Here is a doctor who is a favorite among children. "Dr. Seuss," as Theodor Seuss Geisel is fondly called, authored several children's books, including classics like The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Seuss' books are special because of his unique style of rhyming and bizarre cartoon characters. Children, who otherwise find reading quite boring, find themselves deeply engrossed in a Dr. Seuss book. On this page, you can read some popular Dr. Seuss quotes culled from his famous books.
