Hooray for Dr. Seuss!

Dr. Seuss, world-famous children's author, has a new book out: The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories. It contains 7 stories that were published in Redbook Magazine in 1950 and 1951. I wonder if they stand the test of time? You can read about the new book here.

Did you know that Dr. Seuss's first book, And To Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street, was rejected 27 times before it finally found a home at Random House?

At the time of Theodore Seuss Geisel's death, in 1991, he had sold more than 200 million copies of his books (numbered then at 46). Impressive!

Shows the value of perseverance.
