Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Posted by on February 25, 2012 in Live Performances | 2 comments

There is a BIG day coming up soon that keeps getting BIGGER each year. That day is March 2 and it’s Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Hooray! And as if that wasn’t enough, it’s also “Read Across America” Day, which calls on every child and family in every community to celebrate reading. This makes the month of March “Read Across America” as well as “Read Across California” month.

But wait, that’s not all. Friday is also the release date for the new Lorax movie. Based on the book written by Dr. Seuss, it’s the story of an industrialized society and the danger it poses to nature. I saw the trailer and it’s looks good.

There are many fabulous festivities planned across our great country, but I’d like to mention a few of them that are taking place right here in our backyard. On Friday, the Belle Cooledge Library (starting at 3:30pm) is having a big party (with cake). Also on Friday, the Fair Oaks Library (starting at 4:00pm) is having a birthday bash for my favorite doctor. What better place could there be to celebrate reading than your neighborhood library?

On Saturday, March 3, Fairytale Town is planning a fantastic celebration called “Read Across Fairytale Town” with a Dr. Seuss theme. Activities and crafts will be presented to all. The topic of music and literacy will be discussed during two musical performances by you know who. I’ve learned two authentic Dr. Seuss songs (written by him in 1967) for the occasion. I’ll be starting the songs at 12:00pm and 2:00pm. Hopefully, you can join in with the fun. And be sure to sing along…

In other news, I have been asked to perform the children’s music entertainment again this summer for the “Music In The Park” concert series. More information will be coming later, but be sure to circle Sundays, June 24 and August 26 on your calendar.

Please remember to check the “Live Performances” page for all dates and times. Just click the link at the top of this page. It’s all good. Thank you all for your continued support of my music. I hope to see you soon. Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!


  1. This is going to be a really cool event. Hope all can make it.

  2. Mister Cooper did two great shows Saturday at Fairytale Town. There was an emphasis on literacy throughout both shows in his music. We hear these songs all the time throughout the week and at the library….but have we thought of their place and how they affect the developing brains of our children? We had a good time. Great job!
