This is a biography about the life and how it relates to the works of the author Dr. Seuss. It is enhanced with various stars come to life as characters from Dr. Seuss books. It shows made for Tv cartoons, has readings, musical numbers, original songs, and even includes a war documentary. While it would be nearly impossible to include his every work, it highlights the many favorites and explains the great intentions behind their creations.

I'm a Mother of two teenagers who can't watch this show enough. We have always been a family of big readers and Dr. Seuss has always been a favorite. This show is one of the most entertaining biographies I have ever seen. It enters the 'World of Dr. Seuss' in a way that draws the viewer into that way of seeing the world. It is a great time for all ages.
