Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
Today Consumer Queen wishes Dr. Seuss a happy birthday! Although he is no longer with us, his fabulous books live on in the hearts of children and adults alike!
One of our favorite books is of course “Green Eggs and Ham”, but who can forget “Horton Hears a Who” and “Cat in the Hat”.
Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known to the world as the beloved Dr. Seuss, was born in 1904 on Howard Street in Springfield, Massachusetts. Ted's father, Theodor Robert, and grandfather were brewmasters in the city. His mother, Henrietta Seuss Geisel, often soothed her children to sleep by “chanting” rhymes remembered from her youth. Ted credited his mother with both his ability and desire to create the rhymes for which he became so well known.
At the time of his death on September 24, 1991, Ted had written and illustrated 44 children's books, including such all-time favorites as Green Eggs and Ham, Oh, the Places You'll Go, Fox in Socks, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. His books had been translated into more than 15 languages. Over 200 million copies had found their way into homes and hearts around the world.
Happy Birthday Dr Seuss! May your legacy live on 🙂
