Theodore Seuss Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss, was born on March 2, 1904 and the numerous children’s books he wrote remain favorites to this day.
Schools everywhere celebrated the day with Dr. Seuss readings and costuming. Wearing their handmade hats, the children of Wendy Bennington’s Kindergarten class at Ivy Stockwell Elementary listen attentively as principal Rhonda Richer reads “Green Eggs and Ham.”
The children followed the reading by eating their own green eggs and ham.
