Dr. Suess

About the Author...Theodor Suess Geisel was born March 2nd, 1904 in Springfield, Massachusetts. In 1927 he met his wife while attending Oxford to striving to become a professor. Instead of continuing his education he dropped out of college, married Helen Palmer, and moved back to the United States. After returning to the US, Theodor became a cartoonist and illustrated advertisments. The first break at writing children's books came from a publisher offering an opportunity to write a series called Boners. This series didn't do well. The turning point in Theodor's career was when he published The Cat in The Hat in 1957. This book was written in response to poor childrens reading levels and he was only allowed to use 220 specific vocabulary words.

Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. SuessThis fun story has two main characters that are in conflict. Sam would like his friend to try his dish green eggs and ham. His friend however, has decided he doesn't like the dish before he even has a chance to try it. Finally exhausted from being asked Sam's friend tries the dish and finds he LOVES IT! He is so grateful Sam pushed him to try it and agrees to eat it anywhere! what a great message to children about not judging something by its looks!

The Cat in The Hat by Dr. SuessOne of the classic books I love is The Cat in the Hat. This classic story tells of two young children at home with snow to clear before their mother returns home. The Cat in the Hat shows up just in time to make a mess and cause trouble. Before he leaves he cleans up the mess and clears the snow for the children!One

A Rare Interview with Dr. Suess..Dr. Suess rarely gave interviews. He hated them! In the link below you can read a rare interview.

The Lorax by Dr. SuessThis story is well known for it's abilty to educate children on their personal responsibilty for our earth. The story tells of a forest being destroyed. The famous quote from this book is "Unless someone like you cares a whole lot, nothing is going to get better. Its not." this is a key lesson to share with our students. We cannot depend on someone else to do the right thing, it is our responsibity!

Oh the Places You Will GO! by Dr. SuessThis is an amazing story for graduating students. This story is an inspirational story of all the possibilities that lay before you. I love reading this to my preschoolers before they graduate to kindergarten. I have personally started having all of my childrens teachers sign a personal copy to have my kids read when they graduate high school. I can only imaginewhat they will feel when they see their kindergarten teachers memories and advice for them!

Horton Hears a Who by Dr. SuessThis story is a great lesson in caring for people no matter the circumstances. An elephant named Horton discovers a city living on a flower. He has to save this city from being destroyed but moving the flower to a high location. He goes through being mocked and made fun of before those around him realize he is telling the truth. My favorite quote in this story is "A persons a person no matter how small."
