Dr. Seuss Birthday Party Ideas

Do you remember your favorite Dr. Seuss Book?  Does it bring back memories of your childhood?   Once you read one of his books to a child they want to hear it over and over again. I know that with my students, once I read them one of his books, the request to read more just keeps on coming!   With his enticing characters, colorful  illustrations and  rich language, his books are sure to delight children all over the world.
