I have done all of the three for the July 28th release of the new Dr. Seuss book, What Pet Should I Get? The release date is nearing and I am eagerly anticipating reading the new book (and not just because I have a pet!)
This newest book comes from the estate of Dr. Seuss, Theodor Geisel and was originally found in his office once in 1991, then lost then rediscovered in 2013 when his office was being cleaned out and organized. His widow found the manuscript for What Pet Should I Get along with material for two additional books which will be released in the future.
Count Me In As One Of The 650 Million Suess Fans
Random House estimates over 650 million Dr. Seuss books have been sold through the years.
I don’t remember Dr. Seuss not being in my personal library. My parents stressed their love and appreciation of books and passed that love along of the literary world. I recently came across Green Eggs and Ham and the Cat In The Hat in a box of books (we thankfully saved from a flood!)
Just looking the covers brings back so many wonderful memories. What Pet Should I Get? is currently retailing for below ten dollars on Amazon.
Two other notable events for Dr. Seuss fans is the Hats Off Tour exhibition and the first museum dedicated to Dr. Seuss, the Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum in Springfield, Massachusetts.
The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum is slated to open in two phases; the children’s museum in 2016 with a second floor opening in 2017 which will contain art and artifacts of the author.
Hats Off To Dr. Seuss Exhibition
Dr. Seuss fans will appreciate this touring exhibition of the private collection of the hats of Dr. Seuss. The Hats Off To Dr. Seuss Exhibition has been travelling the United States since 2013. If you live on either U.S. Coast, there are still many showing scheduled for Florida and California before the tour ends in late 2015.
Ted Geisel aka as Dr. Seuss began collecting hats in the 1930’s; his iconic book Cat In The Hat was published in 1957 and remains a must have in any children’s’ library.
