March 2 is Dr. Seuss Day, also known as "Read Across America Day". When March 2 falls on a weekend, as it does this year, it is celebrated on the closest weekday.  Hence in 2024 it occurs on Friday, March 1st so that American schoolchildren can enjoy this special day.

Reading a Dr. Seuss classic such as "The Cat in the Hat", "Green Eggs and Ham" or "Hop on Pop" is a great way to enjoy this day.

Reading is one of my favorite activities. Yet being dyslexic, learning to read and write "right" was a challenge. My poor mother despaired sometimes, seeing my reams and reams of carefully printed words-comprised of upside-down and backwards letters. 

While I don't remember the exact details or a special "a-ha" moment, I do recall Mrs. Johnson, my teacher in Second Grade was especially encouraging, giving me tons of extra paper and pencils to practice with, and eventually I "got it" and succeeded at reading and writing. She even gave me a Betty Crocker Cookbook for Children as a reward at the end of the year. My family and I have enjoyed recipes from it for decades.

To celebrate early, I checked out a new book from the library today and look forward to reading it tonight to get a "leap ahead" (as it's Leap Year Day February 29th) on Read Across America Day. What book will you read? 

Thanks for reading "Celebrate Dr. Seuss Day-Read Across America Mar. 1."

Good morning Michelle. Mrs. Johnson was the one that gave you the extra push on your journey to overcome. She saw the potential and was correct because you never gave up. Enjoy your day.

Hello Michelle - is it more (or most) appropriate to write this comment in prose, verse or something from the page of who knows what.  So, in honor of Mr. Geisel AKA Dr Seuss, I wonder and ponder-a-plenty. 

And, of course, for better or worse, I chose a version of rhyme.  Is that perverse?    Perhaps, pre-verse.  🙃

Good morning Michelle,

Loved your post! I too love Dr. Seuss and so did my kids who grew up listening to me read those wonderful stories to them! Hats off to your former second grade teacher Mrs. Johnson who encouraged you to read.
