Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss Print Email

March 2nd marks the 110th birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss. Born Theodor Seuss Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts, Seuss abandoned plans to earn a doctorate in literature and instead pursued his love of drawing.  He went on to write 46 children's books.  Seuss himself said, "You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read with a child," so celebrate this literary life by picking up a copy of Green Eggs and Ham, the author's most-read classic.  Laugh along while Sam-I-Am offers a plate of green eggs and ham to the frustrated unnamed narrator in all kinds of silly locations, from a house to a box and a tree to a train, and inspire a new generation of bookworms!
