Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! Some fun facts!

Dr. Seuss’s birthday is celebrated on March 2 and it celebrates both the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel and the National Education Association to endorse the importance of reading.

Theodor Seuss Geisel was born on March 2, 1904, in Springfield, Massachusetts. He started writing children’s books in the 1950s under the pen name “Dr. Seuss,” which he continued to write until his death on September 24, 1991.

Green Eggs and Ham was Dr. Seuss’ best selling book, and it was written as a result of a bet that he couldn’t write a book using 50 or fewer distinct words.

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,Nothing is going to get better. It’s not. – Dr. Seuss

The words “grinch,” “nextly,” and “nerd” are all attributed to Seuss in the Oxford English Dictionary, where he at one point was enrolled in the English literature program.

My all-time favorite Dr. Suess book is, Oh, The Places You’ll Go – Cheri Cranford , Founder and CEO
