Fun Facts Friday - Who Am I?

by Lisa Hashem

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose.”

I’m the author of Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat, and Horton Hears a Who, just to mention a few.

Who Am I?

I'm Dr. Seuss

Born on March 2, 1904, Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, was an American writer, poet, and cartoonist. Dr. Seuss is most widely known for his children’s books. He published 46 children’s books, and many of his books have been made into television specials, feature films, four television series, and a Broadway musical as well.

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

Today, March 2nd, is Dr. Seuss’s Birthday. It has been adopted as the annual date for National Read Across America Day. In honour of this great man, wonderful author, and notable day, why not grab a Dr. Seuss book and enjoy an adventure? With so many tales to choose from, it shouldn't be hard to find one you enjoy.

Let us know what Dr. Seuss books you've read and which one is your favorite.

Test Your Dr. Seuss IQ

Which Dr. Seuss book warns; "Take it slowly...this book is dangerous?"

a. Cat in the Hat
b. Fox in Socks

If you answered "b" you're right! Fox in Socks was published in 1965 and was orignally labeled as a "tongue twister for super children."
