March 2 marks Dr. Seuss‘s birthday and National Read Across America Day, along with the release of the new movie based on his classic tale, The Lorax. Celebrate by reading the The Lorax or one of these top Dr. Seuss books with your child.
The Cat in the Hat (1957)
In this book, we were first introduced to “The Cat.” Who can forget the chaos that ensued when The Cat (and his pals Thing One and Thing Two) stop by to visit two children while their mother is out.
Green Eggs and Ham (1960)
Sam and his unnamed pal are polar opposites. Sam is excitable and enthusiastic, while the other character is just grumpy. The plot of this fun Dr. Seuss book revolves around Sam trying to get his friend to eat green eggs and ham. This book teaches a great lesson to kids about trying something new — you never know, you might like it.
Horton Hears a Who! (1954)
Horton the Elephant hears a small speck of dust talking to him. However, it’s not just an ordinary speck of dust, it’s really a tiny planet where the inhabitants — the Whos — live in the town of Whoville.
