Wishing Dr. Seuss a very Happy Birthday today! 

Theodore Seuss Geisel was famous for his work in children’s literature, most notably for The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and many others. 

Quite possibly Dr. Seuss’ most influential book was The Lorax. It quickly became an icon for environmental conservation. Dr. Seuss states “It’s a book about going easy on what we’ve got. It’s anti-pollution and anti-greed.” The Lorax the movie was released on March 2, 2012, the last of 4 major motion pictures released based on his books.
