Dr. Seuss Marathon Today and Info/ideas for Any Day

Product DetailsI just realized there is a Dr. Seuss Movie marathon on ABC Family (it's Channel 180 on DISH Satellite TV, and we're in Pacific Time here)today!. Right now it's "The Lorax" and following will be the animated short classics, "The Cat in the Hat" and the Grinch Grinches..." and then the super funny Jim Carrey movie, "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas."
     I'm going to use them for lessons too. If you read this after they air, though, don't fret. You can still catch most all of them here:
Dr. Seuss Movies
Plus I'll be adding some homeschool and just plain fun activity ideas here as time goes on and soon, so keep your eye out please. Meanwhile, if you want to look into more Dr. Seuss backup materials you might need, you can check out:

Of course there are always the classic books, of which we have several and you can also find some here: Dr. Seuss Books
 And keep in mind this special Amazon has right now: Cats, Hats, and Whos, All Three for Two!
Dr. Seuss is on the loose with stories galore, rhymes, and more. For a limited time, buy two Dr. Seuss books and receive a third free (restrictions apply). Pick three books from our list of eligible titles and receive the lowest-priced item free (discount will be applied at checkout). Visit our Dr. Seuss page to learn more about the man behind Green Eggs and Ham.
