Most kids in Ben Stern's third-grade class at Union School could recite the rhymes in the Dr. Seuss books the class read Friday. Stern's class and others at Union School spent the day reading the Seuss classics in celebration of the beloved author's birthday.

Librarian Patty Farrah provided the collection of Dr. Seuss books along with quizzes and reading certificates.
"We think this is the best way to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday," she said. "We think this is what he would have liked us to do."
