The City of Doral will be serving green eggs and ham — well, sort of.
On Saturday, Feb. 28 at 11 a.m., Doral will celebrate what would have been Dr. Seuss’ 111th birthday at Ronald Reagan Senior High School, 8600 NW 107th Ave.
Dr. Seuss — a pseudonym for Theodor Seuss Geisel— was an American writer and cartoonist who died in 1991.
“Come help us plant the seed and encourage the city of Doral’s children to read. He’s 111 and that’s really quite old, but we’ve never stopped reading the stories he told,” the invitation says.
This will be the sixth consecutive year the City of Doral sponsors the event in response to the National Education Association’s “Read Across America” program, which focuses on building a nation of readers.
Doral is one of the thousands of communities, schools and libraries that participate in this initiative of promoting reading amongst our youth.
“What kid (or grownup) doesn’t love the timeless stories of Dr. Seuss?” said Doral spokeswoman Maggie Santos in a press release.
Activities will include: outdoor games, arts and crafts, face painting, magic shows and special appearances by the Dr. Seuss characters. Parking and admission are free.
The event will run from 11 am to 1:30pm. For more information, visit cityofdoral.com or call 305-593-6725.
