School Librarian Saturday: Seussville
Where my school librarians at!
Wow, that came out much lamer than I thought.
In School Librarian Saturday, I’m going to share the websites, databases, apps, and other stuff I use with students in my K-5 teacher-librarian role, under the cover of internet darkness (see: the weekend).

Today we have a website dedicated to one of the most well-known book creators in the world, Dr. Seuss. It’s Seussville.
What It Is: As you would expect, Seussville is a place for all things Dr. Seuss. There are (supposed to be – more on that below) video clips and games featuring characters from Seuss books. There’s a books section that lists all the Dr. Seuss books. There are also parent and educator sections with further learning/teaching materials.
What’s Good About It: It appears to be a fun and interesting website.
What’s Bad About It: A lot. The games don’t work, and many of the links are broken.
Last Words: Unless there’s a major overhaul, stay away.
