Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!! Theodor Seuss Geisel would have been 113 years old if he were still alive, and I am sure many of us wish he still were creating his amazing books! Whether your memories come from childhood reading, or you became a fan later in life, most of us can think back to a time that includes a Dr. Seuss story. I found a few fun facts about him, such as adopting the pen name of Dr. Seuss because he, “was saving his real name for his Great American Novel he intended to write”, or that “The Cat in the Hat” was written because he was concerned about kids learning to read. You can read more fun facts here.

I got to thinking about what his most popular, all time bestselling books are, while some did not surprise me, others were not so familiar. I was surprised that “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” was only his 9th most bestselling, “Oh The Place’s You’ll Go!” the fifth, and “The Cat in the Hat” was second. His all-time best selling, well you will have to read that here.
