Apparently, Mrs. Obama does not like green eggs and ham.
Or so she said today at the Library of Congress where the NEA kicked off Read Across America Day nationwide in conjunction with what would have been Dr. Seuss’s 107th birthday. Thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers will be participating with kids everywhere reading “The Cat in the Hat” and “Green Eggs and Ham” while wearing floppy red and white hats.
So in honor of his birthday today March 2, here are 10 quick facts about the good doctor. However, I must add that I found so much contradictory legend and lore about Dr. Seuss floating around out there that I can’t completely state that everything you’re reading here is 100% accurate. But, hey, no one liked a good story than Dr. Seuss himself.
