Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss
Beloved children’s author Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, was born on March 2, 1904. Today would have been the American writer and cartoonist’s 111 birthday. As a homage to the literary genius who brought us “Green Eggs and Ham”, “The Cat in the Hat”, “The Lorax”, “One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish”, and “Fox in Socks”, to name a few of his works, Northern Essex Community College’s Alumni Office invited the children of Little Sprouts to a morning celebration in the David Hartleb Technology Center on the Haverhill campus.
After a reading of “The Cat in the Hat Comes Back” by staff and faculty including NECC Workforce Development Director George Moriarty, NECC President Lane Glenn, and Early Childhood Education professor Deirdre Budzyna, the children were treated to a breakfast of fresh fruit, green eggs and ham sandwiches, yogurt, and juice.
Each child was given a copy of the book as a keepsake.
