Who’s Who in Dr. Seuss

Delightfully composed descriptions of persons, words, and phrases populate Who’s Who and What’s What in the Books of Dr. Seuss. Each entry not only discusses the subject but also points the reader to the book in which it appeared, from And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street (1937) to Hooray for Diffendoofer Day! (1998). For additional information, please read The Beginnings of Dr. Seuss: An Informal Reminiscence by Theodore Seuss Geisel; it discusses his early career until 1937 and is based on taped conversations from 1975. Both sites are courtesy of Dartmouth College, of which Geisel was an alum. Links to his political cartoons for World War II and his advertising work are at this University of California at San Diego site. The NEA’s Read Across America program that supports reading among children is an annual event held on his birthday of March 2. “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”  – Dr. Seuss, “I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!”
