The following childrens books by Dr. Seuss have been given to the Washington Public Library In Memory of LaDeane Crimmins by The Modern Pioneers Study Club GFWC.

Would You Rather Be A Bullfrog? (Easy Reader)     Summary: Would you rather be a dog . . . or a cat? Beginning readers are asked to ponder these–and a host of other odd choices–in this charming book by Dr. Seuss that encourages children to let their imaginations fly.

The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories (Picture book)     Summary:  A collection of seven illustrated stories by children’s author Dr. Seuss published by Random House on September 27, 2011. Though they were originally published in magazines in the early 1950s, they had never been published in book form and are quite rare, described by the publisher as “the literary equivalent of buried treasure”. The stories were discovered by Charles D. Cohen, a Massachusetts dentist and a Seuss scholar and biographer, who also contributed an introduction to the collection.
