Since 2006, the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award has been awarded annually to honor beginning reader books and the authors and illustrators who create them. The award is named after Theodor Geisel, more commonly known as Dr. Seuss. The 2013 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award Medal winner is Up, Tall and High!. Ethan Long is the author and illustrator of this amusing concept book. Three 2013 Geisel Honor Books were also named, including Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons. For more information about the Geisel Award and links to all of the winners from 2006 to 2013, see my article about The Theodor Seuss Geisel Award for Beginning Reader Books.
