Second graders at Sallas Mahone Elementary School spent the day learning about Theodor Seuss Geisel known to many of us as Dr. Seuss.

Teachers say he helped paved the road to getting more students interested in reading.

"He knew how to do the pictures, words and just the different things to draw the attention and when you are reading to kids and telling stories," said Sallas Mahone Media Specialist Michelle Beaufort. "They remember that more than the lessons you teach."

"His rhyming words and I like rhyming words," said Sallas Mahone student Gabe Moore.

Dr. Seuss would have turned 107 years old Wednesday.
