Dr. Seuss comes alive at the German-American Heritage Center!

There are few things more hilarious than the beloved comedic writing of the late Dr. Seuss. From our first exposure to stories as an infant to laughing hysterically at the charm that the stories provide in our first early reading steps to a smile of reminiscence at the silly-yet-poetic rhymes of Dr. Seuss fill all of us with a sense of child-like splendor.
