One man has done more to inspire kids to read books than arguably any other man in history. One man has imagined more silly contraptions and tongue-twisting compositions than any author ever dared. That wonderful genius of words and wisdom passed away in 1991 when he was 87, but because of the way his cultural contributions continue to motivate and inspire children of all ages, we celebrate his birthday to this day. Take someone you love to the Miami Children’s Museum (980 MacArthur Cswy., Miami) to celebrate the life and magic of Dr. Seuss. It’s his happy 110th birthday, and that’s a very special birthday indeed. There will be birthday cake, celebrity readings, performances, and plenty of Seussy activities. There will even be appearances from some of your favorite Seuss characters, and though we can’t say a whole lot about that, we’d bet you your hat there will turn up a cat. The event is sure to spark creativity in your heart and put a smile on your face, and thanks to the Children’s Trust, it’s free and open to everyone — even Sneetches without stars on their belly. The mischief begins at 10 a.m. Call 305-373-5437 or visit miamichildrensmuseum.org.
