Bedtime Buckaroos: “There’s a Wocket in My Pocket”

Posted on September 27, 2021 by Seth "from Marketing" Spillman in

Join us as we spark imaginations by hosting virtual bedtime stories with “Bedtime Buckaroos,” presented by Paycom.

Storytime plays a vital role in introducing children to the magic of books. Each week we’ll feature a new engaging Western story read by local authors, community leaders, traditional storytellers and Museum staff.

This week listen to Dr. Elliott Schwartz read “There’s a Wocket in My Pocket” written and illustrated by Dr. Seus.

“Welcome to Dr. Seuss’s book of ridiculous rhymes, and get ready for a wild whirl of words! Keep an eye out for the Zink in the sink and the Bofa on the sofa, and don’t forget to say goodnight to the Zillow on your pillow! Everyday objects become the homes for colorful creatures that kids won’t be able to get enough of.”

About the Reader

Dr. Elliott Schwartz, certified in Pulmonary Disease, Critical Care Medicine and Sleep Disorders Medicine was born in Muskogee, Oklahoma. He moved to Oklahoma City during his grade school years and returned to practice in OKC more than thirty years ago, treating both adults and children.

Prior to his medical career, Dr. Schwartz graduated with a Master of Science in Television from Syracuse University allowing him to work both in front of and behind the camera.

For more than twenty years, Dr. Schwartz has volunteered in OKC as a mentor for disadvantaged youth at a local charter grade school. His ability to hold an audience, answer the questions from curious, open and honest young children, and introduce them to a variety of ideas, hopes and dreams has been one of the most satisfying endeavors in his distinguished career. “Believe, Hope and Dream” is an important message that he conveys during his classes.

Lending his voice to the Bedtime Buckaroos series is an opportunity to continue inspiring children in a new way. His words, “Be Happy, Healthy, and Safe” are known by grandchildren, nieces and nephews and students alike, and have become their motto.
