This is the second part of 3 posts that I did on Dr. Seuss back in 2019. After part 3 is republished, I will do an over view and try to include some of the controversy behind Dr Seuss. I think you can see why Dr. Seuss might be controversial, not that I agree, but as with anything – a person needs to keep such things in context.
Hope you enjoy!

All of the info and images in this post come from the book “Dr. Seuss Goes To War” by Richard H. Minear. The photos are mine, but the images are Dr. Seuss’.
There is so much information in this book, I could probably keep going until the end of the year. But, I’m not going to. I got the book from the library, so when it’s due is when I will stop and move on…at least for the time being!
This will be a quick and easy read, hope you enjoy and maybe learn something you didn’t know about Dr. Seuss.

And remember that life is a great balancing act.”
