As you all know by now, last week was the official celebration of The Cat in the Hat’s 50th birthday. Yesterday, the Today Show did a really nice piece about Dr. Seuss and what motivated him to write a children’s book in fewer than 250 words. To wrap up the story, Chip Gibson (President of Random House Children’s Books), The Cat in the Hat, and Seuss characters Thing 1 and Thing 2 joined the Today Show hosts on the Plaza to talk about Project 236 and its support of First Book.
Remember, there’s still time to send The Cat a birthday card. Random House will send one book to First Book for every card it receives — up to TWO MILLION books!!! Please take a moment to help us reach this goal.
