Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
By Breeanna Hare, CNN
If you spot someone snacking on green eggs with a little pork on the side, don’t be alarmed: They’re probably celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday, which is today, March 2.
Aside from cooking up a meal based on his infamous title, there are other ways to honor the man who gave us such enduring stories like “The Cat in the Hat” and “Oh, The Places You’ll Go!”
For starters, you could read: March 2 is also the National Education Association’s “Read Across America Day,”.
Events are happening across the country, and Zac Efron and Danny DeVito, two stars of the adaptation of “The Lorax,” also took part in the reading fest with an appearance at the main branch of the New York Public Library.
And secondly, you could check out the film “The Lorax” based on the Seuss book of the same name. Also starring Taylor Swift, Betty White and Ed Helms, “The Lorax” arrives in theaters today (although the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes aren’t looking kind).
Over at Time magazine, they’re taking a look at Seuss apart from the classic series of books we know so well, exploring his cartoon work, humor writing and efforts in advertising.
But perhaps the best thing you can do is follow Seuss’ example: The still famous author reportedly had to try 27 times before he got his first book published – try, try again, indeed.
Seuss, who was born Theodor Seuss Geisel, would’ve turned 108 today. He died in 1991 at the age of 87.
