MORELAND â€” To celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday Wednesday, Moreland Elementary students were treated to fairy tales spun by master storyteller Daniel Bishop from Montpelier.
(Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, would have been 107 years old Wednesday. Geisel died in 1991.)
At Moreland, students "oohed," "awed" and laughed at all the right places as Bishop told the tales of "Jack and the Beanstalk" and "The Little Red Hen."
Moreland librarian Susan Otterstrom invited Bishop to speak because "I thought it would be a fun treat for the kids."
