## This Week in Math History

Although he is not a mathematician, this week I wanted everyone to read more about Theodor Seuss Geisel more commonly known as Dr. Seuss. Dr. Seuss was born on March 2, 1904 and wrote so many wonderful children's books. One of my favorite books growing up was "Ten Apples Up on Top", which of course is a counting book. I guess I loved math even when I was little. Please click http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/61105.Dr_Seuss to discover more about Dr. Seuss.
