My kindergartner is learning to read, and that means there’s a lot of Dr. Seuss happening in our house right now. Kids love Dr. Seuss because his silly stories are so much fun, and the simple words and repetitive phrases help them build their confidence as readers.
Dr. Seuss’s birthday is March 2nd, but the celebrations have already started in and around Indianapolis. Here are some of the Dr. Seuss-themed events we think you won’t want to miss.
