• Columbia Orthodontics Celebrates Read Across America Day

  • Today is the National Read Across America Day which is celebrated on March 2 for Dr. Seuss’ Birthday.

    This is an annual event that is a motivational and awareness day, calling all children and youth in every community across the United States to celebrate reading.

    In honor of Dr. Theodor Seuss Geisel an American writer and cartoonist. He was most widely known for his children’s books, which he wrote and illustrated under the pseudonym Dr. Seuss.

    Here’s one of our favorite poems with a verse we added just for Columbia Orthodontics


    By Dr. Seuss

    You have brains in your head.
    You have feet in your shoes.
    You can steer yourself
    Any direction you choose.
    You’re on your own. And
    you know what you know.
    And YOU are the guy who’ll
    decide where to go.
    You’ll get mixed up,
    of course, as you already know.
    You’ll get mixed up with
    many strange birds as you go.
    So be sure when you step.
    Step with care and great
    tact and remember that
    Life’s A Great Balancing Act.
    And will you succeed?
    Yes! You will, indeed!
    (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed.)
    So smile when you get there.
    Whether its a camp or a fair.
    Your teeth all white and great
    And completely straight.
