Happy Birthday Cat in the Hat!

March 1, 2007

It's Crazy Mixed-Up Day at Anna's preschool today — their way of celebrating the 50th anniversary of the classic Seuss tale Cat in the Hat. Anna wore her pajamas and slippers (backwards) to school, and could barely sleep last night for the excitement of today's snack (green eggs and ham).

NPR ran a story this morning about Dr. Seuss, the writing of Cat in the Hat, and its impact on early reading curricula. NPR's site includes lots of great interviews and resources. Enjoy!
