33+ Dr. Seuss Crafts and Activities + The Best Dr. Seuss Books to Read

Dr. Seuss Day falls on his birthday, March 2nd each year, and is celebrated as the National Read Across America Day. Early reading provides children with the building blocks of reading, speech, communication patterns, and language development, and boosts their learning potential through elementary, middle, high school, and adulthood. I think Dr. Seuss Day is a great way to get kids to fall in love with reading, which we know is proven to help kids to better succeed at school in a formal classroom environment.

What I love about Dr. Seuss’ books is that they make it silly and fun for kids who are learning to read. The rhyming sounds, patterns, and quirky, eye-catching illustrations help early readers learn new words and gain confidence to read by themselves. This is a great way to get the whole family reading together while promoting literacy for your kiddos. Choose your favorite Dr. Seuss books and try some of these fun Dr. Seuss crafts and activities!
