( ENSPIRE Entertainment ) Christina Milian Celebrates Hats Off to Reading Alongside Dr. Seuss Enterprises and Random House Children’s Books with Special Reading of Green Eggs and Ham
Calling book lovers of all ages! Actress, singer, and songwriter Christina Milian is teaming up with Dr. Seuss Enterprises and Random House Children’s Books to commemorate Hats Off to Reading, an annual celebration that encourages the love of reading in young kids, with a very special reading of Green Eggs and Ham for The Birthday Party Project. The Birthday Party Project is a national non-profit organization that creates birthday experiences for children experiencing homelessness, and during the month of March, for every monetary donation made, Dr. Seuss Enterprises and Random House Children’s Books will be gifting one book to the organization. Christina Milian’s reading was specially created for the kids of The Birthday Party Project to enjoy, but Dr. Seuss fans everywhere are invited to check it out as well. You can watch it here.
“I’m so inspired by the work The Birthday Party Project has done to make a difference in the lives of kids experiencing homelessness,” Christina Milian said. “Their mission to ensure that every child knows that they are worth celebrating really resonates with me, as I’m a mom of three and fully understand that moments like this matter. I’m proud to support their mission and help spread some joy with this fun reading of one of our family’s favorites, Green Eggs and Ham!”
In addition to the donation campaign throughout the month of March, Dr. Seuss Enterprises and Random House Children’s Books are endeavoring to give the gift of reading to kids experiencing homelessness and transition through a financial donation to The Birthday Party Project. They will also provide a selection of Dr. Seuss books as birthday gifts for “birthday kids” at The Birthday Party Project’s agency partner-hosted parties, as well as a selection of Dr. Seuss books and a Happy Birthday to You! Big Book to use for story times and parties at participating agencies. There will also be a special edition promotional printing of Dr. Seuss’s Happy Birthday to You! activity booklets for a year’s worth of “Birthdays in a Bag,” a program The Birthday Party Project started during the pandemic to keep celebrations going without in-person events.
The Birthday Party Project is a Dallas-based organization that partners with more than 67 agencies across the country to bring joy through the magic of a birthday celebration to children experiencing homelessness. Those who would like to donate to The Birthday Party Project can do so on its website.
Christina Milian is the epitome of a multihyphenate with enterprises in music, fashion, food, television, and film. Born in New Jersey and raised in Waldorf, Maryland, Milian knew show business was for her immediately. Christina was signed to Island/Def Jam/UMG at the age of 18 and then booked her first lead role in 2003’s LOVE DON’T COST A THING. She then went right into BE COOL opposite John Travolta, Uma Thurman, and Vince Vaughn with F. Gary Gray directing. Currently, Christina stars as one of the leads of the upcoming Starz series STEP UP. She is the lead of the Alicia Keys produced feature film, RESORT TO LOVE, for Netflix.

With unmistakable characters and signature rhymes, Dr. Seuss’s beloved favorite, Green Eggs and Ham, has cemented its place as a children’s classic. Kids love the terrific tongue-twisters as the list of places to enjoy green eggs and ham gets longer and longer…and they might even learn a thing or two about trying new things! Green Eggs and Ham was also made into a hit animated TV series with season 1 and season 2 currently available on Netflix.
