What was Dr. Seuss's favorite of all his books?
It may have been The Cat in the Hat. In a 1983 interview with the Los Angeles Times, Dr. Seuss called it the book he was most proud of--
“I think I had something to do with kicking Dick and Jane out of the school system. I think I proved to a number of million kids that reading is not a disagreeable task . . . . I think I have helped kids laugh in schools as well as at home. That's about enough, isn't it?”
I am a children's book author and folklorist based in Portland, Oregon.
