Cat in the Hat kids got together at the Launch Pad to wish Dr. Suess a “Happy Birthday.”

The children of Launch Pad Enrichment Centre in Savannah joined others from around the world in wishing children’s author Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known to the world as the beloved Dr. Seuss, a great big “Happy Birthday.”

Since 1957 when The Cat in the Hat was published, Dr. Seuss books have shown millions of children around the world that reading could be fun. Families, kids and grown-up kids too fondly remember books like “Green Eggs and Ham,” “ABC” and “Oh the Places You’ll Go,” to name just a few.

All dressed in Cat-in-the-hat style hats, the kids of Launch Pad brought in their favourite Dr. Seuss Books to take part in a special Read-a-thon celebration, with a variety of guest readers from the local community.

At the end of the day delighted kids chanted “Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss” as a birthday cake was shared out, followed by ice cream.

Laurel Fraser, Executive Director of the Launch Pad Enrichment Centre said: “This special activity day is designed to commemorate reading, learning and community. In Grand Cayman we are joining millions of readers in the United States to celebrate a great author who was born on March 2nd 1904 and who died on September 24th 1991. His books are legendary and for fifty years his genius has been inspiring children to read and enjoy books as well as discover the joys
of reading.”

The children of Savannah joined in Dr. Seuss Birthday Celebrations going on around the world, with everyone who grew up on the mastermind’s rhymes taking some time to revisit a bit of their childhood. Even rappers and R&B stars donned their best Dr. Suess outfits especially for the occasion. In addition, a brand new movie, The Lorax, has just been released, and will help to introduce more kids to the magical world of Dr. Seuss.
