A great video covering interesting facts about children’s books we grew up with such as Dr. Seuess books. With “Green Eggs and Ham”, did you know the book was written because Seuss’s editor bet him that he couldn’t write a book with 50 words or less. And “The Cat in The Hat” was written because Seuss he thought that kids needed a more interesting way to learn words.
In the early draft of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” there was a sixth child named Miranda Piker, but sadly was grounded into power when she refused to listen to him.
And “Curious George” would not have existed if Margaret and H. A. Rey did not take the manuscript when they fled France to escape the Nazi’s during WW2.
