Celebrating Dr. Suess at Literacy Night

Happy Friday Everyone!!!

Last night the kids and I went up to their school for a Literacy Night in celebration of Dr. Suess’s birthday.  It was a lot of fun.  There were six “bedtime stories” to listen to and then everyone had milk and cookies in the cafeteria.

We only had time to listen to three of the stories but Alex and Mac enjoyed each one.

The first was Mr. Brown Can Moo Can You by Dr. Seuss, which the kids really enjoyed because you get to make lots of silly sounds:

The next book was Goodnight, My Angel: a Lullaby by Billy Joel.  After the reading the teacher played the musical version which was very sweet:

The last story we listened to was Horton Hatches the Egg by Dr. Seuss.  Alex was familiar with this one but Mac said he had never heard it before.  It was very funny as well as poignant in several spots — Horton is such a loyal, devoted elephant!

We didn’t have time to get to the rooms for Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner (a book we read this past winter and the kids really enjoyed), Charlie the Caterpillar by Dom Deluise,  and The Bears in the Bed and the Great Big Storm by Paul Bright.

But we had a wonderful time celebrating books and reading and Dr. Suess!

If you have kids, what is one of your kids favorite childrens books?  Which one is your favorite from when you were a kid or more recently?

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

  2. That looks like so much FUN! Wish they did something like that here! I love all the Dr. Seuss books – and as a kid I had a special Fairy Tales book that my grandmother gave me that I still have to this day. :)

  5. Sounds like lots of fun. I loved Dr. Seuss as a child and I love how children get so excited about reading these kinds of books. It is a good intro to a life long passion for reading.

  7. Thank you so much for stopping over to visit and follow me. I really appreciate your time.
    I love the quote about the cats. There are 2 where I work and they are beautiful and have for some reason adopted me. They actually bite my hand (gently) so I will pet them. The bad news is I am so allergic. I take allergy medication now and it is much better.
    I look forward to getting to know you.
