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.

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.

Book review by Yishai from Israel.
Who was Dr. Seuss?
By- Janet B. Pascal
This book biography is about Theodor Seuss Geisel, known as Dr. Seuss. Theodor was the best illustrator of books for kids.
His biggest hit was "The Cat in the Hat". All the world grabbed it of the shelves.
His other good book is "And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street". That was a good book too.
I think the 2nd to best book is the book "Horton Hears a Who" it's about an elephant named Horton that hears a voice that comes out a mayor of a city of whos. Horton tries to save the whos from death.
Dr. Seuss got the Best Pulitzer Prize. Dr. Seuss went to learn at Oxford University. There he met Helen Palmer. They came back to the U.S.A., and they married a few months after. He worked as an advertisements illustrator.
Dr. Seuss was against the Nazis all the time of the "World War Two". That's the reason he enlisted in the army, to go out against the Nazis.
Dr. Seuss joined the United States Army to the Motion Picture Unit. That unit made movies to train the new soldiers.
Dr. Seuss's wife passed away and he married again. Sadly, the 2nd wife wasn't as good as Helen Palmer who he loved.
In 1991 Dr. Seuss passed away at the age of eighty seven. He will always be in our hearts.

If you want to know more, just read the book!!!!!!
P.S. There's another good book that is called "One Fish Two Fish, Red Fish Blue Fish". The book is about opposites (antonyms).
Dr. Seuss published the book "Green Eggs and Ham". That's a good book too. I read it a few times and was really good (I mean when I was young). That book is about a creature called Sam that doesn't like green eggs and ham. Dr. Seuss brought some situations but Sam said: "No I don't like, Sam-I-am". At the end he said: "I will try them. You will see." So after all Sam did like green eggs and ham.

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.

I read a lot of the Who Was Series. I enjoy all of the books in the series. Dr Seus had a great imagination. Do you know Dr seus made a adult book but it wasn't successful at all? Dr Seus loved to draw crazy colorful animals that you can see in all of his books.

My son had to do a 5th grad project on someone who influenced American history. This was a perfect choice! The book was fun and informative and easy for him to read. Even I learned alot about Dr. Seuss from reading the book.

Our grandson loves Dr. Seuss and I thought this would be a great reading book for him. Although I know that he enjoyed it, it was a little below his reading level as he is almost 10 years old.

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.
