Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904. After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising. His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!, appeared in several leading American magazines. Dr. Seuss's first children's book, And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever! In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best- selling series, Beginner Books. This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills. Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped kids learn to read.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and three Academy Awards, Seuss was the author and illustrator of 44 children's books, some of which have been made into audiocassettes, animated television specials, and videos for children of all ages. Even after his death in 1991, Dr. Seuss continues to be the best-selling author of children's books in the world.

Grandchild far away???? Mar 25, 2008
My granddaughter is only 20 months old and lives in Australia. I live in Philadelphia. I have actually seen her in person only 3 times since she was born. We "meet" on line about once a week with webcams ready. Although she speaks well, she's not quite ready for a full discussion. But, when she came to visit at 16 months, she really knew me instantly!
I had the idea that we could "read" together, so I ordered several Dr. Seuss books - 2 of each - from this site.com. She gets to choose the book, and I have my copy near at hand. We can not only read, but I can also point out the various pictures.
Last week, when reading "Hands Hands Fingers Thumb," I decided to bring out an African drum I have in the house. My daughter brought out one she had at her house, and my granddaughter and I played the drums together. "One thumb, one thumb, drumming on the drum. Dum ditty dum ditty dum dum dum." We were both laughing hard and had a great time. It was the first time I felt we were able to play together. Thanks, this site!

The Foot Book: Dr. Seuss's Wacky Book of Opposites (Bright & Early Board Books(TM))
Fun and silly Dr. Seuss book that makes teaching fun
Left foot, left foot, right foot right foot. Feb 26, 2008
Whenever I work with kindergarten and first graders, this is one of the books I enjoy reading. They LOVE this book because of it's simplicity. It's great for encouraging kids to read and building self esteem. Thank you Dr. Seuss.
Favorite early reader Feb 21, 2008
This was my favorite book when I was little. I read it all the time with my mom and Dad and learned how to read. The repetition was easy to figure out through the pictures and practice. I actually had 2 of these books. One for the car and one for home. Try it...you will like it!
short---but humorous with a fine sense of rhyme Feb 14, 2008
The Foot Book teaches children adjectives and nouns to describe and name things; this educational read will be a lot of fun for your young child just learning to read. This book is perfect for adults to introduce to children while reading it to them; and gradually the child can be encouraged to read it more and more independently.
The illustrations are wonderful and classic Dr. Seuss style; but the real draw here is the information the books imparts to young readers and children learning to read.
The book has a page near the very front so that the child can write their name in it to personalize this book; that's sweet and a very clever idea to draw the child into the book all the more.
The lines of the book teach adjectives and nouns as they relate to, well, feet. (Well, mostly as they relate to feet.) Children are taught the words and the differences between left and right; morning and night; wet and dry; high and low; front and back; slow and quick; up and down--and much more. It's all very well done.
The hardcover of the book feels very strong and resilient so that young children can't accidentally do much damage to it; and the quality of the paper is excellent.
I highly recommend this book for young children. It is very educational and fun for them at the same time. Just don't tell them they're learning--as long as they think this is all in fun they'll gobble up this information faster than anything!
