This book is remarkable. 13 of Dr. Seuss's most well known stories, all comprised in one edition. This is a treasure trove for those who love children's literature, and especially for those with children. The greatest dynamic of the book, the illustrations, are completely retained in this edition as well.I am somewhat surprised this book isn't more popular than what it is.

A great collection of 13 stories written by Dr. Seuss compiled into one book. The book begins by telling who Dr. Seuss was and showing pictures throughout his life. Before each one of the stories is an essay written by different individuals either talking about the story or about Dr. Seuss himself. One of the essays was written by Audrey Geisel (the wife of Dr. Seuss). The essays bring another level to the stories written by Dr. Seuss. A great book to add to your collection.

Media: Sketch DrawingsGenre: Fantasy; Poetry Critique: "Horton Hears a Who!" is an example of fantasy because things such as talking elephants and tiny people do not exist in real life. This could also be considered a form of poetry because Dr. Seuss using many rhyming words much like other forms of poetry. This book is also a good example of a round character. We know Horton very well through his thoughts and his actions. We can tell that Horton is a very caring and righteous elephant just by the way he treats the tiny whose.

Great book! Kept my son amused and entertained during storytime. Bad shipping and handling. Received mines in a box with no padding and all corners of the book bent.

I remember going to the library and checking out all those single Seuss Books or buying for Christmas single Seuss books. Now that I have grandkids I can get all my favorites by grabbing one book. These are the same stories with the same ilustrations in about the same size as I remembered them. I loved to read them years ago when they first came out and the grandkids can tell that I do enjoy reading these books to them over and over again.

I have loved reading this book with my 5 year old. There are some great Dr. Seuss stories in here that I have not even read before. I have also enjoyed reading the comments that some of the other book gurus have included in the book. If you didn't love Dr. Seuss before, you will after reading this book.

Having all these Seuss classics in one volume results in less clutter for those of us with limited space. I also have one granddaughter who finds big (thick) books more appealing as she thinks they are more like books the adults read. There are still places for printed books in this electronic age!

The book was wonderful - great value. Unfortunately, it was shipped in an envelope instead of a box. This allowed it to slide in transit, so the dust jacket ended up getting wrinkled. Not so desirable for a gift.......

Dr. Seuss is the master of rhyme, and this beautiful hardcover book featuring thirteen of his stories is a perfect way to display his work. Each clever story inspires readers in a unique way. They emphasize concepts like being creative, being an individual, and being respectful of each other and our planet. Seuss turns the world upside down and inside out, and yet somehow everything seems to make sense. He leaves readers laughing and thinking at the same time. Read them out loud and read them often, because as we hear from those who contributed their thoughts in this special edition, these little stories can have a big impact.

For people looking for a collection of some of their favorites or those just looking for a way to introduce someone to the timeless classics by Dr. Seuss, this book is for you. Packed pictures and illustrations, it includes a short biography of the late doctor, essays before each story which talk about the impact of the stories on both a personal level and a much broader aspect- how it influences readers around the world. The thirteen stories included range from Book #1- And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street- to the very last story penned by Dr. Seuss-Oh, The Places You'll Go. This book was perfect for me because I was looking for something that would give me a wide variety of Dr. Seuss's works. There were a few books in particular that I was looking for, all of which were included in this book. It was also much more affordable than buying the books that I wanted and I got more books. Overall, I would have to say that this book is a must for anyone that wants some Suess on their bookshelves.
