Dr. Seuss is Born

March 2, 1904
Theodor Seuss Geisel was born on this day in 1904 and grew up to become a much beloved author and illustrator of 48 books. Over the years, 200 million+ books have been sold and translated into many languages. His first children’s book, "And to Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street," was rejected by over 24 publishers before making it into print in 1937. Twenty years later, Geisel's released his first bestseller, "The Cat in the Hat” and established the character as a brand for his writing. His last book, “Oh, the Places You'll Go!” was published in 1990. Dr. Seuss died September 24, 1991, at age 87.
