Like many other subscribers to PMLA and most of the students enrolled in my literature classes, i first learned that reading could be a pleasure when I discovered Dr. Seuss's children's books. The Cat in the Hat implanted the desire to learn how to read in an entire generation of baby boomers. Dr. Seuss (the literary identity of Theodor Seuss Geisel) helped millions of children learn to read, and his books planted the seeds for a more caring, open, and creative culture.
