Happy Birthday Theodor Geisel aka Dr. Seuss

Born 105 years ago, March 2nd, 1907, Theodor Seuss Geisel came into this world. His imagination is one I long to have. He may have been unusual to some in his mind's wonderings, but what an amazing gift that God gave him, to write for & capture the imaginings of children everywhere. Though he didn't stop at writing, he illustrated with such panache that you are inherently drawn into his world. He used those skills to create political cartoons for WWII & advertisements for companies such as Flit & Standard Oil.
I began reading Dr. Seuss books when I was about 8, but even at my advanced age of 23 :), I still enjoy poring over his tongue twisting phrases that tickle your brain.
The world would not have been the same for me without Green Eggs & Ham or The Cat in the Hat.
What are your favorite Seuss books?

So Happy 105th Birthday Dr. Seuss!

God bless,
Sarah Grace

P.S. Did you know that he also wrote under the psuedonym Theo LeSieg, Geisel spelled backwards for several of his works?
