(St. Joseph, Mo.)— Youngsters and their parents got to celebrate a big birthday this Saturday.

The United Way of Greater St. Joseph's Success by Six program held a birthday brunch and celebration for beloved children's author Dr. Seuss.

Families got to participate in early literacy activities such as alphabet games, crafts and storytelling.

There was even a complete brunch served with of course, green eggs and ham.

"We want to make sure that Dr. Seuss carries on what he's done. He really specified in the bright colors, the fun," said Jay Martin of the United Way of Greater St. Joseph. "He covered so many things and so many different topics. He just wasn't down to doing a couple of different things, he covered a wide spectrum of topics."

Each child in attendance also received a free Dr. Seuss book to take home and read to their parents.

The next Success by Six event in April will take place at the Missouri Department of Conservation Office in St. Joseph.

Rain showers continue through the morning and early afternoon on Monday. Once they pass, our winds shift back to the north and pick up speed. Afternoon wind gusts could top 25 mph. The winds will usher in cooler temperatures for the first half of the work week, with highs in the middle to upper 30s through Thursday. Then the weekend will warm up dramatically with highs in the 50s.
