Help us, Dr. Seuss. You’re our only hope. That was our feeling Monday, when Glendale and Burbank joined countless other cities across America — and possibly the world — in honoring the birthday of the legendary children’s author, Theodor Seuss Geisel, who died in 1991.

Irma Lemus MAGNOLIA PARK -- Marie Shively remembers when her son, all of 4 years old, read Dr. Seuss' "Green Eggs and Ham" from cover to cover - out loud.
