  Abstract: Once upon a time your students' imaginations and curiosity were unleashed through the fantasy of their first picture books. We can recapture some of that excitement if we reopen the classic books and allow them to guide us as we explore the real world in our high school classes. Let us examine some new examples of how children's books can model science processes, lead to science investigations and even act as assessment. This paper is follow-up to the "Seuss Science" presentation given at the Portland Summer Meeting. Additional books not mentioned in that paper will be used.
