Thanks to a collaboration between Atmos Energy and the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy, NICA was able to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ Birthday on March 2, 2016. NICA decorated every room to correspond with the theme of one of the four books that were read. These books were the Cat In The Hat, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, Green Eggs and Ham and The Foot Book. When reading these books the children were able to interact with fun activities to make them feel as if they were a part of the book. There were fishing games, eatable green eggs and ham, and the children were also able to make their own hats! The day was filled with fun and a lot of laughter.
