Back when I was a buyer of children's books one of my mainstay subjects was "Dr Seuss", yes these books had their own category and section in the stores. I loved working on Read Across America every year. To go back even farther; when I first started working in the children's section of the bookstore I wasn't comfortable recommending books. I figured it was easier to go with what I knew and what was classic. My first suggestions were always a Dr Seuss book, which always resulted in a sale. When I was finally in charge of the department I would tell any new person to do what I did, "sell what you know and what you remember".... Dr Suess books were and are always great "go to" books.
Today is Theodor “Dr. Seuss” Geisel's birthday. This morning I asked my sister Ann what her favorite Dr Seuss book was, without hesitation she said "Horton Hatches the Egg". I too am a great fan of Horton....he is such a sweet character. A memorable character amongst memorable characters. A definite must have title.
