By Eric Granstrom
For, I'm Eric Granstrom. Today is the anniversary of the birth of one of America’s great storytellers, Dr. Seuss. He was born Theodore Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1904. In his career, Geisel published over 60-books, 44 as Dr. Seuss. His first children’s book “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street” was rejected 27-times before being published in 1937. My favorite Dr. Seuss book is “Oh the Place You’ll Go!” in 1990. Waiting for a fish to bite or waiting for wind to fly a kite or waiting around for Friday night or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake or a pot to boil, or a Better Break or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants or a wig with curls, or Another Chance. Everyone is just waiting. Did you know Geisel’s wife Helen Palmer wrote a book too? It’s called “A Fish Out of Water”. It was based on Dr. Seuss’s “Gustav, the Goldfish”. Red fish weird fish, blue fish new fish, fish in a boat, fish can float, (fish on a lilo?), green fish, clean fish, fish on a train, fish in a plane...etc. Could you imagine breakfast with the Geisel's? Until next time, Good Fishing!
