Dr. Seuss One of the best selling authors!
Theodor Seuss “Ted” Geisel (March 2, 1904 – September 24, 1991) was an American children’s author, poet, animator, political cartoonist, filmmaker, screenwriter, and artist, best known for his work writing and illustrating more than 60 books under the pen name Dr. Seuss. His work includes many of the most popular children’s books of all time, selling over 600 million copies and being translated into more than 20 languages by the time of his death.
Dr. Seuss won the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award in Horton Hatches the Egg in 1958 and again in 1961 for And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street. Dr. Seuss’ birthday, March 2, has been adopted as the annual date for National Read Across America Day, an initiative on reading created by the National Education Association.
