Dr. Seuss Day is March 2nd, also known as Read Across America Day, and in my house it is a BIG day! In previous years my family and I have attended local and free events at Target and Barnes and Noble, read from our extensive Seuss collection, and created fun crafts. This year, there aren't any in-person events but Barnes and Noble, Party City and PBS Kids all have plenty of FREE Dr. Seuss printables and online activities. Plus I've got a bunch of other ideas for celebrating Dr. Seuss Day at home.

Dr. Seuss Day at Home | Movies & TV Shows
It goes without saying that Dr. Seuss Day/ Read Across America Day is meant to promote and foster a love of reading in children. But be that as it may, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the many movies, TV shows and specials that feature Dr. Seuss characters.
Here's a list and exactly where you can find them:
