The smell of green eggs and ham filled the halls of McEachron Elementary School Monday.

Topeka Chef Will Wright cooked up the dish while delighting students with the Dr. Seuss book by the same name.

Wright was just one of several area leaders visiting McEachron students to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday. The author would have turned 105 years old March 2nd.

13's Melissa Brunner read "And to Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street" to the first grade students.

McEachron stages the event every year to celebrate Dr. Seuss and foster a love of reading in their students.

Kids honored the birthday of the master of the rhyme with visits from guests who could spare some time!

"Green eggs and ham" were by one reader cooked -- while these first-graders thought the work of a news person shouldn't be overlooked!
