Did you know Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss, would have been 107 years old today? He would have been so cool to talk to, don’t you think? And like a good man should, he thanked his Mom for his awesomeness. 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. :)
Did you know Dr. Seuss’ works accumulated two Academy Awards, two Emmys, a Peabody and a Pulitzer? The man rocked in so many ways, but in the way he was the best was in touching the hearts of so many people around the world with his imagination.
