Theodor Seuss Geisel is known as Dr. Seuss by many small children and even adults who remember reading his books as children. For some people, his books were the first books they read all by themselves. From Go Dog Go to The Lorax, these stories read simple with their contagious rhyming, but they offered the reading so much more meaning.

How could you know if green ham was bad if you have never tried it? Teaching children to try new food their parents might give them. Does the Lorax's tail about the environment still hold true today? The complexity that lives inside these books are this discussed today by children and adults.

The Nation Education Association developed National Read Across America Day on Dr. Seuss's birthday to encourage children and adults to take the time to read.
