Dr. Seuss BIO
Dr. Seuss Was Born Theodore Seuss Geisel In 1904 In Springfield Massachusetts. He Is Best Known For Writing Over 60 Children’s Books, But He Was Also An Accomplished Political Cartoonist, Publisher, And Illustrator.
He Began Using A Pen Name At Dartmouth When He Was Caught Drinking Gin. As A Result, The Dean Stripped Him Of His Editorship Of The School’s Humor Magazine. To Continue Writing In The Paper, He Adopted A Number Of Pen Names. He Did Plan To Pursue A Doctorate, Briefly Going To Oxford, But He Dropped Out Before Graduating. Following College, He Got Married And Began Working As A Cartoonist, Then Moved On To Advertising, Where He Found Success.
Everything Changed In 1936 While On A Ship Headed Back To The United States From Europe. He Amused Himself By Creating Fun Rhymes To The Rhythm Of The Engines. This Turned Into “And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street”.
Dr. Seuss Would Go On To Sell Over 600 Million Books And Have Them Translated Into 20 Different Languages. He Died In 1991 And Has Become One Of The Most Beloved Children’s Authors In History.

A Lot Like Dr. Seuss Is Left To Write And Rhyme, I Love To Cook And Write! The Love Came From My Mother And Grandmother Who Are Always In The Kitchen Cooking. I Became Curious About Food At A Very Young Age And I’ve Grown With It Since My Mom Passing Down Homemade Easy Meals While Still Saving Money And Loving To Do It.
