More About the Author
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.

ON EQUALITY AND JUSTICE
`I know, up on top you are seeing great sights, but down at the bottom we, too, should have rights.'
ON GOING PLACES
`The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.'
If you still think Dr. Suess books are just for kids then ponder this...
`Every book is a children's book if the kid can read' - Mitch Hedberg
and entertaining. Anyone from 3 to 1,003 will enjoy this wonderful book (I'm 12, and I love this book,and so does my mom)
This is a great little compilation, and doesn't feel forced or faked or "context-less" at all. If you are upset and if you find this particular book to be simply a marketing ploy, then you're not heeding the Good Doctor: "So be sure when you step. Step with care and great tact, and remember that Life's A Great Balancing Act."
Certainly, I'll buy books by Dr. Seuss. But I'll buy this one, too, several times.
This slim tome is full of little pieces of wisdom, in Seuss' own words and with his drawings. It's Suess-Lite, but perfect for when you just need a smile, or a breather. Sometimes the simplicity lets us look at our selves better and to see the simple truths in living. It is a perfect little gift for the graduate, or just to keep on your desk for when you need a smile, and a short breather to put life in perspective.
