Solana Santa Fe students recently celebrated the birthday of one of their favorite authors, Dr. Seuss, by reading his stories and remembering favorite characters from his books. “Dr. Seuss,” a pen name for Theodor Seuss Geisel, was born March 2, 1904. His birthday has been adopted as the annual date for National Read Across America Day, an initiative on reading created by the National Education Association. A La Jolla resident, Geisel published 46 children’s books, including the “The Cat in the Hat” (1957), “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” (1957) and “Green Eggs and Ham” (1960). Giesel died in 1991.
