DWU’s Dr. Seuss Carnival Returns with High Attendance Expected

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

The Dakota Wesleyan University Future Teachers’ Organization will host its 16th annual Dr. Seuss Carnival from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, March 22, in the L.B. Williams Commons Area.


Children ages preschool through sixth grade are all invited to participate in the event, which is free. Children can participate in reading and games in order to earn tickets to redeem for various prizes. Each child who joins in the festivities will receive a free book just for attending. Adults must accompany children at the carnival.


“The Dr. Seuss Carnival is a way for the future teachers in our education department to help the community celebrate the work of Theodor Seuss Geisel and the astonishing impact he has had on generations of young children,” said Justin Zajic, assistant professor of education at DWU. “The works of Dr. Seuss inspire young children to read and grow their imagination through stories, rhymes, and wacky illustrations.”


“Our volunteers are busy ordering books, prizes, and creating games for our guests. Last year we had over 400 children at the carnival and we hope to get at least that many this year,” Zajic said.
