Everybody loves Dr. Seuss and his books. Here are some fun facts about the infamous author, Theodor Seuss Geisel.
*He was born in Springfield, Massachusetts.
*He wrote and illustrated more than 44 children’s books.
*There were more than 27 publishers that rejected Dr. Seuss's books for being too silly. (I bet they regret that decision now!) However, it’s a great lesson for kids to learn about never giving up!
*Technically, he was not a Doctor -- although he held honorary degrees from several schools including Dartmouth College and Princeton University.
*Dr. Seuss had a secret closet with a stash of hats that he loved to show off at dinner parties. See some of those hats here. His parties must have been a hoot!
*Read Across America is celebrated on March 2nd which is Dr. Seuss’s Birthday.
*His family actually pronounced their Bavarian last name like Zoice (rhymes with voice), not Soose.
*Here's his famous signature!
