A quote from Dr. Seuss, "Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one."
This quote depicted the day for students in first and second grade at
Piedmont Academy as they celebrated Dr. Seuss Day.
Dr. Seuss, a rhyming wordsmith, is loved by children and adults across the world. Dr. Seuss was not an official doctor, but his prescription for fun has delighted readers for more than 60 years.
Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known to the world as the beloved Dr.
Seuss, was born in Springfield, Massachusetts. His family immigrated from Germany. During his successful career, Seuss became a recipient of the Pulitzer Prize.
During the day, the students watched a video of pop star Justin Beiber
and read the book "The Cat in the Hat" in the school's media center.
With the help of media specialist Traci Brady, they made their own
version of "cat in the hat" top hats.Seuss would have been 107 years old.
