President Barack Obama Praises Dr. Seuss

By Maryann Yin 

Earlier this month, the world celebrated the 100th birthday of Dr. Seuss. The White House has released a video with President Barack Obama praising the acclaimed children’s books creator.

Obama feels that Dr. Seuss imparted a great number of lessons in his work. In the video embedded above, the Commander-in-Chief made references to two beloved stories: “The Sneetches” and Horton Hatches the Egg.
