Today would be the 108th birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel, the author of 46 children’s books. He is best known by his pen name, Dr. Seuss.

To celebrate Dr. Seuss Week, Laura Cameron’s first grade class at Manistee Catholic Central Elementary School is reading lots of Dr. Seuss books and doing a variety of activities.

They will be enjoying Dr. Seuss-themed snacks, such as Goldfish crackers, blue Jell-o and Swedish fish for “One Fish, Two Fish,” “Cat in the Hat” treats and a special version of “Green Ham and Eggs.”

“We’ll be doing all kinds of fun stuff,” Cameron said.

The students started by making hats and bow ties like those worn by the “Cat in the Hat,” which as the older students at the school saw them had them thinking back to the fun they had during Dr. Seuss Week.

“They are also very excited about the movie ‘The Lorax’ that’s coming out,” Cameron said.
