If you are looking for some Dr. Seuss Activities to celebrate Read Across America Day on March 1st, you’ve come to the right place. Even though Dr. Seuss has never been one of my personal favorites, it’s impossible not to appreciate an author who has inspired so many children to read! Lots of lovely bloggers linked up some creative Dr. Seuss-inspired activities to last week’s The Children’s Bookshelf linky. I’ve featured a selection today, and you can find even more on last week’s post, so be sure to check out all the folks who linked up.
The post with the most clicks was Even in Australia’s post about what books she bought for a precocious 8 year old boy. One of my favorite posts was this awesome handmade Eric Carle puppet theater from doua fete cucuiete! The blog is written in Romanian, but you can click on the translate button to read it in your chosen language (the pictures say it all, though!).
