About the Author

THEODOR SEUSS GEISEL—aka Dr. Seuss—is one of the most beloved children’s book authors of all time. From The Cat in the Hat to Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, his iconic characters, stories, and art style have been a lasting influence on generations of children and adults. The books he wrote and illustrated under the name Dr. Seuss (and others that he wrote but did not illustrate, including some under the pseudonyms Theo. LeSieg and Rosetta Stone) have been translated into thirty languages. Hundreds of millions of copies have found their way into homes and hearts around the world. Dr. Seuss’s long list of awards includes Caldecott Honors for McElligot’s Pool, If I Ran the Zoo, and Bartholomew and the Oobleck, the Pulitzer Prize, and eight honorary doctorates. Works based on his original stories have won three Oscars, three Emmys, three Grammys, and a Peabody.

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.

Compliments the original beginner set. Great to read to children and for your beginning reader. Thick cover and colorful pages. Great gift for beginning library. The purple cover you see is a thin box holding the individual books.

The purchase of this collection was for our three grandchildren. The words and the ryhming of the stories of Dr. Seuss writings are so much fun!!! My granddaughter is in kindergarten and learning words that rhyme has been a portion of her homework. These books are essential for the whole family. The money spent for these books has been well worth it. I purchased these books from Amazon which is a competitive provider with prices on most products.

Books arrived on time. My little readers were sooooo excited. They carry them everywhere we go. Car rides to the store have turned into "read aloud" time. My ears love the music of learning!!!!! Thank you Dr Seuss and Amazon

I purchased this as a gift. It was perfect! Hard cover books in a cardboard cover box. Excellent for anyone who loves Dr. Seuss.

The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is that I would have liked them to have been a bit larger, that being said the size really was fine. I liked the selection choice.
