Dr. Seuss books are a must-have in every child’s library! To celebrate Dr. Seuss Day on March 2, we’ve rounded up our favorite classics by this best-selling author. Which is your favorite?

Green Eggs and Ham

Sam-I-Am likes green eggs and ham! In typical Dr. Seuss rhyming fashion, the list of places to eat this unusual treat (and friends to enjoy it with) grows longer and longer throughout the book. According to Sam-I-Am, there is nowhere you can’t eat green eggs and ham!

The Cat in the Hat                                             

Dick and Sally are stuck inside with nothing to do on a cold rainy day — until a giant cat in a hat shows up and wreaks havoc on their home! Written in 1957, The Cat in the Hat and Dr. Seuss’ wacky rhyming style changed the way children learned how to read.

Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?

Written for babies, this classic Dr. Seuss book introduces them to all the sounds in the world. Cows “moo,” eggs “sizzle,” and thunder goes “boom.” The world will never run out of sounds!

The Lorax

Dr. Seuss uses the voice of the Lorax, a furry, earth-conscious creature, to drive home the                                                                                                               importance of conserving our world for future generations.

Hop on Pop

“Pat sits on a hat and on a cat and on a bat…but a cactus? Pat must NOT sit on that!”This “simplest Seuss for the youngest use” is a Beginner Book classic that has been encouraging young children to read all by themselves for generations.


Oh, the Places You’ll Go!  

Whether it’s for a nursery school, high school, or college grad, Dr. Seuss’ graduation speech in this classic book rings true for all ages. Touching on life’s highs (soaring to high heights and seeing great sights), and lows (being left in a Lurch on a prickle-ly perch), Dr. Seuss delivers his simple yet profound message in his typical humorous fashion.

One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish

“Today is gone. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.” This classic Beginner Book celebrates how much fun using your imagination can be. The colorful cast of characters and their silly antics (have you ever heard of a winking Yink who drinks pink ink?) introduces young readers to the wildly entertaining world of Dr. Seuss.

Horton Hears a Who!  

Children learn kindness and compassion in this timeless and comical classic. With Dr. Seuss’ hilarious rhymes and eye-catching illustrations, his message rings loud and clear — “a person’s a person, no matter how small.”
