Did Dr. Seuss influence your life?

The answer is yes for me. I was read his books a lot to as a child. When I grew up, I read them by myself. His books created a love for reading inside me. He later even influenced my writing because I enjoy writing for children. I'm in my late 20s and I still read his books to this day without any shame.

Am I the only one whose life was influenced by this man?

There were three of us at home that all absorbed Dr. Seuss books. I remember, as the oldest, reading these books to my brother, the youngest. The illustrations grab your attention and imagination. the rhyming makes it a joy to read and easy to remember. We're still quoting Dr. Seuss to this day. A good book is a good book. Thank you and enjoy!

I would have to say that the books have definitely influenced my life, especially as a youngster. Dedication is one thing that they taught me along with keeping your word. Though, maybe the most important part was that I didn't want to ever eat green eggs for breakfast! :lol: :wink:

There are so many life lessons that children (and adults) can get from a Dr.Seuss book. Recently, I was reading a book by a professor who analyzed all of the books in incredible depth. I have to say, I learned there were so many different lessons in just a single book! I convinced myself that I'm going to have to bring up my Dr.Seuss collection and read (analyze) them again.

I dont think so. I read a lot of his books and enjoyed them as a kid, but it didnt leave me with anything particularly profound. If not him, I'dve just read more of other works like Amelia Bedelia.
Hi all. I like board games, card games, video games, books (especially children's books and mysteries), stories, cartoons, anime, manga, light novels, animation, and other light-hearted, fun things. Feel free to message if you want to chat!

As a child avid reader (and librarian in the making), I enjoyed these books. They definitely sparked the imagination. Thinking back to those years and looking ahead, I shared them with young patrons from preschoolers to pre-adolescents. There is so much food for thought in many of his stories.
