Our school celebrated the 100th day of school a couple weeks ago. Signs and posters all over the halls were adorned with one hundred things. Counting to one hundred is quite an accomplishment when you first start school, an accomplishment Dr. Seuss has been helping with for over 70 years. Whether its Yertle piling up turtles “ in a nine-turtle stack” or calling for more when he wants ” ’bout two hundred!” And two hundred is just a start for Bartholomew Cubbins as he gets to counting his 500 hats. This week Dr. Seuss has another exciting thing to count, well count down to, his Birthday! To honor his birthday Oceanhouse Media, one of our favorite gift-givers, has offered five promo codes for their ombook, Happy Birthday to You, to share with iPhone Mom viewers! What a great way to celebrate.
This week is also the Read Across America event and the theme is “Grab your Hat and Read with the Cat”. So, share some of your favorite books with the people you meet and don’t forget to enter our giveaway.
Guided by the most beautifully brained Birthday Bird of Katroo, this story takes EACH reader on a marvelous adventure celebrating their Day of all Days!
