Dr. Seuss' Birthday Celebration

Dr. Seuss' Birthday Celebration

Presented by Fairytale Town and CapRadio at Fairytale Town

Join Fairytale Town as we celebrate Theodor Seuss Geisel’s 115th birthday with Seuss-themed hands on activities and crafts. Stop by the Mother Goose Stage for a unique nonstop reading of your favorite colorful, tongue-twisting, rhyming Seuss books!

"Green Eggs and Ham," "The Cat in the Hat Comes Back," "There's a Wocket in My Pocket" and more of Dr. Seuss' celebrated books will be read-aloud from the Mother Goose Stage throughout the program. Featured readers include Sacramento city council member Steve Hansen, Capital Public Radio's Donna Apidone, and ABC10's Mellisa Paul.

There will also be a variety of Seuss-inspired hands-on activities for children to create and take home as souvenirs. Activities include making "Cat in the Hat" hats, Thing 1 and 2 puppets, and "truffula" trees.

Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Seuss Geisel on March 2, 1904 in Springfield, Massachusetts. He is the author and illustrator of 44 books for children, including "The Cat in the Hat," "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and "Oh, The Places You'll Go!" His birthday is also celebrated as Read Across America Day, organized by the National Education Association to promote reading.
