Time for Dr. Seuss

As March approaches so does the birthday of this favorite children's book author. The birthday of Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel) is one that is celebrated in schools and childcare centers across the country. On March 2 classrooms everywhere will be reading Green Eggs and Ham or One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. Make sure to place your guesses on the famous Dr. Seuss character silhouettes located on the bulletin board in the Youth Services area at the Chester County Library. For your rhyming reading pleasure, here are a few lesser know Dr. Seuss books that are also worth a look.

Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You? is the story of Mr. Brown who moves through his day making the noises of the animals and other noise makers he meets. Can you make the noises too? This book is a fun interactive book to share with your young noisemaker!

The Butter Battle Book tells the story of the battles between the Yooks and the Zooks. Using the traditional Seuss rhyming style, this story is about an argument about which side of the bread to butter!

Bartholomew and the oobleck begins when the King decides that rain, snow and fog are not enough, he needs something else to fall from the sky. But when the royal magicians create oobleck, the King and Bartholomew wonder if it is such a good idea.
