Students across America are celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday on Wednesday in the best way possible: by reading a book.
Dubbed "Read Across America," the famed author's birthday has become a celebration of literacy. Thousands of schools, libraries and community centers are celebrating the day, including many in San Diego County.
Dr. Seuss, whose real name was Theodor Geisel, died in 1991. He and his wife, Audrey Geisel, were longtime La Jolla residents and made a number of contributions to UC San Diego.
If he were still alive, Seuss would be 112 today.
