Do Green Eggs & Ham, Thing 1 & Thing 2, and how about the Grinch, mean something to you?

On March 2ndin 1904, Theodor Geisel, better
known as Dr. Seuss, and the author of some of the most memorable and popular children’s books, was born in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Geisel graduated from Dartmouth University and then went on to study also at Oxford University, where he met his first wife, Helen Palmer.

It was HelenPalmer who encouraged Geisel to become a professional Illustrator.

The first book Geisel wrote and illustrated, “And to Think I saw It on Mulberry Street,” was rejected by more than two dozen publishers before making it into press and becoming his first best seller.

Geisel went on to write 48 books and sold over 200 million copies, which have been translated into multiple languages, across the world. Some of his most popular books were “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish,” “Fox In Socks,” and “The Cat In The Hat.”

He lived and worked in an old observatory in La Jolla, California known as “The Tower,” and died September 24, 1991, at age 87.
