Dr Seuss Changed My Life!

Another theme in life-changing books is the work of the zany and captivating Dr Seuss- he might not technically be a doctor but he seems to have his finger on the pulse of what people love to read.

Eve Comerford and Marguerita Still both chose books by Dr. Seuss as the book that changed their life. And compelling stories they are too.

Read Eve's story about 'Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?' here.

And read Marguerita's story about 'Green Eggs and Ham' here.

On the Seussville website there is a fantastic game with Sam-I-Am from 'Green Eggs And Ham' which helps kids read and remember. Click here to play.
