Dear Dr. Seuss,
Thank you so much for showing me all of the places I’ll go! Ever since I was young, I read Dr. Seuss books and looked at the illustrations and smiled. I basically memorized your Alphabet book and constantly read Hop on Pop.
Some of my first steps to becoming a bookworm were taken through your books, and I am so grateful. Because of your books, there were Wockets in my pockets. There were cats in hats, foxes in socks, and Whos to be heard. Your books made my life a little more interesting.
Now, I may be older, but I still love your books. I continue to read them and laugh and smile. I adore The Lorax and Sneetches. I would recommend your books to anybody.
As a writer, your books are gold. You have proven that it takes a little inspiration and a lot of fun to make books. I think I partly credit my author dreams to you, for making me want to write books people will love as much as I loved yours.
Everyone needs a little Seuss in their life. Thank you again for reminding me to stand out, to be myself, and that I will succeed (And that that’s 98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed!)
Oh, and Happy birthday!
