Dr. Seuss epitomizes a love of children and learning. His use of rhyme makes an effective tool for teaching young children the basic skills needed to be successful in an ever changing world. Embracing Dr. Seuss' Differences Day celebrates Dr. Seuss and reading, sending a clear message to our children that reading is fun and important while stimulating conversations regarding diversity, bullying and respect for others.
The 2016 Annual Embracing Our Differences Luncheon was held on Wednesday, December 14, 2016 at Michael's On East ballroom. The luncheon helped kick off the 14th Annual outdoor art exhibit celebrating diversity which will be on display at Sarasota's Island Park.
