They enjoyed characters, cotton candy, and of course lots of reading all to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday.

The event was organized by Valdosta State University students as a way to promote literacy.

"His books are great because not only do they encourage children to read, but most Dr. Seuss books have a deeper message," says
