For a change, State Rep. Doyle Heffley was able to wear a different hat, albeit not a "Cat in the Hat".
Instead, the local legislator read another favorite book authored by iconic children's book writer Dr. Seuss as part of story hour Friday at the Palmerton Area Library.
Before he read, Heffley told the pupils who came from Watch Me Grow Day Care, West End Day Care, as well as those accompanied by family, why it's important to read.
"It's a lot of fun to read," Heffley said. "That's something I do every day."
