‘Today Show’ films segment on new Seuss book in La Jolla


To celebrate the release of Dr. Seuss’s latest book “What Pet Should I Get?” (considered a long-lost work by the late children’s book author), NBC’s “The Today Show” came to UC San Diego’s Geisel Library July 23 to film a segment for the nationally televised program. The segment, which aired the morning of July 24, featured young children — patrons of La Jolla’s Riford Library — having the story read to them and then reading it for themselves. Dr. Seuss aka Theodore Geisel lived in La Jolla until his death in 1991. The book was released on July 28 by Random House.
