Dr. Seuss’ birthday celebrated

The children of Launch Pad Enrichment Centre will join the international community in celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday on Friday, 2 March.

Dr. Seuss was a playful author who catered to children. His books have been family favourites since 1957 when he first published “The Cat in the Hat”.

Over the years, the American writer, poet and cartoonist whose real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel, has helped millions of children learn to read. Many families may remember books such as Green Eggs and Ham, ABC, and Oh the Places You’ll Go.

This Friday, the students of Launch Pad will bring in their favourite Dr. Seuss book. The children plan to engage in a read-a-thon with guests, as well as enjoy a traditional cake and ice cream birthday party. The results of a Launch Pad poll about the favourite Dr. Seuss book will be revealed.

The activity day is designed to commemorate reading, learning and community.

Grand Cayman will be joining millions of readers in the United States in celebrating a great author, whose works are legendary and whose genius, for 50 years, has been inspiring children to read.

Dr. Seuss was born on 2 March, 1902, and passed away on 24 
September, 1991.
