Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Gail Krause
Nonsense rhymes in the Dr. Seuss tradition that allows young readers to reinforce consonant blends and meter as they read aloud, makes this book a welcomed tool for the nursery school teacher, the reading specialist, and the home-schooling parent, as they use There's a Zamp in My Lamp to reinforce concepts in the emergent reader. The rhyming tongue twisters hold the child's interest as well as the adult's. The interactive tabs, which allow the Seussical creatures to appear and disappear on every page, make it intriguing and fun for the younger reader, and helps keep them focused on the rhyme. Adapted from There's a Wocket in my Pocket! the story is part of the "Bright and Early Playtime Book" series. Large print, easy vocabulary, and bright illustrations will make it a child's favorite to be read repeatedly, and its solid, double cardboard construction will insure that it last through years of reading.
