"If you never did you should. These things are fun and fun is good." - Dr. Seuss
In honor of Theodor Seuss Geisel's birthday (aka Dr. Seuss), March 2nd is Read Across America Day. Children everywhere take place in Dr. Seuss Read Across America activities. These activities are geared to promote literacy across all age groups. Though some schools engage in simply reading Dr. Seuss books, parents, teachers and educators everywhere put on their "creative hats" and design all sorts of games and events.
In addition to writing about toys, my best toy reviewers include the children I work with daily in the school system as an occupational therapist. The younger children I worked with decorated Dr. Seuss hats, while older children wrote paragraph essays, based on a list of my favorite Dr. Seuss quote.
One of the best Dr. Seuss games we all played, involved the Wonder Forge Dr. Seuss Fun Machine game (compare prices).Using 32 Dr. Seuss themed tiles, in conjunction with an iPad/iPhone/iPod app, kids are challenged to follow directions through matching and memory games. Even better, this game retails for $10, and the tiles can be used in various games, even without the app.
