Why is Read Across America and Dr. Seuss celebrated on March 2?
Because Dr. Seuss was born on March 2, 1904, in Springfield, Massachusetts. His full name was Theodor Seuss Geisel. He wasn’t always known as Dr. Seuss. His friends and family knew his as “Ted.” Seuss was his mother’s maiden name. It wasn’t until later in college when he began using “Seuss” to sign his creative works. This was his first pseudonym.
His mother often soothed her children by chanting rhymes that she remembered from her childhood in Germany. Dr. Seuss credits …

SUPER HERO HANDPRINT POEM

Dylan, our three-year-old grandchild, gave this preschool handprint poem gift to his daddy this past Father’s Day.

Dylan’s handprint poem is in a frame with Spiderman glued onto the glass after it is put together.
This Super Hero handprint poem can also be written to a grandfather for Father’s Day by simply changing a few …

National Parks Week
To celebrate National Parks Week, all 401 National Parks have free admission and events planned. Can you name the names of the 401 National Parks? I certainly can’t, and if I did then this post would be too long. If I’ve peaked your curiousity, the National Park Service can help you with their names and locations on their website. Do you know which naturalist was the first to persuade President Harrison to create Yosemite as the first National Park?  I’ll tell you at the end of this post.
