Coming Attractions: Tributes to Dr. Seuss
It's all Seuss, all the time starting tomorrow.
In honor of Dr. Seuss's birthday -- he would have turned 108 on March 2 -- PBS KIDS is airing a special two-hour "The Cat in the Hat-a-Thon," complete with two new episodes of "The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!," tomorrow. (Check local listings.)
Not only that, but Nucleus gallery in Alhambra is kicking off its own celebration on March 3. "Look at This, Look at That: A Tribute to Dr. Seuss" will feature more than 35 artists paying homage to Dr. Seuss through various new interpretations of his art. The event runs through March 24.
And don't forget that "The Lorax" opens tomorrow in theaters! CC sure hasn't.
" 'The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!' is designed to help young children learn core science skills to prepare them for success in school -- while taking them on Seussian adventures that inspire their curiosity," said Lesli Rotenberg, senior vice president of children's media at PBS, in a statement.
CC loves the show, which is one that encourages her to ask lots of questions. Great for any little explorer!
If you're a Twitter fan -- I'm at @la_story -- stop by the social-media site tonight from 6 p.m.-7 p.m. PT. PBS KIDS is hosting a "Cat in the Hat"-themed Twitter party with Random House that will feature cool offerings. I'll be there, too! Find us at the hashtag #cithathon.
Whatever you choose, have a wonderful Seussian weekend!
