Since Dr. Seuss was such an important children's author, March 2nd has also been adopted as National Read Across America Day.
It should be apparent that Dr. Seuss was and is a very important person in the library world, so it was no surprise that the Canton Library would want to have a birthday celebration for him. Due to being closed on Saturdays (his birthday was on a Saturday), the staff of the Canton Library decided to plan his party for February 28th.
We had plenty of food, games, and prizes for those who showed up. We saw a surprising 39 people!
A display of a few of Dr. Seuss' titles the Canton Library owns.
Our Page Julie baked and decorated 48 cupcakes, all of which were eaten in a flash! These cupcakes also feature handmade cupcake toppers with Dr. Seuss characters.
The Children's Librarian Lisa's niece, Taiylor, made whimsical sugar cookies! They were loved by all, and very easy to make!
Green eggs! Everyone loved these small sweet treats made by the Children's Librarian Lisa.
Thing 1 and 2 and Horton!
One fish, two fish, red fish, gold fish!
Our food display.
Children's Librarian Lisa and Page Julie twisted the game Pin The Tail on The Donkey and turned it into Pin The Hat on The Cat!
We had a small station were kids could create their own Cat in The Hat hats! We put out Dr. Seuss-themed stickers and markers so they could decorate their hat in whatever way they wanted.
We also adapted Musical Hats from the game Musical Chairs.
One of our prizes: Reading rubber duckies! Each duck had a genre. Can you tell which ones are which? We also had pencils with themed erasers.
