Read Across America

Lately this is a pretty common sight around here. I found Jack reading on his bed at 6:45 this morning--the perfect start for Read Across America Day.

We had our traditional green eggs and ham for breakfast. I know the eggs aren't scrambled and the ham is green in the book, but this is how my kids will eat them.

In addition to some other Dr. Seuss activities, we worked this puzzle I found on clearance at our closing Borders last week. Jack wanted to have his picture taken next to it so you could see how big it is.

Tonight we went to a Dr. Seuss celebration at the library.

They also had several games set up for the kids to play.

Jack was never able to balance the apples long enough to walk anywhere, but the helper had him laughing so hard, I don't think he cared.

I think this game was for Hop on Pop--they jumped on bubble wrap to try to pop it.

Not the best action shot, but Alice can jump pretty well.

I'm not sure what this game was for, but Jack had fun!

We wrapped up the evening with cupcakes!

Happy reading!
