Every child needs at least one Dr. Seuss book on the bedroom shelf. He’s an icon of childhood.
Reading those books to your child is a christening in creativity. Their imaginative word-games seep deep into your child’s psyche and awaken a sense of wonder like none other!
The good doctor would have turned 110 on March 2nd, so in honor of his great legacy, I though it would be appropriate to focus birthday planning post on all his incredible characters.
So gather up your Zizzer Zazzer Zuzz, Wocket, a few Whos, and even a reluctant Grinch to celebrate your child’s birthday!
