Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss

Every March, my students and I would celebrate Dr. Seuss and Read Across America Day. The week was filled with fun reading, writing, math, and art activities. I miss my teaching days.
This March, I will be one of the guest readers for my grandson’s class. I am so excited about this. Of course, I think a guest reader should walk in with a Seuss bag full of books and goodies. So, I got busy making a Japanese rice bag.
About four years ago, I bought a charm pack and a jelly roll with the Dr. Seuss characters. My plan was to make a quilt, but the fabric just got packed away. I unpacked them and used four of the charm squares and some jelly roll strips to make a Japanese rice bag. Since the bag will have three books and some favors in it, I made the blocks a bit larger. I framed the 6 inch blocks with 2 inch borders, making a 10 inch block.
I am looking forward to this big reading event!
