Theodor Seuss Geisel, the man who created such iconic characters as the Cat in the Hat and the Grinch and generally made childhood more whimsical, imaginative and fun, would have been 107 today. Better known as Dr. Seuss, "In his 48 books, he tied up tidy moral lessons in bright, ridiculous packaging," the Washington Post reports.

In honor of Dr. Seuss, today is also "Read Across America Day," so we suggest cuddling up with your little one and sharing the magic of your favorite childhood story. What was your favorite Dr. Seuss book? The ParentDish team gave a thumbs up to The Sneetches -- a good lesson on bullying -- but we'd love to hear your faves.
