I will not eat them in a house, I will not eat them with a mouse, I will not eat them in a box, I will not eat them with a fox, I will not eat them here or there, I will not eat them anywhere….” Dr. Seuss.
If you remember any of your childhood reading, you most likely recognize the above excerpt, taken from the Dr. Seuss book, “Green Eggs and Ham,” one of the most popular of his books written.
Theodor Seuss Geisel was born in March of 1904 and a century later, his birth is still celebrated by millions of school children and is recognized as one of the top children’s books authors and illustrators of our time.
The New Testament Christian Center in Madison has been celebrating Dr. Seuss all month long by reading selected books from the 44 children’s books he authored, working on craft projects such as Lorax masks and Cat in the Hat paper hats with their names, and decorations that adorn the classrooms, doors and halls in the school.
Dr. Seuss wrote a total of 44 children’s books, which was translated into more than 15 languages around the world. The Cat in the Hat was the book that defined his career and according to New Testament teachers, is still the number one book among students.
