Today In Literary History: Dr. Seuss

Notes_from_Ashley

Born March 2, 1904, reading for children would now be an adventure,

Encouraging them to go out and explore!

Children’s books were about to be changed, as this author would surely rise to fame. Novelist, cartoonist, and poet, that takes some skill, and you know it!

Fun fact: He’s not a cat who wears a hat, but he did invent that.

His books teach many children valuable lessons, of course if they’re willing to listen.

Maybe he will introduce them to the wonders of green eggs and ham, and if they are lucky, they’ll get some from someone named Sam.

Perhaps he (with help from the Grinch) will even teach them that Christmas does not come from a store, because we all know that is such a bore.

This author goes by Ted, and his books have been very well read.

However, he is known and loved as Dr. Seuss; his books make us feel like a silly goose!

We hope this blog was worth your while, so please enjoy and don’t forget to smile.
