Green Eggs And Ham
Dr. Seuss, was an American author and cartoonist best known for his children’s books, particularly The Cat in the Hat. He also wrote under another pen name, namely Theo. LeSieg and Rosetta Stone.
Books by Dr. Seuss sold more than 200 million copies worldwide and was translated into a number of languages. The hallmark of his book is that it has odd rhymes and the character of the main character is also strange but quickly accepted by the public.
The first children’s book written and drawn by Theodor Geisel, ‘And to Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street’, was rejected by more than 20 publishers. However, the book was finally published in 1937. His first best-selling book, ‘The Cat in the Hat’, was published 20 years later or in 1957.
The character of a naughty cat was successfully created by Dr. Seuss after the publisher asked him to produce a book using 220 vocabularies from readers. The proposal was considered to be an alternative entertainment for reading books at school for children, which at that time were mostly boring.

Characteristics of Dr. Seuss’ Books
In May 1954, Life magazine published a report on illiteracy among schoolchildren. Among the factors cited by the report is the fact that children are bored with books available to early readers. His publisher sent Geisel a list of 400 words and challenged him to write a book that would use about 250 words. Geisel used 236 words for Cat in a Hat, and it was an instant success.
Dr. Seuss once said, “Kids want the same things we want. To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained and to have fun.” Dr. books. Seuss definitely provides that for the kids. Its hilarious lyrics, engaging plot, and imaginative characters add to the fun for kids and adults alike.
Dr.Seuss’s book definitively proved that it is possible to create an interesting book with a limited vocabulary when the author/illustrator has imagination and intelligence. The plot of Dr. Seuss entertains and often teaches lessons, from the importance of being responsible for the earth and one another to learning what really matters. With their quirky characters and clever rhymes, Dr. Seuss is great to read aloud.
