Who is Dr. Seuss?
Theodor Seuss Geisel was an American author and illustrator born to Bavarian immigrants in 1904. He had used the pen name “Dr. Theophrastus Seuss” in college, and later used Theo LeSieg and Rosetta Stone for non-children literary works. Most widely known under his pseudonym “Dr. Seuss”, he published 46 children’s books that are popular for their imaginative characters, rhyming, and word play. Most popular of his illustrated books is The Cat in the Hat, which has been a favorite childhood story for over fifty years. More importantly, his books often address important issues, such as the need to protect the environment, as depicted in The Lorax and The Butter Battle Book. Other popular Dr. Seuss books include The Grinch Who Stole Christmas!, Horton Hears a Who, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, Green Eggs and Ham, and many more. In celebration of Dr. Seuss’s birthday, March 2nd has been adopted as the National Read Across America Day, a reading initiative created by the National Education Association (NEA).
