Dr. Seuss Birthday Celebration Planned

There is a chance for everyone to celebrate a literary legend and help kids receive the gift of reading.

Spread the Word Nevada is teaming up with Barnes & Noble to throw two birthday parties for Dr. Seuss. The first will be at 11 a.m. Friday at the Barnes & Noble store at Sunset Road and Stephanie Street in Henderson. The second will be at 4 p.m. Friday at the Barnes & Noble store at Maryland Parkway and Flamingo Road.

There will be cake, hats and, of course, books. Spread the Word Nevada is reminding everyone to mention the organization when buying a book during the event. When customers say they are supporting the nonprofit, a portion of the proceeds will help go to the group.

Spread the Word Nevada works to buy books for needy kids in southern Nevada. It also provides literacy programs for kids and parents. Since it started, Spread the Word Nevada has given more than 1.9 million new or used books to around 230,000 low-income kids in southern Nevada.
