Celebrating Dr. Seuss’ Birthday and the Legacy He Left

Don't forget to like and share! 🙂

March 2nd marks the 113th birthday of Theodor Geisel (more commonly known as Dr. Seuss). The legacy that he left on the world is endless.

Almost every person has heard of or read some of his work at some point in their life. He wrote over 60 books in his lifetime, most commonly recognized for his quick wit and flowing rhymes within the books, Dr. Seuss also had some serious meaning behind each of his books that continues to affect students here at Snow College, even if they don’t read children’s books anymore.

Dr. Seuss got his pseudonym from his father’s desire that he would eventually get a PhD. While he was pursuing a PhD from Oxford in English, he dropped out, so he made himself a doctor through his pen name. The name Seuss cam from his mother’s maiden name, which also happened to be his middle name.

Dr. Seuss has had such an impact on American culture that even the National Education Association celebrates National Read Across America Day on his birthday. Elementary students all across the country will halt their normal lessons and spend at least part of their day reading today.

To celebrate the legacy that this man had on the world, take a break from studying and read some. Ponder all the places you’ll go and remember, “You’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So… get on your way!”
