Aug 12, 2010 - Today marks the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Dr. Seuss's seminal piece of “I can read it myself” kiddy lit – purportedly the result of a $50 bet between Theodore Geisel aka Dr. Seuss and his publisher, Bennett Cerf,  that the  doctor couldn’t write a book with only a fifty word vocabulary.

He could and did!
