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.

This book was recommend to me by an aquaintance. Our 20 month old can be very picky with his books. He gets bored very quickly. But for some reason I do not really understand, he LOVES this book. He asks to have it read several times per day. It has many new nouns (ceiling, pocket, rug, sofa) and he has learned them all from this book.
When I first read it to him, I really did not think it would be successful. The only other Dr Seuss book he has loved so much is Mr Brown Can Moo.
I dont know if it is the drawings or the rhyming sounds or exactly what. But "Wocket" has become his recent favorite. I would love to find other books that he would enjoy so much.
