As is typical for Dr. Seuss, this book combines simple rhymes with nonsense.There is great value for young readers in reading nonsense words. It teaches them to quickly and automatically sound out words they have never seen before. And there's not much plot. This, too, is an advantage - when you're struggling to read you're likely to lose track of what you've read by the end of the sentence. If you have to think back three pages for everything to make sense, well, that's frustrating!Some of the words are a little difficult for VERY early readers - bureau springs to mind.

This is a fun book of made up creatures hanging out in this little boy's house. All the creatures rhyme with an object in the house. This book is fun to get the kids to sound out the made up creatures by what object it matches in the room.

This is a story that helps children understand that monsters can be friendly and funny, not always scary. Great rhyming patters with good illustrations for kids to enjoy.

This is a great little book to read to kindergarten because it uses fun rhyming words. Children love hearing the made-up names of the creatures in this book, and also like to make up names of their own.This was a very cute book to read aloud. I read this book during Dr. Seuss week at the elementary schools. My students enjoyed listening to the book as well as coming up with creative names to call their own imaginative creatures. It was a short book, so I read another Dr. Seuss book along with this one.

It's not as popular as "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish," "Green Eggs and Ham," or some other well-known Dr. Seuss book, but it's my favorite. In his classic rhyming style, using small and made-up words, Seuss describes various "monsters" hidden all over a young boy's home. In the end, though, the monsters aren't that scary. I love picking my favorite monster; it changes every time.

This is good for teaching rhyme. The reading level is 'Bright and Early Books for Beginning Beginners'.Page one reads:"Did youever have the feelingthere's a WASKETin yourBASKET?"

This is a wonderful story with a catchy rhythm. It begins with a bouy who gives a tour of his house showing off the crazy creatures that all rhyme with items in it. A nicely done fantasy story.

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.

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.
