Chicago events to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday

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:
