Mr. Pig is all decked out in his “Cat in the Hat” party hat and is ready to party. Spread the word, because everyone is invited to come to the early birthday party for Dr. Seuss. The party begins at MCPL Wausau on Saturday, February 26 with a sharing of Dr. Seuss stories at 10:30, followed by “Seussical” crafts, and of course a birthday cake. At 1:00 join us for the classic Dr. Seuss movie about a mischievous cat, wearing a red and white striped hat and bowtie, who visits the home of two bored children on a cold, wet day.
Dr. Seuss was named Theodor Seuss Geisel at birth, and was born was born on March 2, 1904 in Massachusetts. His first children’s book, “And To Think That I Saw it On Mulberry Street “ was rejected by all 27 publishers that he presented it to in 1937. A friend of his who worked at Vanguard Press offered to show it to his employers who finally decided to publish it. He wrote 44 books which have been translated into many languages, and is beloved by many generations of readers.
Come and celebrate his legacy, the enjoyment of reading, and have a fun, Seussical Day @ your library on Saturday, February 26.
