Reading Dr. Seuss to Celebrate His Birthday

March 02, 2011

Today is commemoration of what would have been Theodor Seuss Geisel 107th birthday. They may not get a lot of views, but users of all ages -- tall and small -- have recorded their own readings of some of Mr. Geisel's classic works. While there's been an uptick in the last few days in these type of videos, there are scores of them that exist in YouTube that span age and human experience.

The playlist below contains 10 examples of Dr. Seuss readings that have been posted in the past month, beginning with a father reading "Green Eggs and Ham" with his little girl and concluding with a young woman reading "Oh The Places You'll Go" to her hospitalized father. You'll also find football players reading to school kids, a student reading to his class, and an autistic child reading Dr. Seuss' work on an iPad.
