JONESVILLE — There are many ways to celebrate the life and work of a literary legend but one of the best ways has to be a family-oriented event that puts books into the hands of children.
Thedore Suess Geisel was born March 2, 1904 and, as an adult, became a writer, cartoonist, animator, book publisher and artist whose most famous work were the children’s books he wrote under the pen name Dr. Seuss. Those books include “Horton Hatches the Egg,” “Horton Hears a Who!,” “And to Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street,” “On Beyond Zebra,” “If I Ran the Zoo,” “If I Ran the Circus,” “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!,” “Hop on Pop,” “Fox in Socks,” “Green Eggs and Ham,” “One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish,” “The Lorax,” “Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now!” “The Cat in the Hat,” and “The Cat in the Hat Comes Back.”
This year marks the 113th anniversary of Geisel’s birth, an event that was celebrated at Jonesville Elementary/Middle School with a very special literary event.
In a statement released Tuesday, Jonesville Elementary/Middle School announced that it had celebrated the birthday of Dr. Suess with “Family Book Bingo Night” on Tuesday, Feb. 28.
“Each winning card put a book in the hands of a student!” the press release states. “A good time was had by all, and no one left empty-handed. We thank all our parents and students who attended.”
