Happy birthday, Theodor S. Geisel!

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” - Dr. Seuss.

On March 2, 1904, an American treasure was born in Springfield, Massachusetts. Theodor S. Geisel, more commonly known by his pen name, Dr. Seuss, has delighted readers of all ages with his many wonderful books. The Water Library has just two of his titles: 'The Lorax' and 'One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.'

A great way to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday is to participate in the national reading event created in his honor, Read Across America.

To learn more about Dr. Seuss, visit his Web site, Seussville.

And the Library of Congress has a great Web site full of activities and resources around reading.

Happy birthday, Dr. Seuss!
