Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

[ 0 ] March 1, 2012 |

Theodor Seuss Geisel was born March 2, 1904. We know and love him as Dr. Seuss. His whimsical rhymes and clever stories hold the same magic for my children as they did for me when I was a kid. I can remember the first Dr. Seuss books I owned – Cat in the HatOne Fish Two FishGreen Eggs and Ham…do you remember yours?

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go. – Dr. Seuss
