Three of our favorite storytime book authors celebrate March birthdays.
Dr. Seuss, the icon whose birthday is regularly celebrated in schools and libraries, was born on March 2 (as Theodore Geisel, of course). My favorite Dr. Seuss books? "Mr Brown Can Moo, Can You?", "Green Eggs and Ham", and "And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street". Mem Fox, author of one of my all-time favorites, "Where is the Green Sheep", as well as many other classics including "Wombat Divine", and "Shoes from Grandpa", celebrates her birthday on March 5.
Finally, Ezra Jack Keats, renowned and ground-breaking author of "The Snowy Day", "Whistle for Willie", and "Peter's Chair", was born on March 11.
The works of all three of these superlative authors are regularly shared in our storytimes. (In fact, I'll be sharing one Dr. Seuss and one Mem Fox book next week! Purely coincidentally, by the way.) Happy Birthday!
