Did You Know?
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
One night while riding home on a train, Seuss saw a pompous, stuffy-looking man with a hat on his head. Seuss wondered what the man would happen if someone was to knock the hat off his head and then realized the man was so full of himself that another hat would probably appear on his head as a replacement. This inspired Seuss to write "The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins.".
He expresses his views in social and political issues in his own books (e.g. The Lorax, The Sneetches, The Butter Battle Book, Yertle the Turtle, The Grinch, & Horton Hears a Who).
