Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

Dr Seuss Memory

March 2 is the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel, known to most of us as , “Dr. Seuss.” His birthday is the inspiration for “Read Across America Day.’  Many schools, mine included, adopt this week as Dr. Seuss Week.  He is the author of forty-six children’s books also using the pen name, Theo LeSieg – which is Geisel spelled backwards.  There are so many of his books that bring back memories of childhood.  My all time favorite one is The Lorax,  because of the lesson or moral it taught, but actually, many of his books were written with a moral in mind.  Some more obvious than others.  He also used his books to express his opinion on social and political issues.  I found this on Wikipedia:

Many of Geisel’s books express his views on a remarkable variety of social and political issues: The Lorax (1971), about environmentalism and anti-consumerism; “The Sneetches” (1961), about racial equality; The Butter Battle Book (1984), about the arms race; Yertle the Turtle (1958), about Hitler and anti-authoritarianism; How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1957), criticizing the materialism and consumerism of the Christmas season; and Horton Hears a Who! (1954), about anti-isolationism and internationalism.[46][66]

In honor of his birthday, I decided to share some of my favorite Dr. Seuss quotes….there are so many it was hard to choose!
