|Dr. Seuss with "The Cat in the Hat"|
(in warmer weather)
He was born on March 2, 1904 in Springfield, MA and wrote so many wonderful stories for children (of all ages). The name Seuss was his mother's maiden name. His mom's parents had a bakery located in Springfield.
I've shared here on my blog that Dr. Seuss' inspiration for his stories came from growing up in the city of Springfield, MA! The motorcycles in And to Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street are red- the color of Indian Motorcycles that were invented & manufactured in Springfield.
History is interesting! Learn a little more about Dr. Seuss by reading this interesting short biography.
Below are photos (taken in warmer weather) of some bronze sculptures that were created by his step daughter, Lark Grey Dimond-Cates. These statues are located on the grounds of the Springfield Museums in Springfield, MA. When you walk onto the grounds you are greeted by:
|"Green Eggs and Ham"|
My fave Dr. Seuss book will always be Green Eggs and Ham! What is yours?
