Happy birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Born this day in 1904 in Springfield, Massachusetts!

And (consequently) happy Read Across America day!

Fun history from the Writer's Almanac this morning:

"...Seuss's publisher bet him $50 that he could not write a book using only 50 different words. Seuss won the bet with his book Green Eggs and Ham (1960), which uses exactly 50 different words, and only one of those words has more than one syllable: the word "anywhere.""
