“Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.” And there was no one quite like Dr. Seuss. At Dr. Seuss’ Birthday Celebration on Saturday, March 2 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Fairytale Town, 3901 Land Park Drive in Sacramento, will mark the beloved author and illustrator’s birthday with a read-aloud and Seuss-themed hands-on activities.
“Green Eggs and Ham,” “Fox in Sox,” “Hop on Pop” and more of Dr. Seuss’ celebrated books will be read-aloud from the Mother Goose Stage throughout the program. Featured readers include Sacramento’s vice mayor Angelique Ashby; Mix 96’s Jennifer Wood; and News 10’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, creating rhyming flip charts and planting “truffula” trees.
Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Seuss Geisel on March 2, 1904 in Springfield, Mass.
Dr. Seuss’ Birthday Celebration is free with paid park admission. Weekend admission is $5 for adults and children ages 2 and older and free for children ages 1 and under.
