About Dr. SeussDr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel) was an a famous american poet, writer and cartoonist. He was best known for his children's books, which he wrote and illustrated under the pseudonym Dr. Seuss. He had used the pen name Dr. Theophrastus Seuss in college and later used Theo LeSieg and Rosetta Stone. Dr. Seuss (Geisel) wrote most of his books in anapestic tetrameter, a poetic meter employed by many poets of the English literary canon. This is often suggested as one of the reasons that Geisel's writing was so well received. Geisel also wrote verse in trochaic tetrameter, an arrangement of a strong syllable followed by a weak syllable, with four units per line (for example, the title of One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish). Dr. Seuss birthday, March 2, has been adopted as the annual date for National Read Across America Day, an initiative on reading created by the National Education Association. We are sharing and featuring here in his author's space some of his best poems and most popular rhymes.
