Theodore Geisel first used the penname Seuss during his senior year at Dartmonth College in the school’s humor magazine. Later as a professional magazine cartoonist, he began to sign his work as “Dr. Theophrastus Seuss,” which he later shorted and carried over to his books. Today, the name Dr. Seuss is synonymous with children’s literature, and his timeless stories have been translated into multiple languages and are enjoyed around the world. For this reason and because one of his most famous characters, the Grinch, is so closely associated with this time of year, we are dedicating this month’s School Library to the works of Dr. Seuss.

With unmistakable characters and signature rhymes, the list of places to enjoy green eggs and ham and friends to enjoy them with gets longer and longer. But even though Sam is persistent, convincing others to try something like green eggs and ham is a challenge—a challenge that Sam-I-am is ready to take on with all his enthusiasm.
