appearance at Knoxville Zoo on Saturday, March 12, from 10:00 a.m.

Visitors can meet the most famous Dr. Seuss character of all and pose for
photos with The Cat in the Hat himself at the Encounter Village stage.
Little visitors can also participate in fun Seussical-inspired activities, too!

children's curiosity about the natural world and each episode takes them
on an adventure to make their own discoveries. The series also
encourages kids to visit their local libraries, science museums,
aquariums, parks and zoos to continue their science explorations. "The
