Literacy has forever been an important topic in my family. My mother is an avid reader and an advocate for children literacy. Many of the books she purchased for the kiddos were some of my favorite Dr. Seuss stories. As Dr.Seuss Birthday approaches,March 2nd, We share how important literacy is in our family. This is why I am so excited to share how Walmart will be celebrating this great American Writer!
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss
Now thru 3/14 Walmart will have Dr. Seuss beginner books for $5, board books for $3.50 and classic titles for $10.
