Theodor Seuss Geisel aka Dr. Seuss
Transcript of Theodor Seuss Geisel aka Dr. Seuss
Many of Geisel's books are thought to express his views on many social and political issues: The Sneetches, about racial equality, Yertle the Turtle, about Hitler, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, criticizing the materialism and commercialization of the Christmas season and Horton Here's A Who! about abortion rights. Although Geisel never wrote about or expressed any public opinion on the abortion debate, the line "A person's a person, no matter how small!!" from Horton Hears a Who! has been thought to state his opinion quite clearly. One of the many contributions which is still very relevant today is The Geisel Library is the main library building on the University of California, San Diego campus and contains four of the nine libraries located on campus. The building is named in honor of him and his wife Audrey for the generous contributions they have made to the library and their devotion to improving literacy. The building is featured in the UCSD logo and is the most recognizable building on campus. Contributions Established in 2004, the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award is given annually to the authors and illustrators who write and illistrate the best childrens books published in English in the United States during that year. The winners receive a bronze medal and an honor book authors and illustrators certificate at the ALA Annual Conference. The award is named for Geisel. . Controbutions
