Next week is Dr. Seuss’ birthday! Theodor Seuss Geisel was born in 1904 so this year would be his 110th birthday! As a child he liked to draw. As a child Theodor enjoyed drawing. After he graduated from high school and from college he used his skills to sell cartoons. He was also hired to illustrate advertisements.
In 1937 Dr. Seuss wrote To Think I Saw it on Mulberry Street. It was the first of over 60 books he wrote. More than forty were written and illustrated by Geisel for children. His books written with poetic patterns and rhymes began a new trend in literature. His books were fun to read and many had simple words that helped students learn to read.
It is true that Geisel was challenged to write a book using fewer than 50 words. The result is one of our favorites: Green Eggs and Ham!
