To celebrate the birthday of beloved children's author Theodore Geisel - also known as Dr. Seuss -- the Children's Services Department will host a special Dr. Seuss film showing program in the Friends Room at 3:00p.m. on Wednesday, March 2.
Theodore Seuss Geisel was born on March 2, 1904, in Springfield Massachusetts. During his long career, Geisel wrote and illustrated 44 children's books, including the classic children's books The Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham which have sold more than 200 million copies worldwide. Although he was told by a high-school art teacher that he would never be an artist, Seuss illustrated many of his books. Seuss died in September 1991 at the age of 87. Join us in celebrating the birthday of this special man who has made so many children smile.
The library event is part of the National Education Association's "Read Across America" celebration, which is held annually on Dr. Seuss' birthday to motivate children to read and to stress the difference a caring adult can make by reading with a child.
After the film showing, all the attendees can stay for a piece of birthday cake and raffle drawings. For more details and to register, please call the Children's Desk at (626)307-1358.
