Children in Conyers were transformed into a mythical world of 10-foot-beards, talking cats and green eggs on March 3, when the Conyers-Rockdale Library celebrated the 109th birthday of the late Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as “Dr. Seuss.”
“Dr. Seuss is a great author. He wrote nearly 50 books for boys and girls, and their families to enjoy together,” said Carolyn Cathey, manager of the library’s Youth Services Department. “We are happy to see families, the Rockdale County High School Beta Club and members of the community coming together to celebrate a great author and illustrator.”
Dozens of children made crafts and heard some of the late authors’ famous works such as “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street” and “Green Eggs and Ham.” Retired Rockdale County educator Mary Greco, wearing a Dr. Seuss hat, read the books to the children who attended.
“I home school my daughter, Karen, and when I read the flier at the library, I wanted to make sure we came out for this event,” said Christina Holcomb. “You can always catch good events like this one at our library.”
