This whimsical tale is great for young readers!
Excellent story with fun and colorful illustrations. Rhymes flow from one page to the next and there aren't too many words on each page so our 6 month old doesn't lose interest.
Wonderful illustrations, and great story. Keeps children enthralled. You can't go wrong with Dr. Seuss.
This book of fun characters was a favorite of mine and I wanted my children to be able to enjoy as well.
I loved this book 30 years ago when I was a child. It is the first book I remember being able to read by myself! My daughter loves it and I am sure my son will, when he is older. It's wonderful and encourages my daughter to enjoy reading. Dr. Seuss never put out a bad book! We are trying to get the complete Seuss library! This book is a definite must have for any library.
This is the first book I read to my sons when they were babies. It really kept their attention and helped them progress in their speech. I would read it a whole week sometimes more because my boys enjoyed it that much.
