Stockton Springs Community Library Story Hour Celebrates Dr. Seuss March 2nd

The Stockton Springs Community Library (SSCL) will host a Celebration of Dr. Seuss at the March Story Hour for children of all ages on Saturday, March 2nd from 10:00 to 11:00 am. In addition to the stories, there will be snacks and a craft activity. 

Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known under his pseudonym “Dr. Seuss,” was “probably the best-loved and certainly the best-selling children’s book writer of all time,” wrote Robert Wilson of the New York Times Book Review. Geisel entertained several generations of young readers with his zany nonsense books. Speaking to Herbert Kupferberg of Parade, Geisel once claimed: “Old men on crutches tell me, ‘I’ve been brought up on your books.'” His “rhythmic verse rivals Lewis Carroll‘s,” stated Stefan Kanfer in Time, “and his freestyle drawing recalls the loony sketches of Edward Lear.” Because of his work in publishing books for young readers and for the many innovative children’s classics he wrote himself, during the second half of the twentieth century Geisel “had a tremendous impact on children’s reading habits and the way reading is taught and approached in the school system,” declared Miles Corwin of the Los AngelesTimes.

All are welcome to this free event. The library is currently engaged in a fundraising raffle for a $100 gift card to Stone Fox Creamery. Raffle tickets will be available for purchase during the Story Hour event.
