Happy Birthday to Dr. Seuss!

For many of us, compiling a list of our favorite children’s books wouldn’t be complete without one or two titles from Dr. Seuss.  While he is arguably the most well-loved children’s author of the past century, you may not know that he spent two years during World War II as an editorial cartoonist.

While not politically correct by today’s standards, his cartoons provide a glance into the  mindset and attitudes of the time.Seuss Hitler

The collection can be found at Dr. Seuss Went to War, a site maintained by the University of California – San Diego.
