I like to see Dr. Seuss come back to life every year on his birthday, March 2nd.
My kids pair up and we share our stash of Dr. Seuss books.
Then we list common traits of many Dr. Seuss characters, such as funny hats, big eyes, tiny ears, 3 fingers, long and skinny arms, colorful fur--and of course silly names.
Finally, the kids create their own "Dr. Seuss" characters. They name them, draw them in action, and write about what they might do.
And so Dr. Seuss comes alive and he prances around in my kids' heads! Not a bad way to spend a day, right?
