Sensational Seuss: Celebrate Dr. Seuss's Birthday on March 2nd

Let's eat Green Eggs and Ham or dance with the Cat and the Hat. These would both be the perfect ways to celebrate the birthday of the prolific author, Dr. Seuss, who wrote such wonderfully gibberish-filled books such as the ones stated at the beginning of this post.

Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel on March 2, 1904 in Springfield, Massachusetts. Dr. Seuss, as he is commonly called, also penned children's books under the pseudonym Theo LeSieg. Dr. Seuss died September 24, 1991 in La Jolla, California.
