Join Mix 96 for a celebration of Dr. Seuss’ birthday on Saturday, March 2nd at Fairytale town in Sacramento! This event happens from 11 am to 3pm and will mark the beloved author/illustrator’s birthday with book readings and Seuss-themed hands-on activities!
“Green Eggs and Ham,” “Fox in Sox,” “Hop on Pop” and more of Dr. Seuss’ celebrated books will be read-aloud from the Mother Goose Stage throughout the program. Featured readers include Sacramento’s vice mayor Angelique Ashby; Sacramento city council members Darrell Fong, Kevin McCarty and Jay Schenirer; News 10’s Mellisa Paul; and Mix 96’s own Jennifer Wood!
There will also be a variety of Seuss-inspired hands-on activities for children to create and take home as souvenirs. Activities include making “Cat in the Hat” hats, creating rhyming flip charts and planting “truffula” trees. Dr. Seuss’ birthday is also celebrated as Read Across America Day, organized by the National Education Association to promote reading.
