Dr Seuss

Many of us know Dr Seuss for his rhyming stories for children. His unique style is peculiar yet sensible, his rhymes are catchy and funny. Caitlin was first introduced to Dr Seuss when she was three with his infamous Cat in the Hat. She was enthralled with the sound of his words and his illustrations. Since then, we've collected a number of his books and PC games. One of her favourite stories at one time was Horton Hatches The Egg and later on, Horton Hears A Who!

What prompted me to write this post and to find out more about this man via Google is the sound of Dr Seuss PreSchool, an educational PC game, coming from the room next door. Caitlin has decided to entertain herself with it while I blog and Eugene fixes one of her broken toys.

Do you know that Theodor Seuss Geisel was a political cartoonist? He was chief editorial cartoonist for a New York newspaper before World War II and you can read more about it and view a catalog of his political cartoons here. This is something new to me and very interesting.

I also came across Dr Seuss's Seussville which I believe Caitlin and other kids would enjoy.
