From the smallest to the tallest—scholars of all ages will be delighted and surprised as they study the amazing life of Theodor Seuss Geisel. Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, is one of the most beloved children’s authors of all time. His perseverance (his first book was rejected by close to 30 publishers before finding a home); the variety and success of his work—writing, illustrating, advertising, fine art, sculpture, cartooning, filmmaking, and more; and his brilliant imagination and magical way with words make him one of the most fascinating individuals anyone could study.
On March 2, 2017, Dr. Seuss would have celebrated his 113th birthday! Find activities, crafts, and recipes for celebrating in his honor—or, celebrate your own special day, Dr. Seuss-style!
