My Dr. Seuss Read Across America school assembly show is a tribute to Theodore Seuss Geisel and has become one of my most popular school assembly programs, particularly at this time of the year. The truth is, the assembly program is a great way to kick off the school year or as a reading reward incentive ideas for students who have met certain reading goals like AR or Bluebonnet. The show is a fun, whimsical production filled with more magic tricks than any other show I do. Like most of my shows, I include several short book talks, obviously focusing on books written and illustrated by Dr. Seuss.
However, this is also an educational school assembly program, so there will be new insights students will pick up and even a few things that your most experienced teachers might not know; like the story behind the dedication Seuss made to his father in the front of McElligot's Pool or the challenge from a fellow children's author that spawned GreenEggs and Ham.
If you'd like to learn more about this show or any of our others, check out the web site of Texas author Julian Franklin or watch me describe the show in more detail in this short Dr. Seuss Tribute Show video clip.
