Happy Birthday to Dr. Seuss!
What inspired Dr. Seuss’s beloved classic that forever changed children’s books? More than 50 years ago, Ted Geisel (Dr. Seuss) accepted his publisher’s challenge and wrote a primer with real kid appeal. Ted was given a list of 223 easy-to-read words and after a year of work the book was published in 1957. It was an instant hit, and continues today to entertain and to help young readers connect to the printed word.
Visit our library and check out a Dr. Seuss or Theo LeSieg (Geisel spelled backwards) book to read with your children. Older “children” will enjoy You’re Only Old Once,
Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, The Lorax (a statement about pollution),
