Green eggs and ham!
Why is that particular entr?©e on the lunch menu on March 2 at Cherrydale Primary?
‘Cause that’s the day the school celebrates Dr. Seuss’ birthday. And what could be more appropriate than the notable “green eggs and ham”?
Besides that distinctive entree, birthday cake also will be served as part of the day-long occasion. That morning at Cherrydale 20 youngsters (two from each class) will be selected to wear replicas of the cat’s distinctive red and white hat throughout the day. The school will host a Sleepy Time Read in the evening.
Seuss’s first book, “I saw it all on Mulberry Street,” was published in the late 1930s. What’s your favorite story? How many titles can you name?
For the past decade, young readers across the U.S. have marked this celebratory occasion that features “The Cat in the Hat,” one of Seuss’ most popular characters.
This year Cherrydale will combine “Read Across America” events with the 10th birthday celebration, according to Jane Dunivan, Cherrydale librarian. She’s been known to transform into the Cat for the occasion. Wonder what the Cherrydale Cheetah will have to say about that! But he’s also invited to the party.
Just because you’re not in school anymore is no excuse for not hosting your own “Seussical” party that day.
