HarperCollins Children’s Books is launching a new Read Aloud initiative to encourage beginner readers from across the globe to recite their favorite Dr. Seuss rhyme.
The competition, which runs until October 31, is being hosted online at www.seussreadaloud.com. Participants can choose to read from one of five Dr. Seuss books, including Fox in Socks and The Cat in the Hat, as well as watch sample videos, download extracts from Seuss stories and print objects suitable for video props.
Video submissions are being put to a public vote with the Dr. Seuss Grand Judging Panel selecting one winner from the group of finalists. The grand prize is a family vacation to Universal Orlando Resort and Seuss Landing in Florida. Other winners will receive an array of Seuss-themed prizes, including original prints from Chase Art, stovepipe hats, plush toys and carry-all bags.
