We turned to our Facebook audience to find out what their favorite Dr. Seuss classic is in honor of this special holiday. We asked: What is your family's favorite Dr. Seuss book? "The Cat in the Hat!" I read it so much to my now 16-year-old, I know the whole book by heart. — Nicole B. I read "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" to my kids over and over! — Marian G. I bought "One Fish, Two Fish. Red Fish, Blue Fish" for my daughter before she was born. She's 9 now and always refers to this book (among other Seuss classics) when she's creatively stuck. — Yaika G. "Hop on Pop" is my kids' favorite book because they call their grandfather "Poppy." I have several chewed through copies. — Amanda S. "The Lorax." The message could not be more powerful. Our kids are our hope for a better future. — Stefanie P. "Green Eggs and Ham" because it is so repetitive. I can get my daughter to read it with me. — Jessica H. "Fox in Socks" is so much fun to read out loud! — Alexia T.
