"Being determined in the face of obstacles is vital. Theodor Geisel, Dr. Seuss is a great example of that himself. Many of his 44 books remain wild bestsellers. Theodor Geisel is selling 11,000 Dr. Seuss books every day of the year, in the U.S. alone, 24 years after he died. He has sold 600 million books worldwide since his first book, And to Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, was published in 1937. And as inevitable as Dr. Seuss's appeal seems now, Mulberry Street was rejected by twenty-seven publishers before being accepted by Vanguard Press. What if Geisel had decided that twenty rejections were enough for him? Or twenty-five?
Imagine childhood, and reading, without Dr. Seuss."
