Dr. Seuss Birthday Celebration Kick Off – The Sneetches

Dr. Seuss Birthday Celebration Week - Crafts, Recipes and more

The Sneetches The Sneetches, while one of Dr. Seuss' lesser known books, carries a strong and important message of tolerance, acceptance, and respect for differences. I think beyond racism and discrimination, this book can also be a springboard for talks on bullying and treating others kindly no matter what. We will be celebrating what makes us the same as well as what makes us different. So, in honor of Dr. Seuss' upcoming birthday I have pulled together some snacks, activities, crafts, and Continue Reading

It's about community. Coming together to help those when they need you the most. Since State Farm is a "good neighbor"  you shouldn't have to ask for help. State Farm is actively looking to help your Continue Reading

I know it's not good for my hair, but I need to flat iron and blow dry. My hair needs it. I need it. Believe me, you don't want to Continue Reading
