There is no denying that Dr. Seuss and his wonderful stories has made an impact on everyone, both big and small. The books that my mom and dad read to me when I was little I now read to my girls. They are classic stories that will continue to last for generations.
In celebration of Dr. Seuss’ birthday on March, 2 I wanted to do something special for my girls who are huge fans of his. Rather than getting them a shirt with their favorite Dr. Seuss character on it, I wanted to create outfits inspired by their favorite characters. They helped me narrow it down to their top five favorites and I helped put the looks together.
So no matter if you have a little boy or little girl who loves Dr. Seuss, here is some inspiration to help them look like their favorite character.
Sam I Am 1 of 5
Green Eggs and Ham is one of my all-time favorite Dr. Seuss books to read to my girls. We love it so much that they even ask me to make them green eggs and ham as a meal. Sam is a lovable character that pushes us to try new things even if we don't think we will like them.
