I don’t know about you but there are several times every week that my conversations (those that are both out loud and inside my head) contain some sort of seuss-ism. Dr. Seuss has inspired life lessons for more than just children.
I know of a company that requires their employees to read “Green Eggs and Ham”, a book that is made up of just 50 words to be used as a source of inspiration and persistence.
Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, knew all to well about not giving up. Dr. Seuss first book “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street” was rejected a total of 29 times before he found someone to publish it. Can you imagine a world without Dr. Seuss books?
Every year we look forward to watching the Dr. Seuss Classic “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!,” Musicals are based on his works and the word “nerd” was created by Dr. Seuss in his book “If I Ran the Zoo”. Just yesterday morning, I woke up to the sound of rain and thought “how am I going to keep my girls entertained on this cold, cold, wet day“. Yet another seuss-ism.
Today, March 2nd, is the 111th birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss). He wrote 46 children’s books, not including the new book “What Pet Should I Get?”, soon to be to be released on July, 28, 2015. He’s books have made such an impact that his birthday has been adopted by the National Education Association as the annual date for National Read Across America Day.
