2006 Giesel Award

We knew him as Dr. Seuss.

He taught a generation how to read and infused our culture with icons of his creation. It's fitting that when the American Library Association wanted to create an award that recognized "the author and illustrator of the most distinguished contribution to the body of beginning reader books published in the United States", that they named the award after Dr. Seuss.

Of course, they used his real name and just stuck the Seuss in the middle, making it the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award.

The first Theodor Seuss Geisel Award was given out this year.

The medal winner was Henry and Mudge and the Great Grandpas by Cynthia Rylant and illustrated by Sucie Stevenson.
