In 1993, I spent six weeks reading Dr. Seuss books to an ESL (English as a Second Language) kindergarten class in one of the toughest schools in the city. It was a program designed to get police and firefighters into the city schools to be role models. We were supposed to follow a set course, starting with The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, and some others. I never understood those books when I was little. I still don’t.
