Dr Seuss Day is held annually on March 2nd.

Traditionally on this day, many schools across the country celebrate author Dr Seuss (whose birthday was on March 2nd).  From dress up days that coincide with Dr Seuss book themes to fun Dr Seuss snacks and crafts, this is usually a pretty big deal in many elementary schools!

My kids always have a bunch of different Dr Seuss themed activities going on in their school, especially during late February/early March. Have you checked out the Dr Seuss Book Club deal? I have always loved that one for baby shower gifts, birthday gifts, etc.

Today’s new post is all about PIZZA!
