Happy birthday to children’s author Theodor Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, writer of classic books like The Cat In The Hat and Green Eggs And Ham. Publishing more than 60 works during his lifetime, many of Dr. Seuss’ books remain bestsellers decades after their first publication and are classroom staples across the world. The National Education Association celebrates Read Across America Day annually every March 2, honoring Dr. Seuss and his incalculable contributions to children’s literature. Since its beginning in 1997, Read Across America Day has grown exponentially and is recognized by thousands of schools every year.
