                          The Lorax
•   This book explains how people
    are destroying the environment
    and nature. “I hear things are
    just as bad up in Lake Erie,”
    was one of the things written in
    the book, but 14 years after
    the book was published, the
    Ohio Sea Grant Program wrote
    to Dr. Seuss telling him how
    much the conditions had
    improved. He asked him to
    take the line out and Dr. Seuss
    agreed that it wouldn’t be in
    future editions.
                The Cat in the Hat
•   “The Cat in the Hat” was
    written because kids weren’t
    interested in books, and
    weren’t compelled to use it in
    their efforts to learn to read.
    So, “The Cat in the Hat” was
    created. Dr. Seuss’s publisher
    supplied him with a list of 400
    words that he thought kids in
    school would use. The Cat In
    The Hat, 223 words that
    appeared on the list plus 13
    words that did not.
Green Eggs and Ham
         •   Bennett Cerf, (who was Dr.
             Suess’s editor), said that he
             bet Dr. Suess couldn’t write a
             book with fifty word or less. So
             Dr. Suess came up with
             “Green Eggs and Ham”. The
             50 words used are a, am, and,
             anywhere, are, be, boat, box,
             car, could, dark, do, eat, eggs,
             fox, goat, good, green, ham,
             here, house, I, if, in, let, like,
             may, me, mouse, not, on, or,
             rain, Sam, say, see, so, thank,
             that, the, them, there, they,
             train, tree, try, will, with, would,
             you.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
               • Seuss was a little wary of
                 casting the Grinch
                 because he thought his
                 voice would be too scary
                 for kids. The people who
                 created the voice of the
                 Grinch went back to the
                 Grinch’s parts and
                 removed all of the high
                 tones in the Grinch’s
                 voice. That’s why the
                 Grinch sounds so
                 gravelly.
•   The Cat in the Hat, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Green Eggs and 
    Ham, and the Lorax are the most popular Dr. Suess’s books created. 
•   Throughout his career, he has written 60 books. His books have 
    topped many bestseller lists, has sold over 222 million copies, and has 
    been translated into more than 15 languages. 
•   At various times Dr. Seuss also wrote books for adults that used the 
    same style of verse and pictures.  These adult books include “The
    Seven Lady Godivas”, “Oh, The Places You'll Go!” (which has become 
    a popular gift for graduating students), and You're Only Old Once!
    (which narrates an old man's journey through a clinic.)
