The second biography book that I chose was a book all about Theodor Seuss Geisel or better known as Dr. Seuss. He attended Dartmouth College where he wrote for the magazine and the school newspaper. After college, he changed his name to Dr. Seuss because he wanted to be more important to people. In 1936, he wrote his first book while he was on a ship. His first book was a rhyming book named And To Think That I Saw It in Mulberry Street. His most famous book, The Cat in the Hat, was written in th ...more

This book is all about Dr. Seuss, the writer many children's books. Dr. Seuss grew up in Massachusetts and eventually went to college in New York.

Dr. Seuss's real name is Theodore Seuss Geisel and he was born in 1904. He went to Dartmouth College. He drew cartoons for magazines. He wrote his first book in 1936 on a ship. He then continued writing stories like The Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham. He wrote about protecting plants and animals (The Lorax) and caring for people (Horton Hears a Who!). He died in 1991.
A respectable easy reader bio of Dr. Seuss. Well-suited to young audiences.
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.

Dr. Seuss is a brief biography of Theodor Seuss Geisel, Dr Seuss as you may know him. It depicted how his young boy's imagination transformed into the development of over 44 published books. This book is for beginner readers who are experiencing nonfiction literature.
Such a great beginning reader series that introduces important people to young kids.
