But that's just it! That's tokenism right there. Only one children's writer gets mad props???

I could list more if you'd like. They have an entire field of awards for children's authors after all.

One of our favorites here at my house is Gary Paulson. His not being known to everyone doesn't undercut his contributions. imo

"Green Eggs and Ham"
Author: Dr. Seuss
Copies Sold: 8.1 million

Hardcover

"Green Eggs and Ham" is Dr. Seuss's most popular book, selling more than 8 million copies since 1960. Seuss uses only 50 simple words as Sam-I-Am tries to convince a grumpy sourpuss that green eggs and ham are delightful to eat.

Dr. Seuss deserves much credit, there's no telling how many children that man taught to read with his simplistic prose and catchy characters. I know my kid was one of them.

His favorite was "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish" and it isn't one the easier reads for ages 3 and 4, but it had him reading at an earlier age than I did.

Some of it is quite profound.
