My Medical Remake of Dr. Seuss's ABC Book


Theodor Seuss Geisel (affectionately known as Dr. Seuss) was born today in 1904. His books have delighted children and parents for generations, include my own. Thus, I pay tribute to Dr. Seuss with a medical version of his famous ABC book. I hope you enjoy it. If so, please share with others.
