March 2nd is Dr. Seuss's birthday! Theodor Seuss Geisel was born on March 2, 1904, in Springfield, Massachusetts. He published his first children's book, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, under the name of Dr. Seuss in 1937. Next came a string of best sellers, including The Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham. His rhymes and characters are beloved by generations.

Kindergarten and first grade scholars of the Dr. Seuss Academy joined millions of their peers across the country to celebrate his birthday and the eighteenth annual National Education Association's (NEA) Read Across America Day on March 2, 2016. The National Educators Association's (NEA) Read Across America Day, which celebrates Dr. Seuss's birthday and the joys of reading, expects more than 45 million readers yearly, both young and old, to pick up a book and read.
