Theodor Seuss Geisel - better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss - was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children's books, and his first book - And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street - was published in 1937. His greatest claim to fame was the one and only The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a hugely successful range of early learning books.

I used to be a professional nanny in the UK and this was my sole arsenal of sleep tactics - you only need one read and both kids would be asleep before you finish. We read it every night, I started reading when they were 1 and 4 and I finished my tenure when they were 4 and 7. Whilst being a story book, it's primarily a parent saviour as it works every time.
I'm now a parent myself and read this to my own children. It's quite long, and the kids get used to the iambic rhythms of the book, so don't try to skip pages if you think they're asleep (tried it, get caught every time by a drowsy "Heyyy... that's not right?"!).
I will admit to sending myself to sleep while reading this, only to wake up on the floor of my kids room at 2am.
Buy it, you can thank me later!
