Dr. Seuss: Great Doodler (Step Into Reading Level 3)
A Step 3 Biography Reader about Theodor Geisel and his transformation from a doodler into the beloved Dr. Seuss. Little Ted Geisel always had a sketchpad and pencil in hand. He was a Boy Scout with a penchant for creating zany creatures. He grew up with a love of books and words from his mother, and his inventor father spawned a wildly imaginative and perfectionist side. It's no wonder that these qualities led to the beloved work of Dr. Seuss, the Great Doodler.
