31 Authors Children Love: Theodore Geisel

Here is a favorite children’s author that I’m guessing everyone knows well. Dr. Seuss is probably the best known children’s author of all time.

But there’s a good reason for that and the reason is, whether writing as Dr. Seuss or Theo. LeSieg: his books are fun.

If I had to choose one favorite I think I’d choose:

Horton is one of the best characters in children’s books: loyal, true, and kind. (See also: Horton Hatches the Egg)

More books by this author (there are so many, this is just the tip of the iceberg!):








Some of these books are great for new readers (Hop on Pop, The Cat in the Hat) and some are more involved stories that make a good read aloud (The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, the books about Horton). There are so many books by this author, this is just a small sampling. You can usually find one in any pediatrician’s waiting room, they remain popular at most libraries, and I think we have between 12-15 in our home.

  1. Here’s a “Your Mama” joke for you. Your Mama is so old that she got these books in a Beginning Reader monthly book club when some of them were being published FOR THE FIRST TIME! I think the only original I have left – with cover no less – is Ten Apples Up On Top by Theo. LeSieg, copyright 1961. I got my copy in 1966-1967. I know this because I was in the book club in first grade.

    I don’t remember owning it, but my favorite was the 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins. It held a lot of drama for a beginning reader. :)
