Everyone from The Lorax and Horton to The Cat in the Hat showed up to be a part of this year's Children's Art and Literature Festival.
The event took place in the open field of the Frontier Texas museum.
To encourage kids to pick up a book, there were many Seuss-themed activities that reflected the main theme of the featured book.
For example, there was the Hustle Your Muscle activity that educated kids on the importance of physical health and taking care of our bodies.
Hardin-Simmons students in the Physical Therapy department volunteered to help run these activities and talk to kids about why they should eat healthy and get moving.
"We just want to promote the body and what goes on with our bodies," student Laura Rawlings said. "It's important to get active and get outside and play."
But Hardin-Simmons students weren't the only volunteers.
Coordinator Nany Roberts said that there were many local businesses that contributed to the festival.
"There's the Abilene Teacher's Credit Union that planted pennies and they get to dig for money in the hay and keep what they find. May Farm with the petting zoo and Day Nursery who is making top hats for 'Hats off to Dad' for Father's Day," Roberts said.
This annual event is to promote art and literature in children and does so with interactive themes to get the kids interested.
