THEODOR SEUSS GEISEL—aka Dr. Seuss—is one of the most beloved children’s book authors of all time. From The Cat in the Hat to Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, his iconic characters, stories, and art style have been a lasting influence on generations of children and adults. The books he wrote and illustrated under the name Dr. Seuss (and others that he wrote but did not illustrate, including some under the pseudonyms Theo. LeSieg and Rosetta Stone) have been translated into thirty languages. Hundreds of millions of copies have found their way into homes and hearts around the world. Dr. Seuss’s long list of awards includes Caldecott Honors for McElligot’s Pool, If I Ran the Zoo, and Bartholomew and the Oobleck, the Pulitzer Prize, and eight honorary doctorates.

Dr. Seuss's never-before-seen picture book What Pet Should I Get? will be published on July 28, 2015. The rediscovered book captures a classic childhood moment—the selection of a pet—and uses it to illustrate a life-lesson: that it is hard to make up your mind, but that sometimes you just have to do it!

I read this book to a large group of four year olds. They barely moved a muscle while they were entranced through the whole story. Afterwards, we talked about it, lessons learned, what we would have done the same or what we would have done differently. We then made our own art projects and the children ran around with daisies coming out of their own heads the rest of the day. On the way to the playground they chanted, "Daisey Head, Daisey Head, Daisey Head Mayzie!" They wanted to read it over and over again. When I had my own child, I bought the book for him. He had a very similar reaction. We have read it many times and will pass it on to the baby sister as soon as she's old enough to understand it.
I've seen the animated special's debut, 'Daisy-Head Mayzie' on television. I read the actual tale two years later. Even after all that, I still like it! 'Daisy-Head Mayzie' is interesting, endearing entertainment that I'd recommened for kids of all ages. The tale basically shows humor of a girl named Mayzie McGrew growing a daisy from her head, and moralizes happiness to all its readers. 'Daisy-Head Mayzie' is a funny and inspiring tale that would blend in perfectly with all the other Dr. Seuss classics.
