Meet the Author

Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904.  After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising.  His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!,  appeared in several leading American magazines.
Dr. Seuss's first children's book, And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street,  hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever!
In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best- selling series, Beginner Books.  This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills.
Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents.  In the process, he helped kids learn to read.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and three Academy Awards, Seuss was the author and illustrator of 44 children's books, some of which have been made into audiocassettes, animated television specials, and videos for children of all ages.  Even after his death in 1991, Dr. Seuss continues to be the best-selling author of children's books in the world.

I bought this book for my grandson's first birthday. A great addition to establish any children's personal library.

At least with this book I can console myself that there are only 26 letters. It's long, but there is an end in sight. My son loves this. My main complaint, other than length, is the use of imaginary words. I would prefer using real words to boost his vocabulary.

Welcome to the wonderful world of whimsical, wacky writing, and crazy, colorful caricatures - ¿Big Q, little q what begins with Q? The quick Queen of Quincy and her quacking quacker-oo.¿ An excellent educational tool, ¿Dr. Seuss¿s ABC¿ is an inspired introduction to the alphabet, both upper and lowercase letters, and also reinforces letter sounds through alliteration. The rhythm is so musical, it¿s addictive, rendering it GREAT fun to read aloud. I own the ¿adapted¿ board book edition as well, which is designed to appeal to newborns, and very young children with short attention spans who are not attentive enough for the full text versions. The text, format, and images have been adapted to accommodate board book standards; yet, the phrasing and prose still flow. That being said, the original is just that ¿ ORIGINAL. It is more amusing, entertaining, and educational, but is appropriate for older children, 4 years and older. If your child is three or older purchase an original version, otherwise think of introducing your infant to the shorter, travel-anywhere format, and procure the original at a later date. The marvelous, magical magician, who was Dr. Seuss, is worth it! Four-years and up.

I loved Dr. Seuss's ABC book. The kids I nanny for love that they can recognize the letters and the silly pictures that go along with each one. This book is great for younger children who are just learning the alphabet and also older children who are looking for a fun read.

I purchased this interactive book and now it asks for my name and credit card number to open? That's just ridiculous...I'd rather have my money back.

I like the ABC Book by Dr. Seuss. This book is about the abc's. It tells you letters and what begins with the letter. It is fun and it rhymes. My aunt can buy it so my baby cousin can learn the abc's. by HM (first grade)

Everyone should know all the Dr. Suess works are just wonderful, great classics. You can read every one of them to infants, toddlers and up and you'll be amazed how quickly they will recognize them. Please, don't forget to throw in some Theodore LeSieg (Geisel spelled backwards) titles as well.
