BRICK-Mayor John Ducey read the Dr. Seuss book, “What Pet Should I Get” for children stuck at home during New Jersey’s coronavirus lockdown. While entertaining the children, Ducey inadvertently raised the age-old question, how do you pronounce Dr Seuss? While Ducey used the often spoken “Zeuss”, many pronounce it “Soos”. According to the book, “You’re Saying it All Wrong”, everyone is saying it wrong.
Authors Ross and Kathy Petra, siblings, say Theodor Geisel, who was the real Dr. Seuss, pronounced it, “Soice”, like voice. Either way, it was a fantastic gesture by Mayor Ducey for the children of Brick.
