That all depends on its condition, the rarity or popularity of the book, and the signature would have to be authenticated. Your best bet would to be to contact a book dealer (not barnes and noble) A person who deals in rare or out of print books. Or you could even try calling a auction house like Christie's or Sotheby's
One of my favorite quotes! The first part is self-explanitory, just be yourself and be honest about how you feel. The second part just means, people that it bothers (you not conforming to who they want you to be) don't really care about you. Since they don't care about you, their opinions don't matter. The people who do matter (the ones who like/love you for who you are) won't mind you being yourself. Actually, that's the person they like/love...the REAL you. So just be yourself! :)
The good doctor had written some good children's picture books before his major contributions to children's lit, that would be his easy readers. The Cat in the Hat broke away from the mundane children's readers from school. There was a rhyming scheme and it was different from others and very catchy. There was a real story and it was fun to read. Suddenly reading was more than just 'See Jane Run. Run, Jane, run.' but "Look at me look at me look at me now! It's fun to have fun but you've got to know how!"
If you can write it so that it follows the same rhyme schemes and rhythms that he favored, you will find that your speech lends itself easily to being delivered as a rap, if you are comfortable doing it that way.
Ok well first there are 64 pages in the book. Not sure if that's enough, but maybe it can be. When someone signs there name on it, it won't take up so much space, so 64 pages and people signing it on the back and front of one page should be enough. If not get another one, too I loved all of Dr.Suess's books and my favorite was Green Eggs and Ham, you could also get that one, it has 62 pages and enough space on each page for more people to sign on the back and front of each page.
Hope this helps :) And congrats! And don't worry there will be enough space, the only thing they'll do is sign their names, not write a speech lol You'll be fine :)

does anyone know a good preschool activity that has to do with Dr. Seuss and the Alphabet ?
Hi! Dr. Seuss' birthday is coming up next week ;-) This is a great time for a Dr. Seuss Alphabet activity. There are many, many sites out there with "Dr. Seuss" as their theme for preschoolers.
I do "Dr. Seuss Day" every year and here are a few things that I always do...
*Hat Game: I have a hat that looks a lot like the one in "The cat in the hat". If you don't have one, you can make on out of construction paper. I put one of each letter (A-Z) in the hat and let the kids take a turn choosing a letter out of the hat. Their goal after they choose a letter is to think of something that "rhymes" with their letter, since Dr. Seuss is all about the rhyming! i.e.- If I picked out letter "J" I would say "play"! (Some letters will require creativity and probably some help) It is always a fun game!
*Pin the Eggs on the Plate": This is a game we play after reading "Green Eggs and Ham"... Each child picks an egg (template of an egg that I copy onto green paper with a letter of the alphabet on it). They have to think of a word that begins with the letter on their egg then they get their turn to put on the blindfold and try to get their egg on the plate! (I enlarged a circle and cut it out of poster board and mounted it on our felt board). It's a fun game to watch the kids try to get those eggs on the plate- some end up off of the board even! LOL.
*"The Foot Book": After reading this book, we make a huge line out of "feet"! (copy a foot template onto colored papers and put a letter on each one). The kids have to work together to put the feet in order from A-Z.
*Have the kids name their favorite Dr. Seuss book or character. Have them do a "collage" (using photos from magazines) or draw pictures of things they can think of that start with the letter of that character. i.e.: My favorite character is "Horton" from "Horton Hears a Who", so I would try to find letter "H" things! I always have coloring pictures of the characters for them to color and add to their collages. Some character ideas are: Sam (from "Green Eggs and Ham"), Horton or the Mayor (from "Horton Hears a Who"), Cat, Sally, Conrad (from "The Cat in the Hat"), Grinch (from "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"), Fox (from "Fox in Socks"), Sneeches (from "The Sneeches"), etc.! The possibilities are endless!!
Hope one of these ideas helps!
Can someone help me make an outline for my research paper on Dr. Seuss? Or at least help me get on track?
Write a five paragraph one, those are the easiest formats to follow.
Intro: Dr Seuss..... a little bit of background information, and a thesis statement that conisists of three things why you think Dr. Seuss pertains to your topic.
Each of those three things starts its own body paragraph.
Then a conclusion.
What literary period is Dr. Seuss considered to be in?
He bridges the two periods, as many mark the start of contemporary at 1950. I'd call him modern because he focuses on issues that a lot of modern poets focus on. He's just a bit dated for the contemporary label. I mean, the stuff is timeless, but something about the style, etc. makes me think modern more than contemporary.
Does it really matter?
Is there a series of Dr. Seuss books available for purchase?
here are some links to purchase his books:)
I found some larger sets of books at
I would suggest ordering from the site you like the most and using a forwarding company. You can set up a US address through http://www.bongous.com and have the items forwarded to yourself in Canada. Also, the address will be good for a lifetime.
Whats the best web site or book to find out about Dr Seuss?
Just follow the link above to 'Seussville' and choose high or low band width (it won't matter much if you don't know, you will if there is any problem; in which case you choose the 'other' band width; just computer stuff)--
--And read his biography there (up and down arrows are under the page there to 'scroll' with, to read all of the bio) and also read any other thing that may help your project.
Also have some fun.
Wiki has a perfectly good and informative article on Geisel (Seuss's name)... hmm.
Are doing this activity during or before the fall fest? I would go to a costume rental place, find a costume, and then hold a reading group.
This is where you would set the times, and for say $1 children can listen to you read for a 1/2 hr. or 1hr. Children love Dr. Seuss. You can decorate your area in the theme of Dr. Seuss as well. Be creative and have fun. Or you can have the Kids make crafts via a donations. There are limitless opportunities. And don't forget to go to local business's and ask contributions to you cause as well. You might just get to use the costume for free, or get stuff for making crafts for free....or stuff to raffle off...
I hope I was helpful, Good Luck and have fun.
How sad is it that Dr. Seuss is my favorite author of all time?
What a wonderful question on his birthday!!!
I still love his books, we were just talking about them this morning at work.
I think my favorite is Mr. Brown can Moo, Can you?
I can't think of the title of the other one but its the one where the vug lives under the Rug, and there is a Noothbruth on his Toothbrush!
My kids have been reading other books, but I will have to pull Dr Seuss back to the top of the pile.
Do you have any ideas for Dr Seuss theme cupcakes?
You could make them yellow and have some with blue stars in the middle and others without or maybe all with blue stars so the kids don't fight over them. That would be very simple.
I don't know what you would do if you wanted to spend more time on it but I would guess that you are pretty busy and that simple is very appealing to you.
There are four on this website. I can't get the lost story to work, but the other three do so you can at least have three. Hope I helped!
What is the Dr. Seuss saying at the end of the grinch cartoon movie?
After it says on the cartoon "He himself carved the roast beast" the cartoon says:
welcome christmas bring your cheer
Cheer to all Whos far and near
Christmas Day is in our grasp
for as long as we have hands to clasp
Christmas Day will always be
just as long as we will be
Welcome Christmas while we stand
heart to heart and hand to hand
Well, did you know that Dr. Seuss created political cartoons during World War II? He first became known by putting them in New York newspapers.
Also, he was in trouble with the German government (where he was from) so he wrote under the alias "Dr. Seuss". His real name is Theodore Seuss (pronounced 'Soyce') Geisel. He also wrote some of his books under "Theo Lesieg"; Lesieg is his last name backwards.
Hope I helped! =) I did an entire project over him a couple years ago and went to state. ♥
In case you need them, here are a few more sites. Most of the sites say the same thing. The last site listed is someone's English paper, but it still makes some interesting points as to the politics in Dr. Seuss' books.
