Dr Seuss Day is celebrated on the 2nd March each year. While in the USA this day is celebrated as Read Across America Day, the 2nd of March marks Dr Seuss’s birthday. Wherever you are from or which ever event you choose it celebrate, it is the perfect opportunity to promote the wonderful written creations of the very clever Dr Seuss.
Grinch Christmas Display
Christmas time is nearing and that means putting up the Christmas tree, making wreaths, digging out the Christmas books for display, decorating the library and tinsel. Lots of tinsel.
This is the Christmas-themed display for the school library entrance this year. This quote from How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss is well known, and the students recognise the Grinch both from the book and the movie.
I made this display using a variety of free Christmas fonts and a whole lot of red and green cardboard. It is bright and looks great opposite a display of Christmas books. But maybe it needs some tinsel…
Oh, The Places You’ll Go With A Book
Based on the brilliant Dr Seuss title Oh, The Place You’ll Go, this display hopes to capture some of its whimsy and charm.
The original idea for this hanging display came from the large number of 3D balloon, raindrop, clouds and umbrella mobiles available on the net. The balloons look fantastic on-mass, especially when they blow in the wind.
The display makes use of the large amount of hanging space available over the circulation desk and the four windows behind the desk. It is easily adaptable for any display space.
This display was also going to incorporate a window painting of the coloured, ringed landmass found on the front cover of Oh, The Places You’ll Go. However, as this display will soon have to make way for Book Week displays, it was decided it wasn’t worth the extra work.
