Celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday with the Grinch and a roomful of first graders

On March 1, Pamela Marsden (the Center for Creativity's Program Director) and Cheryl Posner (Executive Director) visited Arica Dowd's first-grade class at Orange County Educational Arts Academy in Santa Ana to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday.

After telling the pajama-clad students about Chuck Jones' friendship with Dr. Seuss–and how that friendship led to the creation of the 1966 animated holiday classic, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, based on Dr. Seuss' 1957 children's book–Pam read the book out loud, much to everyone's enjoyment.  And then, we all watched the cartoon together.

What a wonderful way to celebrate a birthday!
