Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Today is Dr. Seuss' birthday, worthy of celebrating for so many reasons including his transformation of the children's literary world from one of stodgy lesson stories, to a a fantastical landscape of fanciful excitement and stories that kids were actually interested in listening too. He has been a major influence on me, and at one point I did have a complete library of his work, though many volumes have been incorporated into my own kids libraries, where they now reside in less than pristine condition, which is how it should be.
