Read Across America: Dr. Seuss Birthday

We love Dr. Seuss, and have an extensive collection of nearly every Dr. Seuss book possible to own. March is Read Across America National Reading Month in celebration of the beloved Dr. Seuss,born on March 2nd in 1904.

As an infant, Hop on Pop was a popular, often requested, book from my older son. When he was 4 ½ months old, we made a trip home to Germany. The Dr. Seuss book, Hop on Pop is one of the books we traveled with, reading on the plane, in the airport and while travelling around Germany. Close to 2 years of age, my son actually could “read” most of this book when looking at the pictures. Basically he had the book memorized.


Here are some free printables to go along with the Hop on Pop book. Good for all ages!
