This is the perfect biography for 3rd graders and up to learn about Dr. Seuss, a very creative author.

My boys and I usually enjoy books from the "Who Was" series. I was quite surprised, and very disappointed, to discover the author chose to include the fact that Theodore Geisel wrote a book "for grown-ups and was full of pictures of naked ladies." I don't feel it added anything of value to this book and think it was inappropriate to include this information in a book aimed at elementary-aged children. It certainly could have been omitted without affecting this biography.

My kids loved reading this book. The book was just what we were hoping for, short enough for the younger kids to read but with enough information for all.

My daughter had to do a book report on someone famous. This was a perfect biography for a 3rd grader. It wasn't too long or short. She was able to understand it and found out a lot of interesting facts about Dr. Seuss and his life. Would definitely read other books in the "Who was..." series.

This is a chapter book. I didn't know that when I bought it. I assumed it was a picture book. It's a very wordy and picture-less book. The content is great, but not awesome for reading to first graders. If you are looking for a read-aloud, this isn't going to be the best option. If you are genuinely curious about Dr. Seuss, this is your book.

This was a good basic intro to the biography of Dr Seuss. Not too long and with adequate information, this would work well K through possibly 3 rd grade.
