Happy 110th birthday, Dr. Seuss! And Happy Read Across America Day!
We'll be celebrating tonight by reading a few of our most beloved Dr. Seuss stories including Too Many Daves from The Sneeches and Other Stories, Steak for Supper, and Bean and Roo's favorite, Tadd and Todd, both from The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories, all by Dr. Seuss.
And for dinner, you guessed it, green eggs and ham. Make that green peas and ham for Roo, but you get the idea.
Children's books provide such great inspiration for getting into the kitchen and creating something silly or spectacular together. Here are just a few of our favorite food-inspired reads.
