Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Angie Valero, of Irving Schwartz reads, "The Foot Book" in celebration of Read Across America Day!

"The Foot Book is a children's book written by Dr. Seuss and first published in 1968.
The Foot Book is intended for young children, and it seeks to convey the concept of opposites through depictions of different kinds of feet. The text of The Foot Book is highly stylized, containing the rhymes, repetitions, and cadences typical of Dr. Seuss's work." (wikipedia)
