P.D. Eastman

“Go, dog. Go!”, “Do you like my hat? I do not like that hat”. “Are you my mother?” How many children have learned these words in their very earliest reading experiences? The books for early readers that were written by Philip Dey Eastman rank among the most popular of all time. This protégé and colleague of Dr. Seuss is so popular that frequently their books are mistaken for each others. P.D. Eastman was born November 25, 1909 one hundred years ago, take a trip down memory land explore your favorites like “Go Dog Go”, “Sam and the Firefly” or “Are You My Mother!”.
