The kids weren't just celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday. It's also Principal Doug Workman's birthday who happens to be Renie's dad. Happy birthday to him!

Not far away, Sharla McBride was up early to read to students at Whittier Elementary in Scranton.

She read the Dr. Seuss classic "Fox in Sox" to kindergartners there.

Saturday is the official birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel. He died in 1991 at the age of 87.
