Dr Seuss Week

Dr. Seuss Week is a celebration that honors the beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel). Typically observed in schools and libraries across the United States, Dr. Seuss Week takes place annually during the first week of March. The celebration often coincides with Dr. Seuss’s birthday (Dr Seuss Day) on March 2nd.

During Dr. Seuss Week, teachers, parents, and students do activities to promote reading, creativity, and imagination. Many schools organize daily themes, such as “Crazy Hat Day”, “Wacky Wednesday” or “Pajama Day,” inspired by characters and stories from Dr. Seuss’s books. Classrooms may also focus on reading Dr. Seuss’s books, participating in literacy-related games, and making Dr Seuss themed crafts.

The goal of Dr. Seuss Week is to instill a love of reading in children and celebrate the timeless and whimsical stories created by Dr. Seuss. It’s an opportunity for schools to foster a love of reading and creativity among young kids.
