Join Us to Talk About Kids, Reading and Dr. Seuss

It's his birthday, so pick up a book, and read about this, and read about that, and read about me, said the Cat in the Hat.

What's the first book your parents read to you? Or that you read to your child?

WASHINGTON (CNN)– "I do not like green eggs and ham!" exclaimed first lady Michelle Obama Wednesday at the Library of Congress. No this wasn't the latest round in her mission to eliminate obesity in America but instead a push to get children to read. Mrs. Obama along with Education Secretary Arne Duncan celebrated the 107th birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss by reading one of his most popular books, "Green Eggs and Ham," to more than 300 elementary school children at a Read Across America event.

When I was a kid I was fixated on "Horton Hatches the Egg" and "The Little Engine that Could."
