Theodor Geisel, Theo LeSieg, Dr. Seuss...

Dr. Seuss is perhaps the most widely recognized children's book author ever published. I know that I grew up reading The Cat in the Hat , Green Eggs and Ham , and How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

No other children's author has created the rhythm and pulse that Seuss caries through each of his beloved short stories with excellent character creation and his own illustrations. Under the pen-name Theo LeSieg , Seuss...er...Geisel also published other books that were illustrated by other artists.

Most of Dr. Seuss' books are considered classics. Even though they were written years ago they are still on the best seller list and continue to be bought and sold every day! Every child should have at least one copy of these timeless treasures!

Did you know that the "National Read Across America Day" was dedicated to Dr. Seuss' Birthday, March 2? The National Education Association chose Geisel's birthday to commemorate his success as a children's author and to promote reading throughout the United States.

Take a look at the extensive Book List below and Consider Getting your Child into Reading at an Early Age with Dr. Seuss! It will pave the way for future success in your child's education.

      I agree with you that Dr. Seuss books are terrific and appear to be evergreen in the way we use the word here. My son and I plan on doing a skit that makes use of the Green Eggs & Ham - he will be 'Sam' and I will be the old man.

      Wow, I finally got a comment on this one! I published this Hub a long time ago-January 11, 2010! Phil Plasma, great point about "evergreen" in reference to what we mean by that here on HubPages. Dr. Seuss will never disappear and will always be interesting! Good luck with your skit and if you record it, maybe you could consider making a Hub about it! Thanks for the comment!

      Gosh, J.S., it's hard to believe you never got comments on this. Dr. Seuss rocks! I learned to read at home with my older brother reading Dr. Seuss books to me. As an adult, I bought a lot of the collection for myself! I love them, especially "Are You My Mother?" Of course, "Green Eggs and Ham" and "The Cat in the Hat" are classics. Nice hub. Brings good memories!

      hese books are all-time classics. A must for any family collection and good books to start young kids with in terms of helping them develop a habit of reading.

      @Victoria Lynn: I was kind of surprised as well but I wrote this a long time before I integrated the social aspect to HubPages (commenting and reading other Hubs, etc.) I actually have quite a few Hubs that have low traffic. I am grateful that you found this and left a comment!

      Hi Sunshine! Thanks for the follow by the way! I am glad you liked my Hub and appreciate your comment. I am curious as to why you don't like Dr. Seuss? Thanks for stopping by!

      You missed the Dr. Seuss trivia game in your list! My husband is a huge Seuss fan, so of course he had to buy it when it came out a few years ago. He also has a book of Dr. Seuss' political cartoons from WWII. I love Dr. Seuss too, especially the classic books. But you missed another one of my favorites, also -- My Many Colored Days. It's not as lighthearted as some of the others, and the art is not by Dr. Seuss, but it is a beautiful book that can really help young kids classify their emotional states.

      Thanks for pointing that out Brainy! You are quite observational! I figured that I was bound to forget something. No matter how much research, there's always something else! I do appreciate you pointing this out so that I can add these titles to the list. Thanks you very much! I always appreciate you stopping by and leaving insightful comments!

      Thanks Donna! I appreciate you Pinning and your votes and comment are priceless! This was an old Hub that I tried to improve after HubPages has been talking about making old Hubs better. There seems to be a lot of early Spring Cleaning on HubPages! I am jumping in hands first! Thanks for your comment!

      I love Green Eggs and Ham. Dr. Suess wrote this on a dare that he couldn't write a book using less than 50 words. These are classics in my house. Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Tammy! I didn't know that Dr Seuss was dared to do what he did best (write Bestsellers for years and years to come, while filling libraries of families!) I always appreciate when you stop by! Thanks for commenting!

      Wonderful, beautiful article! I am a Dr. Seuss fan and I agree with you 100%. Dr. Seuss books are a great way to teach youngsters or any one of any age to read. Not only do they teach reading, but they also teach life lessons, which I think is so important for children also.

      Dr. Seuss was a genius because he knew how to capture the imagination of children! Voted up, beautiful and interesting!

      Oh, and I also learned to read by Dr. Seuss books!

I appreciate your comments and votes very much! It's awesome that the good old Doctor taught you how to read! Thanks again!
