Dr. Seuss biography is part Rookie Biography series. The physical book is very small, but packs quite a bit of information in it. This biography has pronunciation of unknown words. Photos are nice and clear. After reading the book there is a “words you know” page. There is also an index, and an about author sheet. I like the photos. I did learn that Dr. Suess’s real name is Theodor Seuss Geisel. There are all kinds of Cat-in the hat products, and a balloon float in the parade. Dr. Seuss last boo ...more
I recommend this book for an intermediate child. This biography was written specifically for a child. Even though it's for a child, it doesnt leave out any important details. It pinpoints the most important facts and events of Dr. Seuss's life. There are illustration on a whole page, mostly in black and white. Shorts sentences, but some words a child may not know or understand. In the back of the book there are vocabulary words. This is a really good way to teach children about important people.

I paired this one with a Dr. Seuss movie and reading from one of the oh-so-many Dr. Seuss stories. I shared this with all my grade levels--as a review of what's in a biography for my 3-5 graders, and as an intro to biography for my K-2. For my older students, I embellished with snippets from some of the other biographies.
