Dr. Seuss published 46 children's books -- so many to choose from and savor! We asked Newsday readers which Dr. Seuss book is their favorite. Here's what they said:

"Mulberry Street" is my fave. And "Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can you?"

My daughter loved the "The Foot Book." She memorized it word for word.

"Green Eggs and Ham"

The first time I looked at the "Green Eggs and Ham" book cover, I had to read about green eggs even though I never liked ham. The title drew me in.

"How the Grinch Stole Christmas!" -- my kids' favorite, and I just read it to them tonight and they are fast asleep. One happy mommy; two kids to bed before 7 p.m. Thank you, Dr. Seuss.

"Hop on Pop!"

"The Cat in the Hat"

"The Cat in the Hat Comes Back"
-Myrna Treuting via Facebook

My favorite (and my children's favorite when they were young) is "The Cat in the Hat." Just today I attended a baby shower for a co-worker and his wife who are expecting their first child (a boy); the theme for the nursery is Dr. Seuss!
