What's Your Favorite Dr. Seuss Book?

On March 2, Theodore Geisel's birthday continued to be celebrated across the States with Read Across America Day activities.

Growing up, reading a book by Dr. Seuss added a sense of silliness to my day. As I grew older, I used his material to teach rhythm and meter in creative writing classes. And as a competitive speech coach, I'd suggest a few of his works to use in poetry or prose interpretation.

My favorite is Thidwick, the Big-Hearted Moose. Something about the moose and his antler-nest of unwelcomed guests always makes me laugh. I'd read it to my kids when they were young, complete with different voices for each of the characters.
