In classrooms throughout Philadelphia, children participate in Read Across America Day, an initiative that was started to instill and promote a love for reading. Every year, this event is held on March 2nd, the birthday of beloved children's author, Dr. Seuss.
Libraries, museums, and bookstores also spend time celebrating the delightfully zany books written by this great author. Books such as Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat, Hop on Pop, and my particular favorite, Oh, The Places You'll Go are held near and dear to many children and grown-ups alike. Certain venues throughout the area feature engaging and educational activities and even special guest appearances! We have rounded up some local events Philly families can enjoy together.
