Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!


It’s Dr. Seuss’s birthday and in his honor, Honey Bear and I have created another video. Watch me nail the last page of Fox in Socks, find out the true pronunciation of “Seuss” and learn a few fun facts.

  1. Thank you for this, I *love* Dr. Seuss and some of those facts were real interesting.

    Another one – he was shy & in fear that he wouldn’t live up to how folks expected him to be from his books…

    “The sordid truth is that the extraordinary Dr. Seuss was thunk up by a nervous, shy, ordinary-looking man who constantly worries about living up to his own creation. “I always have the feeling that people will take one look and recognize me as a fraud,” says 61-year-old Theodor Seuss Geisel. “Kids come to my door and say, ‘I want to meet Dr. Seuss.’ “I say, ‘I am Dr. Seuss,’ and they simply refuse to believe me. Sometimes they will just sit and stare until my wife passes the cookies and eases them out. If your nose doesn’t light up and you don’t look like a baggy-pants comedian, or at least have a bifurcated beard and horns, they are disappointed.” ”

    I wonder what Myers-Briggs type he was…

    1. Aww! I bet it was a lot of pressure. It’s also why I bet he would be mortified to know how much of his work was published posthumously–a lot of it (from what I’ve seen) was stuff that he had clearly decided not to put out in the world, stuff not up to his usual standards.
      I bet he was an INFP, but I probably say that because I am an INFP.
