Stump the Chumps – August 21, 2014

Today on “Stump the Chumps” we were asked, “What was Dr. Seuss’s first children’s book?” After being told we had probably never heard of this book before, our answer became a new, delightful and totally made up children’s book called, “When the Aliens Ate My Mom, They Went ‘Nom, Nom, Nom’”

That was incorrect. The correct answer is, “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street”, which he wrote in 1936. And, it’s important to note, that Dr. Seuss (real name Theodor Seuss Geisel) had that first book rejected by 27 publishers.

 

 

Here’s a link to the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden (who knew?) and his biography.

 

And now, courtesy of YouTube, is Aunty Carmen reading “And to Think That I SAR It on Mulberry Street”

(I believe she’s from Australia)
