Read Across America Day: Time to bring out my hat

To the left, my black cat Starfire, shown in profile, faces a blue-and-gold striped 'Cat in the Hat' felt hat with a fabric-printed and quilted brown tabby cat appliqued onto it.

Time once again to bring out my “Cat in the Hat” hat for Read Across America Day, which is being observed on Monday, March 2 to commemorate the birthday of children’s author Dr. Seuss. I made this hat out of felt, and the appliqued cat is from a repurposed potholder. The lovely model is Miss Starfire.

The “Dr. Seuss Wall” (actually a length of paper from a newspaper end-roll) is up again in Bellview library too, and I’m hoping that staff, students, parents and visitors will share their favorite Dr. Seuss quotes.
