Original Unpublished Dr. Seuss Manuscript and Additional Work Found in Author’s Home

An original manuscript with accompanying sketches by Dr. Seuss, aka Ted Geisel, was discovered in the La Jolla, Calif. home of the late beloved children’s author.

What Pet Should I Get? will be published on July 28 by Random House Children’s Books, announced Barbara Marcus, president & publisher, and Susan Brandt, president, licensing and marketing, Dr. Seuss Enterprises, L.P.

A box filled with pages of text and sketches was found shortly after Ted’s death in 1991 when his widow Audrey Geisel was remodeling her home. At that time it was set aside with other of Ted’s materials.

It was rediscovered in the fall of 2013 by Mrs. Geisel and Claudia Prescott—Ted Geisel’s longtime secretary and friend—when they were cleaning out his office space. They reviewed the materials, finding the full text and illustrations for What Pet Should I Get? among other work. See the full release to learn more.

Deloitte Consumer Spending Index Hits a 51-Month High

The Deloitte Consumer Spending Index increased in January, reaching its highest level since September 2010. The Index tracks consumer cash flow as an indicator of future consumer spending.

“The Deloitte Consumer Spending Index increased in January, hitting a 51-month peak,” said Daniel Bachman, Deloitte’s senior U.S. economist. “The increase is due to positive contributions from all four components of the index. The sharp drop in unemployment insurance claims is in line with a steady recovery in the U.S. labor market and augurs well for continued increased consumer spending. Additionally, January gas prices decreased 41% from this time last year, to a national average of $2.12 per gallon. That translates into an extra $994 in consumers’ pockets annually.” See the full release to learn more.

 IBM Study: The Real Story Behind Millennials in the Workplace

A new IBM study reveals that pretty much everything you thought you knew about Millennials could well be wrong. They aren’t the “lazy, entitled, selfish and shallow” workers that many believe them to be.

The results of the global, multigenerational study “Myths, Exaggerations and Uncomfortable Truths” found that the fundamental distinction between Millennials and older employees is their digital proficiency, which comes from growing up immersed in a digital world.

But, for things like career goals, employee engagement, preferred leadership styles and recognition, the study shows that Millennials share many of the same attitudes as Gen X and Baby Boomer employees. See the full release to learn more about the study.
