"Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, waterbugs, tadpoles, frogs & turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, hickory nuts, trees to climb, animals to pet, hayfields, pine cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets – and any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of his education." -Luther Burbank 1849 - 1926

Dr. Suess: The Philosopher

Ted Geisel, a childless cartoonist, published his first book, And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street in 1937. From that day forward, he was known as Dr. Suess.

Wild illustrations, combined with rhymes full of nonsensical words, unlocked new doors in the brains of children everywhere, giving them the right to exaggerate and dream wild dreams.

Many of Suess' books tackle serious problems like racism (The Sneetches), nuclear war (The Butter Battle Book), and social injustice (Yretle the Turtle), It sounds pretty depressing, but colorful illustrations and silly verse give a totally new perspective on trying to solve these problems facing humankind.

Perhaps Dr. Suess' most controversial book, and greatest contribution to the world of Ecology is The Lorax. The Lorax is a story about pollution and unwise use of resources. The setting is an imaginary forest of Truffula Trees.

Throughout the book, as the forest disappears, a strange little character, called the Lorax, keeps popping up to defend the wilderness.
