Back in 1957, Theodor Geisel responded to an article in Life magazine that lamented the use of boring reading primers in schools. Using the pseudonym of "Dr. Seuss" (Seuss was Geisel's middle name) and only two hundred twenty-three words, Geisel created a replacement for those dull primers: "The Cat in the Hat." The instant success of the book prompted Geisel and his wife to found Beginner Books, and Geisel wrote many popular books in this series, including "Hop on Pop," "Fox in Socks," and "Green Eggs and Ham." Other favorite titles in this series are "Go, Dog, Go!" and "Are You My Mother?" by P. D. Eastman, "A Fly Went By," by Mike McClintock, and "Put Me in the Zoo," by Robert Lopshire. These affordable hardcover books combine large print, easy vocabulary, and large, bright illustrations in stories kids will want to read again and again. Grades 1 - Grades 2.

Meet the Author
THEODOR SEUSS GEISEL—aka Dr. Seuss—is one of the most beloved children’s book authors of all time. From The Cat in the Hat to Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, his iconic characters, stories, and art style have been a lasting influence on generations of children and adults. The books he wrote and illustrated under the name Dr. Seuss (and others that he wrote but did not illustrate, including some under the pseudonyms Theo. LeSieg and Rosetta Stone) have been translated into thirty languages. Hundreds of millions of copies have found their way into homes and hearts around the world. Dr. Seuss’s long list of awards includes Caldecott Honors for McElligot’s Pool, If I Ran the Zoo, and Bartholomew and the Oobleck, the Pulitzer Prize, and eight honorary doctorates. Works based on his original stories have won three Oscars, three Emmys, three Grammys, and a Peabody. Dr. Seuss's never-before-seen picture book What Pet Should I Get? will be published on July 28, 2015. The rediscovered book captures a classic childhood moment—the selection of a pet—and uses it to illustrate a life-lesson: that it is hard to make up your mind, but that sometimes you just have to do it!

This book is part of a "book gift" for Christmas for our almost four year old grandson. This title intrigued us...something for the intelligent child who is very curious. Dr. Seuss is a great way to build a reading bond with your child, children, or grandchildren. Our whole family and circle of friends are heavy duty readers. When my sons were young they both had books in the car to keep them settled and quiet. Personal favorites can be read over and over again. Yes! Our grandson has a large personal library thanks to us, his other grandparents, and his aunts and uncles. You can't go wrong when you pick a good book from a good author for a child that you love.
I have fun reading this to my daughter. She usually loses interest in this one pretty quickly though. These board books are very sturdy, they're the perfect size for babies and toddlers. Also the pages are easy for my daughter to turn.
great book... again small but great... my son love it...
