HAPPY BIRTHDAY DR. SEUSS
Happy Birthday, DR. Seuss. I can’t say Dr. Seuss without smiling and remembering all those wonderful stories he has written. I learned to read with Dick and Jane but not my children and grandchildren. They first learned the pleasure of reading from
Dr. Seuss, with books like Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, Horton Hears A Who, There’s A Wocket In My Pocket, Hunches In Bunches, Fox In Sox, Wet Pet, Dry Pet, One Fish Two Fish, Thidwick the Big Hearted Moose and How the Grinch Stole Christmas, just to name a few. Oh these books were so much more fun to read than Dick and Jane.
Dr. Seuss wrote some marvelous books for children, even big and old kids like me. I still love Dr. Seuss. His rhyming stories have become a part of the lives of just about all children today. Very few will tell you they do not know who Dr. Seuss is and they love him. Every year in our schools here we have a big Dr. Seuss Birthday Party where everyone gets involved with reading and even acting out the great tales of this famous author whose stories are not only fun to read but teach wonderful life lessons.
Dr. Seuss is Theodore Seuss Geisel and he was born on March 2, 1904 in Springfield, Massachusetts. He loved school and loved learning and sharing all the wonderful things he learned about. Dr. Seuss graduated from Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire and became a successful cartoonist and story teller over time but not without his share of rejection slips from the publishers. And to Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street was rejected 27 times before it found a publisher.
He had a lot of ups and downs before Random House Publishers finally latched onto him and asked him to write a beginner reader book with just 225 words, and that book became our beloved Cat In The Hat. From then on Dr, Seuss was a hit with children, teachers, librarians, moms, dads and grandparents too. We all love Dr. Seuss. Dr. Seuss wrote 44 children’s books before his death on September 24th, 1991 but he will live forever in the pages of his books and the hearts of children everywhere. Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss.
