Wordy Wednesday: Love You, Dr. Seuss!

Seuss110

He’s one of world’s most recognizable authors, and his words have been inspired children — including those children of all ages (you know who you are) — for more than a few generations!

March 2 marked the 110th birthday of Theodor Geisel, whose pen name became Dr. Seuss, though he wasn’t a doctor.

My Editorial Assistant, Mom Karen, and I like to think of Dr. Seuss as a “word doctor” — someone who brought new life to words and help us see words differently. His rhyming sentences, delightful characters and drawings and creation of completely made-up words have added life to our reading for many decades.

We’re never too old to enjoy the writings and humor that are distinctly Dr. Seuss!

To celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday, we’re sharing some of his favorite quotes, courtesy of Parade magazine. To read the complete article, visit http://goo.gl/T3fvlj.
