Friday, March 2, 2018 is Dr. Seuss Day 2018. Happy Birthday to you, Dr. Seuss! :) HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DR. SEUSS!
We truly love him inside a house. We truly love him having a mouse. We truly love him here or there. We truly love him anywhere. We truly love the silly goose. We truly love old Dr. Seuss!Today is Dr. Seuss Day, a complete twenty-four hrs to create a wreck havoc on the kitty within the Hat, dance around using the Fox in Sox, hear a Who with Horton, count the red-colored and blue seafood, assist the Grinch begin to see the error of his ways, and pay attention to Mike I Am’s friend complain about his dish of eco-friendly eggs and pork, the ungrateful hairball!Theodor Seuss Geisel, generally known by his pen title Dr. Seuss, would be a author, poet and cartoonist. Though best referred to as a children’s author (he launched an astonishing forty-six books for tykes), his career also saw him act as an illustrator to promote campaigns along with a political cartoonist throughout world war ii. He seemed to be a real perfectionist, recognized to discard 95% of his material before buying a style for any new book, sometimes investing up to and including year writing just one story, and choosing payment when completed, instead of ahead of time.March second is really a celebration of his existence and works, because it was about this day in 1904 he joined the planet. Getting resided 80-seven many made an amazing effect on numerous decades, he died in 1991 at his home in La Jolla, California. His many bizarre, colourful and zany tales continue to be valued by youthful and old alike, and, getting been converted into greater than twenty languages, are read all around the globe each day.Should you fancy having to pay an appropriate tribute, we advise dressing having a friend as Factor 1 and Factor 2. All that's necessary are blue hairpieces and red-colored jumpsuits. Oh, and never-ending energy!
Dr. Seuss (Theodore Geisel) died in 1991 and his last book was published in 1990. It was called "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" He wrote that whole book himself, but there was other book that he wrote under a different name Theo LeSieg and that was "Ten Apples Up on Top!" in 1961.
Here's some info about this "50 different words" thing:
Green Eggs and Ham is one of Seuss's "Beginner Books", written in a very simple vocabulary for beginning readers. The vocabulary of the text consists of just fifty different words, of which 49 are monosyllabic (the one exception being "anywhere"). It averages 5.7 words per sentence and 1.02 syllables per word, with an exceptionally low Flesch-Kincaid grade level of -1.3.
A rumor has it that Bennett Cerf, Dr. Seuss's publisher, wagered $50 that Seuss could not write a book using only fifty different words. The bet came after Seuss completed The Cat in the Hat, which contains a total of 236 words. Despite Seuss's success, it is unclear whether Cerf ever paid the bet.
The tale is in the form of a so-called "cumulative" story, with a list of circumstances which gradually increases as the story progresses. Thus, one of Sam's friend's refusals goes:
I do not like them in a box.
I do not like them with a fox.
I do not like them in a house.
I do not like them with a mouse.
I do not like them here or there.
I do not like them anywhere.
I do not like green eggs and ham.
I do not like them, Sam-I-am.
Cumulative stories are a traditional genre of English folklore, for instance in the tale "This is the House that Jack Built", the folk song "Green grow the rushes, O", or the Christmas song and nursery rhyme The Twelve Days of Christmas. (See also cumulative song.)
The fifty 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. 45 of the 50 words (all but box, car, Sam, train and try) are of Germanic origin.

When is Dr. Seuss Day celebrated ?
Dr. Seuss Day is celebrated on March 2nd, in honor of his birthday. I think it's very fitting to celebrate the importance of reading on this day. Dr. Seuss is such a fantastic children's book author... but I love how anyone can enjoy reading his books.
