Ms. Marilyn sees if the kids can make a sound like thunder while reading “Mr. Brown Can Moo.”

We threw a delicious, delectable, definitely-the-best-able birthday party for Dr. Seuss earlier this month.

Children played games and made crafts inspired by Seuss’s books all day. The designed pockets for their wockets and hats for their cats. They fished for red and blue fish. And searched our Children’s Department for all the hidden hats.

We also had a pair of special guests during our story times, State Rep. John Rogers and State Sen. John Eklund. Both Johns did a great job with the tongue twisters in One Fish, Two Fish.

The library also had a birthday cake for the good doctor, and Dr. Seuss books available for the families to read.
