Dr. Seuss Day
Dr. Seuss Day lasts twenty-four hours. You can make a mess of the Cat in the Hat and dance with the Fox in Sox.
Theodor Seuss Geisel was a cartoonist, writer and poet. Although he is best known for his work as a children’s author (he published 46 books), he also worked as an illustrator during the Second World War and as a political cartoonist. A perfectionist by nature, he was known for discarding 95% of his material before settling upon a theme for a new story. He preferred to be paid after the book is complete, as opposed to in advance.
March 2nd is a celebration his life and work, since it was this day in 1904 when he entered the universe. He died in 1991 at his California home in La Jolla after a remarkable life of 87 years. Young and old alike treasure his many eccentric, colorful, and zany stories, which have been translated into over twenty languages and are read every day around the globe.
We recommend that you dress up as Thing 1 or Thing 2 with a friend if you want to pay a fitting tribute. You only need blue wigs, and red jumpsuits. You will also need boundless energy!
Theodor Seuss Geisel was born in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904. He was a Dartmouth Jack-O-Lantern humor magazine editor. Things were going well. Dr. Seuss impressed so much that he was made the publication’s editor in chief. He was found to be drinking and forced to resign. The policy was similar to that of Prohibition.
But this didn’t stop him. He drew over 400 political cartoons during the Second World War for “PM,” a daily newspaper in New York. Many of his drawings were political in nature and depicted dictators Mussolini or Hilter. Japanese Americans were portrayed as traitors latent. He also made films for the U.S. Air Force.
He entered the most important stage of his career when he began writing children’s books. He began to use Dr. Seuss’ pen name. Green Eggs and Ham and How the Grinch Stole Christmas are some of his most well-known books. He wrote until his death on September 24, 1991. His books for children continue to inspire people. Many of his books have been made into films, and his stories are still selling well.
