What Was I Scared Of?

Event Details

To celebrate Dr. Seuss’s March 2nd birthday, which is also known as Read Across America Day in his honor, we will read a special glow-in-the-dark re-edition of 1961’s What Was I Scared Of? After that, we will read from Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now! (Fun trivia: following its altered publication in the July 30, 1974 issue of the Washington Post, in which Seuss had scratched out ‘Marvin K. Mooney’ and replaced it with ‘Richard M. Nixon,’ Theodore Seuss Geisel often gave himself credit for Nixon’s resignation 10 days later!) Finally, we’ll end with the always fun Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? Get ready to make some noise!

Lanie DeLay has worked at Dallas Contemporary, the Dallas Public Library, Hamon Arts Library at SMU, at area preschools and the School For The Blind in Austin. She has written for Glasstire and Art&Seek, and she tutors children in early reading skills at Dealey Montessori. When she isn’t looking at art or reading with kids, she’s reading about art or looking for a new read.

It’ll be a 45 minute read followed by a short discussion with the kids–that’s going to be interesting, we can’t wait to see what they come up with.

All ages are welcome.

On Saturday morning bring your kids and infuse them with a love for reading.
