Children will have the opportunity to wear silly hats, decorate bulletin boards and take home a free book when Physicians’ Primary Care of Southwest Florida honors Dr. Seuss’ birthday on March 2.
Dr. Seuss, who is most famous for his many children’s books, would have been 113 years old this year. Dr. Seuss’ birthday also is known as “Read Across America Day,” a nationwide reading celebration observed by thousands of schools, libraries and community centers.
“Children love the Dr. Seuss stories, such as The Cat In the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham. Fostering the love of learning early in life is the key to helping children to become successful academically,” said Dr. Nathan Landefeld, a pediatrician with Physicians’ Primary Care.
During February and March, all offices of Physicians’ Primary Care will be collecting new and previously loved books to be given to pediatric patients. Children’s books may be donated at any Physicians’ Primary Care office in Fort Myers, Cape Coral and Lehigh Acres.
Pediatric patients also will enjoy face painting and children’s games on March 2 and receive a silly Dr. Seuss hat.
