California is a wonderful state full of beautiful animals, splendid habitats, and vibrant vistas. When you look closer inside the borders of this great state you will also find it is also home to a great many entertainers, scholars, and writers. One such great writer that was not only influential, but also a brilliant children’s storybook writer named Theodor Geisel, or rather Theodor Seuss Geisel, the great Dr. Seuss!
Welcome to California! I am proud to join the Booking Across the USA again this year run by Jodie at Growing Book by Book to take you all on a trek across all of the 50 states. When many think of California they might not think of the storybooks of Dr. Seuss, but he was a fondly remembered resident of not only this fair state I call home, but also of the county where I live, San Diego. He lived and wrote many of his books here in California. Some of the great books he wrote in San Diego were If A Ran A zoo, Horton Hears a Who!, If I Ran a Circus, The Cat in the Hat, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and Green Eggs and Ham while living in California.
Since I live rural, he resided almost on the entirely opposite side of the county in the jewel by the sea that is La Jolla. The fun words and stories of Dr. Seuss have been shared by all, loved by many, and cherish by multiple generations. Our home has a lot of Dr. Seuss books in it and his Cat in the Hat even adorns our school room walls. So, let’s get out and have some hands-on fun learning about not only Dr. Seuss, but also animals and habitats in the state of California. We chose a fun book for this with Thidwick The Big-Hearted Moose by Dr. Seuss. We love this book and want to share some fun we have had from reading it over and over again.
The one thing that we absolutely love about this storybook is that animals essentially live on, in, and with Thidwick. This means that he becomes a revolving and ever changing habitat. A habitat is a place for an animal to call home and Thidwick is a duelly Seussian habitat that is fun for all. So, why not read this fun storybook and then have fun reinforcing your knowledge of habitats and animals with a fun game or two of my FREE California Animal Habitat Storybook Game!
FREE California Habitat Storybook Game
The FREE California Habitat Storybook Game is designed to teach children and students about four really interesting animals and their habitats in California. Beck, Elizabeth, and I choose to include a diverse group of animals just like those that came to roost with Thidwick. We chose the Dog Faced Butterfly, Golden Trout, Grizzly Bear, and the Valley Quail. These animals live in the scrub brush, rivers, mountains, and fields of California. This fun game helps children match animals to their habitats an uses a fun hands-on game as well. Combine this fun hands-on game with coloring fun and your children or students are sure to learn all about these California animals and their associated habitats.
