Dr. Seuss holds a special place in many of our hearts, not matter our age.
What’s your favorite Seuss Book? Mine is “Oh, The Places You’ll Go.”
This June 18, dancers, acrobats, musicians, and karate students for my performing arts school will celebrate Dr. Seuss on the big stage with our 2016 Concert, Seuss on the Loose. If you happen to be in the Elko, NV area, I’d be honored to have you attend this community event to get a little silly and be inspired by the works of Seuss. If you want to get reminders about the show, email me.
A little bit of background about Dr. Seuss
Did you know that the moniker of “Dr. Seuss” came about as Theodore “Ted” Seuss Giesel was submitting articles to a Mock Zoological association to make himself sound a little more professional?
Persistence is the name of the game:
After being turned down by 27-28 publishers (dependent upon the sources), Seuss’s first book, “And to Think I Saw it on Mulberry Street” was published in1937 by Vanguard Press.
From a man that set out to become an english teacher and was persuaded by his wife and a colleague to pursue a career in drawing came:
– 46 Children’s books
– 11 TV Specials
– 4 feature Films
– 1 Broadway musical
– 4 Television Series
