I received a few replies on this topic.  They are as follows:

Hi! Here are some ideas for Dr. Seuss' ideas

1. Read aloud sessions of Dr. Seuss' books.
2. Bulletin board displays of his books.
3. Dr. Suess book party - a higlight of his life and works with games,
contest and read a loud session
4. Have a Dr. Suess Trivia Contest
5. Invite resource persons to talk about his works.

Show them the video of the Lorax and then have them list all the
occupations in it, and all the topics in it that could be researched.

This is our second year to try something on March 2nd - last year was kind of
a bust. So, here's what we are planning this year:
-"Chat Across America" - using AOL Instant Messenger, our school and four
other school libraries across the country (from Virginia to California) are
chatting for three hours about books, reading, authors, and our regions. I'm
also using it as an opportunity to talk about online safety and ethics with a
couple of classes. Thanks to LMNET, I got great responses from willing folks
in the midwest to try this project.
-An all day Readathon which will be broadcast from our school broadcast
studio. I asked community figures, teachers, students, etc. to sign up for
ten minute read aloud slots. Teachers will receive a schedule the week before
and make plans to tune in to whatever sounds good to them.
-An after-school reading party. 2 hours long, six stations, 20 minutes each
station. Stations include:
"Family Feud" game with bookish questions
"Be a star" (create a book ad in the broadcast studio)
"Win Lose or Draw" on a reading theme
Reading bingo
We are talking the party up and limiting attendance to 75, in the hopes that
that will make it sound very enticing!
