Prescription for Happiness? Reading Dr. Seuss Out Loud

Home / General / Prescription for Happiness? Reading Dr. Seuss Out Loud

Today is the 105th birth anniversary of the beloved storyteller Dr. Seuss, aka Theodore Seuss Geisel, who passed away on Sep 24th, 1991. If you visit the Google Search home page today, you’ll probably see some familiar Seuss characters forming today’s temporary Google logo.

Seuss’ stories are of course fun for “children” of all ages. So if you’re depressed or simply feeling down, reading pretty much any Dr. Seuss book – preferably out loud – can uplift your spirits. Reading the same book to happy, squealing kids can infect you with the same happiness. In fact, I read his alphabet book to a couple of squealingly happy five-year old twins a few days ago and I’m still smiling.
