March 2nd is Dr Seuss’ birthday and to celebrate we’re sharing a fun Cat in the Hat dessert idea with you today! We loved Dr Seuss’ books growing up and we enjoy reading them to our children today.

One of our favorite books is the Cat in the Hat. Some of our other favorite Dr Seuss Books are Green Eggs and Ham, One Fish, Two Fish and Hop on Pop.
