Is your daughter participating in National Read Across America Day at her school? Created by the National Education Association (NEA) with the goal to inspire all children to celebrate reading, it falls on March 2nd, the birthdate of the beloved children's author Dr. Suess. NEA's Read Across America program also provides resources and activities for kids to keep reading 365 days a year.
At the Leotard Boutique, we love this day and we love Dr. Seuss!
Many children wear Dr. Seuss-inspired outfits on March 2. Sarah, who runs @hairtodream on Instagram, created a Truffula Tree Hairstyle Tutorial. Truffula trees are featured in The Lorax, a children's book written by Dr. Seuss that warns about humanity's impact on environmental degradation. In the video, you may notice that her daughter wore a short sleeve leotard in mint paired with a dance skirt in mint from the Leotard Boutique as part of her special outfit.
Dr. Seuss was the pen name for Theodore Seuss Geisel. He started using the name Dr. Seuss while he was an undergraduate student at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire—located just 10 minutes from the Leotard Boutique's office. In fact, Dartmouth College named their medical school to honor Dr. Seuss. No, it's not called the Cat in the Hat Medical School. It's called The Geisel School of Medicine and is the fourth-oldest medical school in the United States.
We're so excited to share this @hairtodream hairstyle with you. (Thanks Sarah!)
We hope you celebrate reading every day. And in the words of Dr. Seuss from his book, I Can Read with My Eyes Shut:
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”
