He was born on March 2, 1904, in Springfield, MA and his real name was Theodore Seuss Geisel, but he wrote under lots of different names. Some of those name are Theo LeSieg, Rosetta Stone and Theophrastus Seuss.
Dr. Seuss Books
He wrote over 60 books !!! Some of his books are The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, There is a Wocket in My Pocket, The Lorax, and Mr Brown Can Moo - Can You?
My favorite Dr. Suess book used to be Wacky Wednesday. I liked this book because you had to find all kinds of strange things that were happening to the kid in the book.
