Print Version [PDF]

Most of the titles in this bibliography are located with easy readers and picture books in the School (S-) Collection of the Social Sciences, Health, and Education Library (SSHEL). Those housed elsewhere have their location indicated below the call number. RBML indicates the Rare Book & Manuscript Library, RBOS indicates Rare Book Oak Street, and CCB is the Center for Children’s Books. Consult the Online Library Catalog or ask at the SSHEL Information Desk for exact location. For those titles that have the first edition located in the RBML or RBOS and a later edition in the S-Collection, the first edition location and call number is indicated directly below the book title. The RBML and RBOS copies do not circulate.

Dr. Seuss books are classified both under his real name, Theodor Seuss Geisel (1904-1991), and his pseudonym, Dr. Seuss. Books written under his pseudonyms Theo. LeSieg or Rosetta Stone are generally classified under those names.
