Dr. Seuss’ birthday comes again this year on March 2nd, marking Read Across America, and reminding me of the singsong voice that is a cornerstone of many childhood reading lessons. His inspirational quotes are found here and there and everywhere (including my Christmas cards this year).

It’s the perfect reason to have a bit of fun in the kitchen in a Seussical style, of course. Bright colors, fun rhymes and a bit of magic will have you and the kids laughing in no time. Grab your favorite Dr. Seuss classics and make a reading and eating party out of your Friday night.

The more that you read,
The more things you will know,
The more that you learn,
The more places you’ll go.
-Dr. Seuss
