O where is the affair of the birth of Dr. Seuss?

Okay, so we couldn't get that title to rhyme quite as well as Seuss would have himself, but we're not the only ones who have been getting our tongues twisted in the act of celebrating the literary giant's 107th birthday.

Schoolchildren around the nation marked Read Across America Day on Wednesday, started 14 years ago in honor of Theodor Seuss Geisel, as well as Michelle Obama herself, who read his works at the Library of Congress, the Washington Post reports.

If you've got kids (or a love for all of his quirks and works), it won't be hard to throw together a little impromptu celebration of your own to mark the occasion. Stage a standard reading of his selected works, or go all out with costumes and stage props.

Hand out hand painted animal banks for attendees to decorate in the likeness of their favorite Seuss character - a standard elephant can easily be made to resemble Horton, and the list goes on. By the time they collect a hefty chunk of change, they can really begin dreaming of the Places They'll Go.
