I can read with my eyes shut

Yesterday, my youngest, age 6, pulled out his Accelerated Reader books. He shows me the title of one by Dr. Seuss - "I Can Read With My Eyes Shut." I immediately flashed back to when his older brother would read that book to me. He memorized it and then would close his eyes as he recited it, trying to convince me that he really was reading with his eyes shut.

So, what do you think this one does? Opens up to page one, scans it quickly and closes his eyes. "I can read in red. I can read in blue. I can read in pickle color, too," he calls out. "Betcha didn't know I could read with my eyes shut?" he says. :)
