Most of us know Dr. Seuss because he was famous for writing children’s books and his clever sayings. He was a pretty inspirational guy. I did an art extra credit presentation on him because I think he is fascinating and you’ll find out why! His real name was Theodore Seuss Geisel. He was a cartoonist, writer, and poet. Originally he went to school to be a teacher because he had no idea what else he wanted to do. His doodlings caught the eye of a fellow student and she told him that he should draw for a living so that is just what he did. This lady later became his wife. The reason that I find Dr. Seuss to be such an incredibly human being is because the man can basically do it all. Most people don’t know that during WWII he drew political cartoons that he took a lot of criticism for. Since he was too old to join the draft, he wanted to have some sort of effect on the war so he drew political cartoons to get people involved and to satirize the people that the US was at war with. So not only was he a children’s cartoonist and author or an inspirational character, but he also drew political cartoons. With me being a history nerd, I find it pretty cool!
