March 3, 2010 Horton Hatches the Egg Kevin E. Dayhoff
Yesterday was the 107th birthday of Theodor Geisel from Springfield, MA. I say with a smile, my little crocodile, you may know him better as an early trendsetter, as the good Dr. Seuss, you may deduce, because I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. To you I’m so faithful one-hundred percent.
Yes, boys and girls, Dr. Seuss was born on March 2, 1904. After he attended Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising. He published his first children's book, “And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street,” in 1937.
However, it was his book, “The Cat in the Hat,” that really earned him a place in literary history 53 years ago. Dr. Seuss went on to publish 44 children's books, win the Pulitzer Prize in 1984, in addition to three Academy Awards, before his death in 1991.
And so it was, I say because, last Monday I celebrated his birthday early, you must know surely – with his 1940 classic “Horton Hatches the Egg.”
Please don’t complain as I attempt to explain.
The day began early for me as I found myself at William Winchester Elementary School in Westminster. I was among about a dozen local volunteers that day to help celebrate “Read Across America” day, which is celebrated every year in honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday.
