In March, the Bradford Tioga Head Start classrooms celebrated the 110th birthday of Dr. Seuss.
Some classes celebrated by having guests read their favorite Dr. Seuss book; others had a visit from the Cat in the Hat.
During the "Read Across America" activity in the Wyalusing Head Start class of Bradford Tioga Head Start, Dr. Seuss took center stage. Books such as "The Foot Book," "The Cat in the Hat," "There's a Wocket in my Pocket" and "Green Eggs and Ham" were read and a new fun activity occurred each day, such as crazy sock day, crazy hat day and wacky Wednesday. The week ended with the children all sampling green eggs and ham.

Many schools across the area annually celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday with programs that promote reading and rhyming for children.
Each Dr. Seuss book also teaches a lesson. Some books, like "Horton Hears a Who," teaches about protecting those that are smaller than themselves. "The Cat in the Hat" teaches children about right and wrong and "Green Eggs and Ham" teaches about acceptance.
Bradford-Tioga Head Start Inc. is a program which offers state and federally funded programs for pregnant mothers, families and their children, newborn up to the age of 5; this includes Early Head Start, Head Start and Pre-K Counts services.
