March's Author of the Month- Dr. Seuss

His birthday’s in March, so America reads

About Grinches, and Horton, and Yertle, and Sneeds,

And celebrates also by wearing cool hats!

I wonder what Dr. Seuss thought about that?

Theodore Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss) was born in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904.  He never won a Caldecott or Newbury medal, but did win a special Nobel Prize for his contribution to literature, has won two Academy Awards, two Emmy Awards, and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!  In 2004, U.S. children's librarians established the annual Theodor Seuss Geisel Award to recognize "the most distinguished American book for beginning readers published in English in the United States during the preceding year".  It’s only fitting that his birthday was picked for National Read Across America Day!
