On March 6, Raymond Village Library and Raymond Elementary School held a community Dr. Seuss Birthday Party. They have been partners for the last 13 years.
Theodor Seuss Geisel was an American writer and cartoonist. He was most widely known for his children's books, which he wrote and illustrated under the pseudonym Dr. Seuss.
Geisel published 46 children's books, often characterized by imaginative characters and rhyme. His most-celebrated books include the bestselling Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat, The Lorax, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, Fox in Socks, The King's Stilts, Hop on Pop, Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose, Horton Hatches the Egg, Horton Hears a Who! and How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
Two hundred people, including over 100 children participated in games and other activities including several crafting projects.
“Our teen volunteers were amazing and made the night a great success. Teens have a very special gift for working with young children.” Lisa, youth services assistant at the library commented.
After prizes were handed out, the night ended with a bang! The exit hallways were lined with bubble wrap and everyone was invited to “Hop on Pop” as they left the building. For more program information, visit www.raymondvillagelibrary.org.
