The Statistical Dominance of Dr. Seuss
Nearly twenty-five years after his death, Dr. Seuss continues to dominate the world of children’s books to an astonishing degree.
Today, one in four children’s first book is one penned by Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss’s given name). The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, all published prior to 1970, remain among today’s bestselling children’s books. The Grinch might have stolen Christmas, but Geisel stole all our hearts.
