Dr. Seuss understood that every child (and most adults) wants to feel special, especially on his or her birthday. So with that in mind, Dr. Seuss gave all readers a magical present when he introduced the Birthday Bird from Katroo, where birthday celebrations are nothing short of amazing! (Just like the imagination of Dr. Seuss.) The good doctor recognized that everyone has a reason to celebrate, because “Today is your birthday! Today you are you! There is no one alive that is you-er than you!”
Tie-in Activity: Instead of a good-night story, start a birthday tradition by reading this as a good-morning story on your child’s special day.
