Familiar Faces in Cat in the Hat hats

Children and their families came to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday at a party February 29th and March 1st at Santa Fe Public Libraries with Storyteller Daniel Gonzales portraying the character “Cat In the Hat”

Mayor Coss helped by reading “The Cat In the Hat” on Friday at Southside, while Daniel acted out the story. Some of the children were invited to help the “Cat In the Hat” with finger puppets while he read “Happy Birthday” by Dr. Seuss. Drawings were held for Dr. Seuss books and Library Director Pat Hodapp donated her Dr. Seuss hat to be given away at the drawing as well.

After the stories, the children played “Pin the Green Eggs on the Green Ham” and children designed their own Dr. Seuss characters. And of course what is a birthday party without cake? Everyone was in the party mood for cake and goodies to remember Dr. Seuss on his special day.
