    “Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!” And perhaps now, with KidsWork Children’s Museum’s updated 911 exhibit, children will be doing more of what Dr. Seuss thought up in “Oh, the Things you can Think!” so many years ago. Nicole Underwood, executive director at KidsWork Children’s Museum in Frankfort, said the new exhibit was made possible through donations from the museum’s annual dinner. For the grand opening of the exhibit on April 12, may of those donors were there to celebrate and investigate the new features on their own.
