#2. Dr. Seuss

by Barbara J. Feldman

Dr. Seuss Printable (** for premium members only)

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 as well as three Academy Awards, Theodor Geisel (best known as Dr. Seuss) authored and illustrated forty-four children’s books. Since his first children’s book in 1936, Dr. Seuss has introduced several generations of kids to the joy of reading.

Dr. Seuss Art
This official site features reproductions of illustrations from Geisel’s Dr. Seuss books, as well as art he did for other books, projects and his own enjoyment. Be sure to visit all five of the galleries listed under Art of Dr. Seuss, and to read his short biography. “Sitting in his Anglo-Saxon for Beginners class, his [Geisel’s] doodling caught the eye of a fellow American student named Helen Palmer. Helen suggested that he should become an artist instead of a professor. He took her advice and eventually, he took her hand in marriage as well.”

Dr. Seuss: Characters and Unusual Creatures
Although this site lacks graphics and animation, it’s a valuable reference. Visit to peruse a list of all of Seuss’ books, followed by an alphabetic list of all his creatures (from Aaron, the alligator to Zummers.) Did you know the word “nerd” dates to 1950 when it first appeared in Dr. Seuss’ “If I Ran the Zoo”? “I’ll sail to Ka-Troo And Bring Back an It-Kutch a Preep and a Proo a Nerkle a Nerd and a Seersucker, too!”

Dr. Seuss Went to War
Although not for the preschool set, high school students and grownups will find this fascinating. For two years (1941-1943), Ted Geisel was an editorial cartoonist for a New York newspaper. During that time he drew over 400 editorial cartoons, mostly about World War II. This collection is organized by year, as well as Places, People, Issues and Battles.
