Dr Seuss has for many years been a giant in the world of children's fiction - so much so that in the US, teachers, parents and children mark his birthday on March 2 with a range of special events.
Read Across America encourages school and community activities, go to www.seussville.com/Educators/educatorReadAcrossAmerica.php for craft ideas, including making truffula tree bookmark and hats of all descriptions.
But the most important activity is reading one of Dr Seuss' classics to children and this is something Kiwi parents can join in as well. So take a moment on March 2 (or any other day of the year for that matter) and settle down with one of Dr Seuss' delightfully zany and witty stories.
