The Foot Book

My seven year old reads
Dr. Seuss's The Foot Book
to me one night.

When we get to the
two page spread which says
Front foot, back foot

red foot, black foot

he looks up at me and says
Dr. Seuss is good.

This is how one
develops heroes. For him
an honorary doctor with

a penchant for rhyme.
For me, a seven year old boy
in awe of words.
