THE CREATIVE DR SEUSS

Dr Seuss. A playful imagination

You’re wrong as the deuce

And you shouldn’t rejoice

If you’re calling him Seuss.

He pronounces it Soic

Dr Seuss’s mother, Henrietta Seuss Giesel, soothed her children to sleep by chanting rhymes from her youth.

This natural past time inspired her son Ted to carry on the tradition through his writings of the many wonderful children’s books that he wrote under the name of “Dr Seuss”

Theodore Seuss Giesel was born on March 2nd 1904 in Springfield Massachusetts and died on September 24th, 1991 in San Diego, California.

Dr Seuss wrote many books and on the basis of a dare, he wrote one of his milestone books A Cat in The Hat, which he based on a report that children were bored when reading and therefore not learning.

The director of Education at Houghton Mifflin had 348 words that he thought were important for children to understand. He set a task for Dr Seuss to write a book using  250 of these words and create a “cannot put down” book for children.

Utilising his illustration skills, Dr Seuss created drawings, and simple verse rhythms, that could be read by beginner readers. The Cat in The Hat sold 452,258 copies,
