The Cat in the Hat surprised Clyattville Elementary School's second grade class.
A parent volunteered to dress up and spend the afternoon meeting and hugging area children.
Ms. Sherouse's kids were one of 15 classrooms the Cat in the Hat visited to mark Doctor Seuss' 107th birthday.
"I like it because they're funny and I like rhyming words and I like how they teach us a lesson," said 8-year-old Savannah Pannell.
Clyattville Elementary celebrated Dr. Seuss all week, with activities like Silly Hat Day and Green Day.
