Did you know the fabulous children’s author Dr. Seuss would be 112 this year?
While he is no longer with us, his legacy lives on in the pages of his ever-popular books. Seuss forever changed the way children’s books were written and continues to inspire generations.
Some Seuss-ical facts:
- If you want to pronounce the name the way his family did, say Zoice, not Soose.
- As a magazine cartoonist, he began signing his work under the mock-scholarly title of “Dr. Theophrastus Seuss” in 1927. He shortened that to “Dr. Seuss” in 1928.
- Dr. Seuss was not a doctor.
- For over half of his career as a children’s author, Dr. Seuss had no children.
- He joins Hans Christian Andersen, Astrid Lindgren, and Mark Twain as one of the very few writers for children to have his own public statue.
No-one wishes anyone a Happy Birthday better than Dr Seuss, so we found a copy of Happy Birthday to You written by the great man himself!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DR SEUSS!
