A person’s a person, no matter how small

Students at Davidson Day School celebrated the 108th birthday of renowned children’s author Dr. Seuss on March 2 with green eggs and ham and red-and-white striped hats.
The day kicked off when the school’s youngest children strolled the halls of Davidson Day dressed as their favorite Dr. Seuss characters in this year’s “Seussical” parade.
“Dr. Seuss really wanted to make reading exciting for all children,” said Dana Sommer, the school’s early childhood education program coordinator. “His books encourage kids to learn how to read by using silly rhyming words, vivid colors, creative characters and tons of imagination.”
Lower School Head Wes Wehunt joined the party and helped students whip up some green eggs and ham. Throughout the day students learned how to create rhyming words and measure “Sneetches,” creatures from Seuss’ book “The Sneetches and Other Tales.” The celebration ended with a weekend trip to
