Gerald McBoing-Boing

Tomorrow my son's school celebrates Dr. Seuss' birthday, which is actually today. I have an appointment to read Gerald McBoing-Boing or reasonable facsimile to his class @ 9:15 a.m.. Wish me luck, five year olds can be a tough crowd.

UPDATE: It went well. I showed up a little early, just as the last parent reader was leaving and sat in front of the crowd of five year old students. El Segundo and La Princesa sat at my feet and spent the entire morning tossing elbows that would make a NHL defensemen proud. I read about the boy Boing-Boing and because that went quicker than expected and the next parent hadn't shown up yet I read Imogene's Antlers as well. It was fun, kindergartners are adorable but there's no way in hell I could do it for a living.
