Dr. Seuss is one of the most popular and successful children’s authors of all time. He has created stories and characters that have stuck with us many years after we read about them. He was praised for having found the perfect formula to create books children will love. This thesis asks the question, “Can you use Dr. Seuss’s methodology to create a new book that teaches the lesson of your choice?” It discusses children’s literature and its uses for teaching children and how Dr. Seuss fits into that category. Followed by a description of the different aspects of a Dr. Seuss’s methodology such as his drawing style, his rhyme scheme, and the morals he put in the stories. It ends with an explanation of the process that went into creating a new Dr. Seuss style children’s book and a short description of the new book.
