LITTLE KNOWN FACTS ABOUT DR. SEUSS

dr. seuss birthday**He wrote Green Eggs and Ham on a dare.  Ted Geisel’s publisher bet that Geisel couldn’t write a book using only 50 different words.  In an effort to make learning to read more exciting for kids, he wrote a silly tale about a picky eater (a common complaint of many parents) and a fellow who won’t take “NO” for an answer.  The result?  Green Eggs and Ham.

**He was not a doctor.  He added the title “doctor” before Seuss (his mother’s maiden name) while in college to lend credibility to his writings and characters, and in reaction to his father’s wish that his son would get a doctorate.
