WASHINGTON (CIRCA via MOBIUS.LAB) — It's that time of year again, March 2 to be exact! It's Dr. Seuss' birthday, the author who wrote "The Cat in the Hat."
In 1954, Life magazine published a report; many children were illiterate because their books were a bore.
Houghton Mifflin publishing approached Dr. Seuss for a book. He used 236 words and nine months' time it took.
They told him, "Bring back a book children can't put down." "The Cat in the Hat" was a hit, a success in every town.
His books were simple to read and teach, imaginiative and fun. He wrote many children's books for several years to come.
Selling over 600 million copies of his more than 60 children's publications, his work continues to amaze and inspire future generations.
Let's honor a legend who had so much to say. Happy birthday, Dr. Seuss, let's celebrate Read Across America Day!
This week we heard some news that left us really shook; in September there will be a brand-new Dr. Seuss book!
