A big hello to my favorite readers! So.. This year March is a BIG month! But.. Before we hit St. Patrick's Day, Easter, or Spring break do's, don'ts and must's we have to honor the birth of the man that changed children's books forever! Yes, Dr. Seuss! I don't know about you guys but in my lime of work Dr. Seuss and his birthday are kind of a big deal!!! Instead of jumping straight into the party side of him, we're going to start with 5 Crazy facts most people didn't know ( including myself) about Dr. Seuss!
1.) His REAL name was Theodor Seuss Geisel, Born March 2, 1904
2.) He WAS NOT a doctor in any way shape or form! He didn't even have a doctorate until 1956 when his alma mater Dartmouth gave him an honorary one.
3.) He was married twice and never had his own kids, in fact he wasn't a fan of children. ( How ironic, he didn't like kids but made his money writing for them!)
4.) His books weren't always successful! His first book was turned down by 27 different publishers before he found one to take it!
5.) Dr. Seuss wrote green eggs and ham after making a bet with his publisher that he could write a whole book using only 50 words! ( He won)
So now that you've learned a thing or two about the legendary Dr. Seuss, Lets learn how to party in his honor! Love, The one and only... CC Blogger
