Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

“Today you are you, that is truer than true. there is no one alive who is youer than you.” Anyone know which Dr. Seuss book that’s from?

Well, school’s closed today because of the weather. It’s Dr. Seuss’s birthday and I found lots of activities to do with the kids. Those books, as annoying as they were to read night after night, entertained us all and we learned about life in the process. Share a book with someone today!

Check out the Dr. Seuss activities and to find out which book the quote is from.  To view more family-friendly stuff happening this week on Cape Ann, you’ll need to start Flapping like a Haddock!
