Every March 2nd, Reading Across America and Dr. Seuss’s birthday are celebrated simultaneously by many.

However, this will change as racist imagery has been found in six of his books. They include: “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street”, “If I Ran the Zoo”, “McElligot’s Pool”, “On Beyond Zebra!”, “Scrambled Eggs Super!” and “The Cat’s Quizzer”.

The National Education Association started advising educators to focus on diversity during Read Across America and to move away from making the day synonymous with Dr. Seuss’s birthday.
