Wacky, Weird and Fun! Celebrate Dr. Seuss's Birthday

A Dr. Seuss Roundup!  Even if you don't celebrate on his birthday, it's always fun to have a Dr. Seuss themed lesson, party or meal.  These are some ideas to have fun and encourage reading with children.

  • Dr. Seuss Activities Done Last Year by the ChildCareInfo community - We had a  Contest last year and got so many wonderful submissions!  
  • Dr. Seuss Books recommended by our Early Childhood Expert, Summer Langille, M.A. 
  • Blog recommendation by Summer which has some good pics on having a Dr. Seuss Green Eggs and Ham Day
  • The Dr. Seuss Linky from Teach Preschool.  What's a linky?  A Linky is what happens when a blogger puts out a request for other bloggers to "link to" their blog about a certain topic.  In this case you have access to 42 other blogs that have done neat Dr. Seuss activities and have shared them.
  • A great musical c.d. to have playing this week for Seuss' birthday....Seussical the Musical: Seussical [2000 Original Broadway Cast]
  • ChildCareInfo's Pinboard Dr. Seuss Stuff

Samantha Marshall, M.A.

Samantha is, just like you, excited to make a difference in our community and our world. With a Master of Arts degree in English Literature, you might ask how she found herself building and writing for a website focused on child care. From 1995 through 2001, Samantha started her career working for Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) sponsors which introduced her to the importance of non-profits, community and quality child care. Her experience with Sponsors, State Officials, and Family Child Care Providers left a great and lasting impression. Later in her career and her most recent position at SAGE Publications, an academic publisher, was as a product manager for a new online resource! During this time many of Samantha's passions collided. A love for the written word, children and the proliferation of knowledge as well as a fascination with the resources the internet gives us, building a community for child care on ChildCareInfo.com is the perfect way to make the difference she wanted to. Needless to say, she is very excited to be an active part of creating and building ChildCareInfo.com.
