    Fun Dr. Suess Book

    One of the best of the older Dr.Suess books. It was my son's favorite and now I'm reading it to my grandson. The book reads quickly and the rhyming words are great for young minds.

    Diging-est Dog, a family tradition

    My kids, now all grown with children of their own, loved this book! The rhyming, rhythm and clear illustrations made it a hit. When 3 year old Jenny was facing a few days without me and this book as I was going to be delivering her little brother soon, I taped myself reading it. She played that tape over and over while I was in hospital, so she could still hear her favorite book!

    Now I buy it for the grandkids.

    My toddler loves with book. "I want Digging-est!"

    Great book along the lines with other Suess. Illustrations would have gotten five stars except they are dated from their original creation date and, as such, seem a bit lacking compared to today's.

    My toddler loves this book and requests it all the times. The dog looks silly and is very sweet, so he is very appealing to her.

    The only four star about this book besides the dates illustrations which, frankly, I'd rather have the original illustrations than something new, is the part in the story where Duke's (Digging-est's) friends decide they will literally let him die. Kind of gruesome for a toddler who has as yet to not only understand death but pre-meditated murder. I know that's a bit of a heavy hand judgment but it is a shock to be reading an early children's book wherein the characters sit around deciding whether or not to let another character, aka Digging-est, die a horrid death.

    Other than that it's terrific and my toddler barely notices the "murder" part and enjoys the book immensely. I think in a modern written book they probably wouldn't let the murder discussion pass editing. Another issue of the book being dated. Case in point, my husband hates reading our toddler Jack and the Beanstalk for the same reason. In there you have a kid who trespassing the Giant's territory, steals from him repeatedly and then kills him when he is trying to stop Jack from stealing again. I mean, really! And look at the Brother's Grimm. Shiver!

    Love it

    This is my favorate book to read to my child. It has a great life lesson in it and My son loves the story over and over. My fist copy of this book died from reading it to my other 3 kids. So I had to replace it in my home library.

    Good book - Don't care for some of the wording.

    Some of the wording in the book is not the best for a small child. "He wrecked our town. This serves him right. Just let him drown". My daugher loves dogs and Dr. Seuss, so I bought it without reading it completely. Although, my daugther likes the book, I wouldn't have bought it if I read it thoroughly. When I read it, I just skip the part I don't like.
