Education and literacy is an important issue for parents, teachers, and children everywhere. As Dr. Seuss had once stated, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” As an advocate of children’s literacy and a renowned children’s author, Dr. Seuss has been given his own day to encourage reading among children. Read Across America Day falls on Dr. Seuss’ birthday, March 2nd and what better way to celebrate and spread awareness than by wearing a Dr. Seuss character costume? If you’d like to encourage reading and bring awareness to the importance of literacy in your community, here are a few of our favorite wacky Dr. Seuss costumes to attract attention to this wonderful holiday!
