Dr. Seuss’ Birthday – Read Across America

This past week we celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday (Wednesday, March 2) with Read Across America.  This year’s featured book is What Pet Should I Get?   Prior to reading the book, we talked about how this book was started by Dr. Seuss, but was completed afterwards using his other books to help them make decisions and then publishing it.


After reading the book we talked about stories which do not have definite endings (cliff hangers)  and which pet we thought they had picked  and why.

Additional Activities: 

Featured Books – Books by Dr. Seuss

Coloring Page – Draw that Pet

Word Search –  Pet Word Search

Video – Dr. Seuss
