Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

March 2, 2011

“A person’s a person, no matter how small.” 

Dr. Seuss is without a doubt the most influential children’s book writer and storyteller of all time. His books will never go out of style or be irrelevant to the times. He was a master storyteller, poet, and role model to children across the world. In all, Dr. Seuss published 44 children’s books, including icons such as The Cat in the Hat, The Lorax, Green Eggs and Ham, and The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. Dr. Seuss won numerous awards in his lifetime, including a Pulitzer (1984), an Academy Award, three Emmy Awards, three Grammy awards, and three Caldecott Honors.

My son is 20 months old, and he has just recently started to really get into Dr. Seuss books. I love that he is starting to love these books. I love reading them to him over and over. There’s a Wocket in My Pocket is one of his current favorites. I laugh every time I read this book to him. My personal favorites are Oh The Places You’ll Go and The Lorax.

Happy 107th Birthday Dr. Seuss. Thank you for everything you did to contribute to the literacy of children all over the world. You were a great man, and an inspiration to children and adults.
