Jacquelyn Martin
First lady Michelle Obama, with Dr. Seuss characters, reads to students as part of her "Let's Move, Let's Read!" initiative, last month in the East Room of the White House.

March 2 is the birthday of Theodor Geisel, better known to readers everywhere as Dr. Seuss. He would have turned 111 this year.

KPLU's Kirsten Kendrick and Ed Ronco remembered the children's author during Monday's Morning Edition ... in full Seussian rhyme.


There are celebrations planned at the Seattle Children's Museum.And it's been deemed "Read Across America Day" by the National Education Association. 

Here's a full biography of Theodor Geisel.

Ed Ronco is a former KNKX producer and reporter and hosted All Things Considered for seven years.
