More About the Author

"A person's a person, no matter how small," Theodor Seuss Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, would say. "Children want the same things we want. To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained and delighted."

Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped millions of kids learn to read.

Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts, on March 2, 1904. After graduating from Dartmouth College in 1925, he went to Oxford University, intending to acquire a doctorate in literature. At Oxford, Geisel met Helen Palmer, whom he wed in 1927. Upon his return to America later that year, Geisel published cartoons and humorous articles for Judge, the leading humor magazine in America at that time. His cartoons also appeared in major magazines such as Life, Vanity Fair, and Liberty. Geisel gained national exposure when he won an advertising contract for an insecticide called Flit. He coined the phrase, "Quick, Henry, the Flit!" which became a popular expression.

Geisel published his first children's book, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, in 1937, after 27 publishers rejected it.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984, an Academy Award, three Emmy Awards, three Grammy Awards, and three Caldecott Honors, Geisel wrote and illustrated 44 books. While Theodor Geisel died on September 24, 1991, Dr. Seuss lives on, inspiring generations of children of all ages to explore the joys of reading.

I bought this as a sign in book for our son's first birthday party...but it's so small (probably 6x6 inches or so) that there's no way I'll use it that way. That's obviously my fault for not checking the dimensions...not the book's fault, but it was a disappointment nonetheless.

There are ten "pages", including the front and back cover. (This is a short book!) The first page has the cute birthday bird with a furry spot cut out on his shirt. Second page has a lift up flap, Third to fourth page has a moveable component...which is hard to move initially, and after you've read the book many times, it moves much more freely. Fifth page has a "sniff" component and shiny metallic "leaves". The sixth page/seventh page has a scrolling feature. Eighth page has again a moveable feature, pull tab style. Last two pages are cute and without any of the shenanigans the other pages feature..which is a little bit of a letdown.

It is a very cute birthday baby book though, and has a nice hard cover, good sturdy pages and spine. Has been enjoyed but I will likely put it away so it can be a 'memory item' for him for later on in life. Vivid fun illustrations and overall a fun, nice book.

This book is not as good as most Dr. Seuss books I've read. My niece loves him because of the rhyming style, but this one isn't really that way. Some of the pieces of the book that have movement are kind of cute.

cute book for a child's first birthday. I never received my original order. After a wk of not receiving it- it never could be found by UPS or the USPS. Amazon did over night me another order. That was nice.
