Happy Dr. Seuss Day. Today is his birthday (as near as we all can tell). March 2, 1904 – September 24, 1991. Fascinating career.
Did you know he wrote Cat in the Hat in response to a Life magazine article and a challenge? The article explained the kids of the day were not learning or reading because all of the current books were boring. Then some guy at a publishing house created a list of 348 words he thought were important for 1st-graders to know and asked Dr. Seuss to trim it down and make a book.
He did with only 236 words.
So many great books. Which one is your fav?
