In Celebration of the Holiday Season, Retailer Offers Exclusive Collector’s Editions of Popular Dr. Seuss® Books and Matching Plush Characters

MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis., – Just in time for the holidays, Kohl’s Department Stores is bringing classic stories into its stores. Kohl’s is excited to offer customers exclusive collector’s editions of the following Dr. Seuss® books: The Sneetches; One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish; Green Eggs and Ham; and How the Grinch Store Christmas. Kohl’s is also offering the corresponding plush stuffed animals.

Kohl’s has chosen Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital as a beneficiary of the Kohl’s Cares for Kids program. Through the program, Kohl’s has donated more than $120,000 to Packard Children’s to support programs including the Maggie Adalyn Otto Safely Home Car Seat Fitting Station. This program offers a child passenger fitting station for patient families as well as the immediate community. Certified technicians offer advice on choosing and installing the appropriate safety seat and answer any questions regarding car seat installation.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer this special edition collection of Dr. Seuss books and plush to our customers,” said Julie Gardner, senior vice president and chief brand officer for Kohl’s. “By buying and sharing these timeless stories, shoppers will help raise millions of dollars for our Kohl’s Cares for Kids program nationwide.”

The collector’s edition Dr. Seuss books feature entertaining stories and brightly-colored illustrations that have introduced generations of children to the joy of reading.

The Sneetches: This imaginative story and whimsical rhyme resonate with readers young and old as they ponder such questions as “which is better — a Star-Belly Sneetch or a Plain-Belly Sneetch?”

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish: This simple yet silly book introduces beginning readers to fantastic and funny creatures with vibrant illustrations.

Green Eggs and Ham: One of the most beloved Dr. Seuss tales, readers are offered quirky choices as Sam-I-Am tries to rely on his taste buds rather that his eyes, to eat eggs an unusual shade of green.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas: A holiday favorite about the famous grinch who has plans to steal Christmas from a joyful community until the holiday spirit embraces him as well.

In addition to the Dr. Seuss books and plush, Kohl’s is offering an exclusive holiday CD containing holiday favorites performed by legendary Ray Charles. The CD, available only at Kohl’s, features 12 holiday selections including What Child is This, Baby It’s Cold Outside and many more.

In addition to supporting children’s health and educational opportunities, the Kohl’s Cares for Kids program features a gift card fundraising opportunity for local schools and non-profit youth groups, the Kohl’s Kids Who Care® scholarship program, which recognizes kids who contribute through volunteerism to their local communities, and the associate volunteer program, which encourages volunteerism to benefit local youth-focused nonprofit organizations.
