He gave us the Whos, the Lorax and the Grinch
He taught us to count and clean up in a pinch
And this is the month we all celebrate
A man whose tales entertain and educate
Not Silverstein or Dahl or even Mother Goose
It's 110 years for the ageless Dr. Seuss
Celebrate the master of rhyme at one of these Seussical events
around Chicagoland this weekend:
Join actor John O'Hurley for a storytime for the whole family.
He answers that question, Is there one kind of dog that is better
than all the rest?, in his delightfully charming and Seuss-like
poem, The Perfect Dog.
This one-day-only event will celebrate the work of Dr. Seuss and
engage children and families in fun, Seuss-inspired activities in
order to create excitement and enthusiasm around reading and
writing. Stop in any time to celebrate with coloring
activities, face painting, readings, childrens' book discounts,
cake, and with the following special guests: 10 a.m. Silly Seussian
crafty with Wishcraft Workshop and gluten-free, nut-free sweet

the Junior League of Chicago's Mad Hatters; noon Dr. Seuss
