Dr. Seuss is on the Loose at Stevenson Primary

If you work in a school, you don't have to have me tell you that last week was Read Across America week. If you work in a primary school, Dr. Seuss basically drives instruction during the first week of March. And that's a good thing.

There were themed days.

Crazy socks to celebrate Fox in Socks.

Wear green for Green Eggs and Ham.

Hats for Cat in the Hat.

Mustaches for The Lorax.

Our school was flooded with guest readers, 
including our school superintendent and several Jacketeers.

Our principals got in on the fun.

One of my favorite pictures from an earlier Read Across America week,
with me as the Cat and my library assistant and her daughter as Things 1 and 2.

This year, I wore last year's birthday gift from my wonderful sister. The perfect shirt to wear while reading the magnificent Green Eggs and Ham.

Love, love, love Dr. Seuss.

Don't forget to vote in Dr. Seuss's Battle of the Books. For every vote received, First Book will receive $1 (up to $10,000).

Did you celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday last week?

What is the Sunday SalonImagine some university library's vast reading room. It's filled with people--students and faculty and strangers who've wandered in. They're seated at great oaken desks, books piled all around them,and they're all feverishly reading and jotting notes in their leather-bound journals as they go. Later they'll mill around the open dictionaries and compare their thoughts on the afternoon's literary intake....That's what happens at the Sunday Salon, except it's all virtual. Every Sunday the bloggers participating in that week's Salon get together--at their separate desks, in their own particular time zones--and read. And blog about their reading. And comment on one another's blogs. Think of it as an informal, weekly, mini read-a-thon, an excuse to put aside one's earthly responsibilities and fall into a good book. Click here to join the Salon.

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It's a chance to share news and recap the past week.

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page. We share books that we found in our mailboxes last week. 
 It is now being hosted here.

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews in which you can share the books you've acquired.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between!  This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from! I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is now being hosted at The Book Date.


  1. We did Dr. Seuss week at DS5's pre-K. He already had most of the books practically memorized... He's a huge fan. We were in Orlando the week before last and went to the Seuss section of Universal Studios, where he rode the Sneeches Star Machine ride and the one fish/two fish ride. HE was so happy! (Thx for coming by my Paleo Places blog ealier, btw!)

  2. I am delighted that Dr. Seuss's books are still delighting children. I read the books to my children and grandchildren...

    I also love the idea of themed days.

    Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

  3. This looks like so much fun! I don't remember this happening when I was in school, sadly. The cruise I was on did celebrate his birthday though! :D Have a great week!!

    Here's my Weekly Recap!

    1. We didn't have these celebrations when I was in school either, but then again school was much more Dickens-ish than now.

  4. Oooh! That Dr. Seuss event looks like so much fun!

    Here’s my Sunday Post!

    Ronyell @ Rabbit Ears Book Blog and join in this week’s Book Photo Sundays!

  5. Oh, I saw lots of Dr. Seuss dress-up on Facebook among my friends' grandchildren. Love it, love it!

  6. How fun, Dr. Seuss is the best! And I had no idea last week was Read across America, is that sad or what? *hangs head* Anyway neat pics!

    1. I must say I'm shocked to find a reader who didn't know last week was Read Across America.

  7. I did celebrate Dr. Seuss last week (I think) I re-read "Oh the Places You'll Go." Was that Seuss? I couldn't miss that it was RAA week. I saw your sign at your school. I reminded my "big kids".

  8. You organized a fun week of events. I am going to suggest that the high school leadership class do something similar next year. Hey, all kids cut their teen on Seuss and most still love him.

  9. Hi there! Been quite a bit... But now I'm back and first of all your post is soooo great!!! Love all the pictures you've shared and it sure does like you all had a lot of fun. Well done! Dr Seuss is somehow not very popular in my culture (Afrikaans, from South Africa), but I still love it!

    Hope you will have a good week and here's a link to my latest post:

  10. We even celebrate on the cat blogs. We had a giveaway for a crocheted Dr. Seuss hat and a Dr. Seuss catnip mat. Your school looks like fun.

  11. It looks like a great week!! Such fun stuff - I love the Lorax mustaches. And that tshirt from your sister is awesome!

  12. Oh what fun! It's great to see how everyone gets into the act.

  13. Read Across America week is always a fun one! My son's teacher dressed up as Teacher 1 (like Thing 1). D wasn't a Dr. Seuss character, but he did dress up as Percy Jackson!

  14. My kids' school never did stuff like this. I did read Dr. Seuss books to my kids, though. Our favorite Seuss book is one that doesn't get mentioned a lot, The Sleep Book.

  15. Looks like a fun event. My daughter's in middle school so I miss those fun days.

  16. Fabulous themes and funny photos of you all. I wished I could be a kid again.
    Best regrads, Synnöve


I love to hear what you think.
