One has to wonder if writer, cartoonist, book publisher and children’s book author, Theodor Seuss Geisel, ever thought he would be so celebrated 26 years after his death. Using the pen name Dr. Seuss for his children’s books, his works sold more than 600 million copies and were translated into many languages by the time of his passing. To commemorate his birthday on March 2, it has been proclaimed National Read Across America Day, with many students studying his life and enjoying his interesting and fun books.
