- Dr. Seuss, from his book "Happy Birthday to You!"
Dr. Seuss's birthday, March 2, is honored across the country through Read Across America, an NEA project, with events in the spirit of this champion of early literacy.
The United Way of Santa Fe County, celebrates with a big birthday party! The focus is on early literacy, with reading circles in English and Spanish, a book exchange, cake, snacks, balloons, and prizes. Bring gently-used children's books to give away, and take some new ones home. All children under age 5 will be enrolled in the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, a nonprofit program that mails age-appropriate, high-quality books to children directly to their home.
Parents, caregivers and children are all welcome at the FREE event, Wednesday March 2, 2016, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at the United Way Early Learning Center at Agua Fria, 3164 Agua Fria Road, Santa Fe, NM. Registration is recommended; call 505-819-5484.
