Happy birthday to you (and Thing One and Thing Two)!

Today is Dr. Seuss's birthday! (He's 106!)

In honor of Dr. Seuss, today is also annual Read Across America day. Schools, libraries, government programs, and even the First Family are celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday by renewing their dedication to literacy. Meanwhile, the "Cat-a-Van" wends its way through the states, treating students to read-alouds and donating funding and books to needy schools and their libraries. Check out the Library of Congress's Read.gov for more information on national literacy programs.

We'll be celebrating too with an upcoming event! Boston Sports Club for Kids will be joining us for story time on March 27th. They'll do a swim safety demonstration and fun activities to follow the reading of One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. Come on in at noon as usual.

One last thing: take a moment to feast your eyes on these amazing Seussian-themed cakes. Good books and good cakes -- what more could you want on someone else's birthday? :)
