ISU Bookstore, Early Learning Center students celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday
March 3, 2015
The Idaho State University Bookstore celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2, sponsoring a “Hats Off to Reading” event enjoyed by 65 children, who came in three groups, from ISU’s Early Learning Center.
It would have been Dr. Seuss’s 111th birthday. ISU First Lady Laura Vailas read stories to the children, who were also treated to cupcakes.
“I was very happy with the event,” said Laurie Richards, manager of the ISU Bookstore. “Dr. Vailas enjoyed reading and an employee, Amanda May, who is in the music department, also read to the kids. The kids asked questions, they giggled and laughed, so I’d say it all went well.”
Dr. Seuss was the pen name for Theodor Seuss Geisel, who lived from March 2, 1904, to Sept. 24, 1991. He was an American writer and cartoonist who wrote 46 children’s books known for their characters and rhyme.
