Read for Dr. Seuss!

Born Theodore Seuss Geisel on March 2, 1904, Dr. Seuss wrote some of the most well known and widely loved children’s books of the twentieth century. Most people can name one of his 46 books – from The Cat in the Hat to Green Eggs & Ham to Horton Hears a Who! – there’s a tale for just about everyone.

In honor of his birthday this weekend, PBS Parents put together a list of twelve of the best Seuss books – be sure to take a look! Each entry has a summary of the plot, as well as the lesson imparted through rhyme and exuberantly colored illustrations. So, in honor of the author, check out the list – here:  -- grab your favorite, your child’s favorite, their friend’s favorite … someone’s favorite and get reading!
