Reading: Dr. Seuss

Sept. 5, 2019

Dr. Seuss is one of my favorite authors! I grew up reading his books, I learned to read with his books. Who didn’t?

I have an extensive collection of his books, but not all of them. My son, this year for my birthday got me one of his books. My favorite is probably Fox in Socks.

But I’m not going to ramble on about nonsense.

I won’t do it!

No, I wont!

Instead, I will give you some facts!

Dr. Seuss was born March 2, 1904 in Springfield , Mass.

His parents were Theodore Robert Geisel and Henrietta Seuss Geisel. His given name was Theodor Seuss Geisel.

He died Sept 24, 1991 in La Jolla, Cal.

Now onto some fun facts:

  • He Wrote “Green Eggs And Ham” On A Dare! Challenged by his publisher to write a book using only 50 different words, Dr. Seuss decided to tell the story of a picky eater (like many of the children reading his books) who continues to refuse the colorful food offer.
  • He Produced Cartoons For The Army During WWII As the commander of the Animation Department of the First Motion Picture Unit of the United States Army Air Forces, he produced propaganda and training films, including one about a bumbling solider named Private Snafu.
  • “The Grinch” Movie Was A Flop At First Now one of the most popular family holiday flicks, the movie was originally panned by critics at Variety despite Dr. Seuss teaming up with Looney Tunes legend Chuck Jones for the animation.
  • He Thought Children’s Books Were Too Boring The mischievous plot of The Cat in the Hat was inspired by what Dr. Seuss felt was a boring, overly simplistic Dick and Jane book series. Rather than attempting to enforce morality lessons, Dr. Seuss embraced the chaos with his titular cat.
  • He Was The First Person To Use The Word “Nerd” He may have been first, although it meant something completely different in If I Ran the Zoo. Instead of referring to a brainiac, the “nerd” was described as a white-haired, red-and-yellow “sourpuss.”

Hope you enjoyed and possibly learned something new!

“Oh the things you can find, if you don’t stay behind!” – Dr. Seuss

(I think this will be ongoing

I will continue to post here and there!)
