A Step 3 Biography Reader about Theodor Geisel and his transformation from a doodler into the beloved Dr. Seuss. Little Ted Geisel always had a sketchpad and pencil in hand. He was a Boy Scout with a penchant for creating zany creatures. He grew up with a love of books and words from his mother, and his inventor father spawned a wildly imaginative and perfectionist side. It's no wonder that these qualities led to the beloved work of Dr. Seuss, the Great Doodler. Follow his career as an ad man, political cartoonist, creator of forty-five indelible children's books, and Pulitzer Prize winner. Not bad for a lifelong doodler! Includes fun facts and several of Dr. Seuss's original sketches and artwork! Selected as one of the Best Children's Books of the Year-2017 , by the Bank Street College of Education and Children's Book Committee! Step 3 Readers feature engaging characters in easy-to-follow plots about popular topics. For children who are ready to read on their own.
