Celebrate Reading at the Springfield Museums: Dr. Seuss Bus Stopping Here July 1 & 2

Dr. Seuss’s Super-Dee-Dooper Bus is traveling across the country visiting bookstores, schools, libraries, and family-focused festivals, and it will stop at the Springfield Museums, Sunday, July 1, through Monday, July 2.

Right before the Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum opened a year ago, folks from the Super-Dee-Dooper Bus team came to visit to get some inspiration. “I can’t wait to see what they came up with,” said Springfield Museums President Kay Simpson.

The bus will feature a walk-through interactive exhibit starring Dr. Seuss’s books and characters, kid-friendly activities, photo-ops with the Cat in the Hat and more! The bus celebrates imagination and fun in the way that only Dr. Seuss can.

The bus is on the road in honor of the first-ever Dr. Seuss’s Word Challenge (#SeussWordChallenge) created to help prevent the summer reading slide. With a goal of reading 20 million Dr. Seuss words nationwide, people can enter the challenge via Seussville.com and track their progress from now until July 31.

“Fun and learning go hand in hand in the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss,” said Susan Brandt, President of Dr. Seuss Enterprises. “The Super Dee Dooper Bus Tour is an incredible way to bring this world directly to families across the country.”

Dr. Seuss’s books have been a mainstay in American culture for over 80 years. His books have sold over 650,000,000 copies in 95 countries and have been translated to 30 languages.
