Dr. Seuss Night
March 3 2:21 PM
Dr. Seuss Night “The more that you read, the more things you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
– Dr. Seuss

The famous children’s author, real name Theodor Geisel, was celebrated for his 110th birthday yesterday, March 2nd. In honor of his wacky words and bizarre characters we’ve all grown up to love, we’ve listed a few fun facts about the rhymes and illustrations of our dear Dr. Seuss. Thing 1, Thing 2

The famous Mulberry Street from Dr. Seuss’ first book, And to Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street, was a real street from Geisel’s childhood hometown. This was also Dr. Seuss’ first book, which was denied numerous times by publishers before published.

Seuss was the middle name of Theodor Geisel and he was not a real doctor.

Cat in the Hat used exactly 236 different words.

Oh, the Places You’ll Go was the final book written by Dr. Seuss.

Dr. Seuss was dared by his editor to write a book with only 50 words. He succeeded by writing the popular book, Green Eggs and Ham.

“You can find magic wherever you look.
Sit back and relax, all you need is a book!”
– Dr. Seuss
