Exhibit (11 AM & 2:30 PM): The Lorax >  “’Mister!’ He said with a sawdusty sneeze, ‘I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees.’ The Lorax is the original eco-warrior and his message still rings loud today in this fable about the dangers of destroying our forests, told in the trademark rhyme of the irrepressible Dr. Seuss. 

Grown-up Tip: Dr. Seuss books are more than just silly rhymes – they support creativity and allow children to have fun with language. Playing with words – even nonsense words—brings an awareness, focus, and fun for readers of all ages. It’s hard not to have fun and smile while reading a Dr. Seuss book!
