Hooray for Diffendoofer Day - Dr Seuss

Hooray for Diffendoofer Day is based on an idea by Dr. Seuss(March 4, 1904-September 24,1991). He passed before completing the book. Jack Prelutsky completed the text. Lane Smith illustrated the book.

Hooray for Diffendoofer Day is a celebration at the school, Diffendoofer. The school does not conform with the program of teaching children only facts to pass standardized tests. There is a popular view that the reason for schools, is to produce students who have high scores on national tests.

Diffendoofer school believes differently on the subject. It takes the creative approach. The children are taught to think for themselves. The school has unusual teachers and curriculum. One teacher teaches listening. Another teacher teaches smelling. Laughing is another lesson. Yelling is a subject.

One day, the Diffendoofer students are told there is an upcoming standardized test. The students are nervous. If the students fail the test, the Board of Education will demolish the school. Failure means school in dreary Flobberton where imagination is not allowed.

Test day arrives. The students take the test. They ace the test. Their success is due to the fact the students can think and reason for themselves. Teachers are not daily drilling test answers into their heads.

Hooray for Diffendoofer Day is a commentary on educational programs that measures children learning by test score results and nothing else. Dr. Suess shares his theories on standards-based programs with his readers. There is a special section at the end of the book with his notes.

A creative child who can think for himself is our future inventor or protector of our liberties. A child who learns only what is drummed into their head is likely to believe anything told him by those in power.

Problems can be solved by different means. Remember the saying, “There is more than one way to skin a cat.”

Hooray for Diffendoofer Day! has rhyming verse. Jack Prelutsky’s poetry captures Dr. Suess’ lively banner. There is a blend of Lane Smith and Dr. Seuss’ characters on each page. The vocabulary is advance for the average picture book reader to read on their own. Therefore, the book is for ages’ seven-years-old and up. This story book like Dr. Seuss(Theodor Suess Geisel)’s, Oh, the Places You’ll Go, is a good book for both young people and adults. Hooray for Diffendoofer Day! is one of Dr. Seuss political books.

Yertle the Turtle and other Stories

Yertle the Turtle and other Stories are by the writer and illustrator Dr. Seuss(March 4, 1904-September 24, 1991). Random House published the collection of fables in 1950. Yertle the Turtle, Gertrude McFuzz and the Big Brag are the three stories in the collection. The classic Dr Seuss picture book is for kids between four and eight-years-old(ages 4-8).

A turtle, Yertle, wants to be the king of the pond. He asks the other turtles to pile one on top of another. They comply with Yertle’s request. He becomes the top turtle on the pile. He claims to rule all he can see. Unfortunately, Yertle builds his kingdom on the backs’ of the other turtles. King Yertle ignores the starving turtles’ loud cries for food. The turtles revolt. Yertle’s kingdom falls as so does he, now he is the king of the pond’s muck. What’s the big deal of being the big turtle of the scrap heap? His coveting of power is his downfall.

Gertrude McFuzz is a good-looking bird with a plain tail. Gertrude covets Lolla-Lee-Lou beautiful tail. Lolla-Lee-Lou’s tail is full-feathered. Gertrude, which has only one tail feather, gets her wish. However, she discovers she cannot walk, fly or run. What is a bird who cannot do these things? Her coveting of beauty is her downfall.

The Big Brag is between a bear and rabbit. They each brag to be the best beast in the world. Why? One animal brags as having the best ears for hearing. The other forest animal claims he has the best nose for smelling. A worm happens along and stops to listen to their debate. He decides the bear and rabbit are the biggest fools. The worm returns to work shaking his head at their absurdity. Rabbit and bear’s bragging draws laughter from the worm and other animals. Their coveting of superiority brings jeers from others.

Dr. Seuss’s collection of fables is as stories of old. Like Aesop’s Fables, Dr. Seuss’s fables are a combination of humor and wisdom. His moral stories help humans lead a better life. Parents and teachers can share the story book with toddlers, preschool and elementary kids. Discuss the fables and their message with children. Use Yertle the Turtle and other Stories to introduce young people to fables.

One day, an insect asks the Big-Hearted Moose may he ride on the antlers. Thidwick responses with a yes. Soon, his antlers are the home to a hoard of ungrateful guests. The unkind guests soon place Thidwick’s life in jeopardy. How do the responsible, Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose gets out of the dangerous situation?

Dr. Seuss' book his wit and rhyme in a humourous book about a painful situation. Children view the animals(guests) one-by-one take advantage of their host’s hospitality. Dr. Seuss’s drawings of each additional guest add humor to the tale. Kids are drawn to the rhyming verse just as the animals are drawn to the antlers.

Scrambled Eggs Super

Dr. Seuss(March 4, 1904 - September 24, 1991) is the author of Scrambled Eggs Super! He wrote the Classic Dr. Seuss adventure book in 1953. Zany rhymes and whimsical characters are as enjoyable today as then. The child’s picture book is for kids between four and eight-years-old. However, it is a favorite with parents, teachers and other adults.

A young boy, Peter T. Hooper, recounts his Scrambled Eggs Super meal to a friend. Now, this young chef does not use ordinary hen eggs, but exotic ones. This is where the fun begins. He and friends travel the planet for eggs. There are eggs of the Kweet, Kwigger, Tizzy, Grickily Gractus, Moth-Watching Sneth and other unusual birds to collect and cook.

Dr. Seuss’ illustrations of the birds delight infants, toddlers, preschool and elementary kids. Scrambled Eggs Super works well as a bedtime or circle book. The 8" X 11 ½" picture book is easy for a group of children to view. Older kids know the base words, but need help with the “Dr. Seuss words.” Younger children love to hear the rhyming verse.

Peter T. Hooper is unlike the No-Name character in Green Eggs and Ham. He is an adventurous soul and willing to try new culinary delights. Hopefully, picky eaters will try new foods after hearing Scrambled Eggs Super! A note of warning, Peter T. Hooper fixes his scrambled egg masterpiece while his mother is away from home. Remind youngsters to use the stove and oven under adult supervision.

Children need to have a regular routine. A set bedtime and place to sleep are part of the daily routine. Read a bedtime story as part of the nightly ritual. Read quiet, soothing books to children in their warm, comfortable bed. This allows a child to associate reading with comfort and security. The association will continue a lifetime.

Use the Children Books Site's alphabetical list of Dr. Seuss books in print as a guide for parents, grandparents and caregivers to the world of Dr. Seuss. Dr. Seuss classic books, tapes, Audio CD's, CD-ROMs are great birthday, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Christmas books for young children.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr Seuss

How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr Seuss
Every Who Down in Whoville Liked Christmas a lot…
But the Grinch, Who lived just north of Whoville, Did NOT!
The Grinch hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season!
Now, please don’t ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It could be his head wasn’t screwed on just right.
It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight.
But I think that the most likely reason of all,
May have been that his heart was two sizes too small.
Whatever the reason, His heart or his shoes,
He stood there on Christmas Eve, hating the Whos,
Staring down from his cave with a sour, Grinchy frown,
At the warm lighted windows below in their town.
For he knew every Who down in Whoville beneath,
Was busy now, hanging a mistletoe wreath.
“And they’re hanging their stockings!” he snarled with a sneer,
“Tomorrow is Christmas! It’s practically here!”
Then he growled, with his Grinch fingers nervously drumming,
“I MUST find some way to stop Christmas from coming!”
For Tomorrow, he knew, all the Who girls and boys,
Would wake bright and early. They’d rush for their toys!
And then! Oh, the noise! Oh, the Noise!
Noise! Noise! Noise!
That’s one thing he hated! The NOISE!
NOISE! NOISE! NOISE!
Then the Whos, young and old, would sit down to a feast.
And they’d feast! And they’d feast! And they’d FEAST!
FEAST! FEAST! FEAST!
They would feast on Who-pudding, and rare Who-roast beast.
Which was something the Grinch couldn’t stand in the least!
And THEN They’d do something He liked least of all!
Every Who down in Whoville, the tall and the small,
Would stand close together, with Christmas bells ringing.
They’d stand hand-in-hand. And the Whos would start singing!
They’d sing! And they’d sing! And they’d SING!
SING! SING! SING!
And the more the Grinch thought of this Who Christmas Sing,
The more the Grinch thought, “I must stop this whole thing!”
“Why, for fifty-three years I’ve put up with it now!”
“I MUST stop this Christmas from coming! But HOW?”
Then he got an idea! An awful idea!
THE GRINCH GOT A WONDERFUL, AWFUL IDEA!
“I know just what to do!” The Grinch laughed in his throat.
And he made a quick Santy Claus hat and a coat.
And he chuckled, and clucked, “What a great Grinchy trick!”
“With this coat and this hat, I look just like Saint Nick!”
“All I need is a reindeer…” The Grinch looked around.
But, since reindeer are scarce, there was none to be found.
Did that stop the old Grinch? No! The Grinch simply said,
“If I can’t find a reindeer, I’ll make one instead!”
So he called his dog, Max. Then he took some red thread,
And he tied a big horn on the top of his head.
THEN He loaded some bags And some old empty sacks,
On a ramshackle sleigh And he hitched up old Max.
Then the Grinch said, “Giddap!” And the sleigh started down,
Toward the homes where the Whos Lay asnooze in their town.
All their windows were dark. Quiet snow filled the air.
All the Whos were all dreaming sweet dreams without care.
When he came to the first little house on the square.
“This is stop number one,” the old Grinchy Claus hissed,
And he climbed to the roof, empty bags in his fist.
Then he slid down the chimney. A rather tight pinch.
But, if Santa could do it, then so could the Grinch.
He got stuck only once, for a moment or two.
Then he stuck his head out of the fireplace flue.
Where the little Who stockings all hung in a row.
“These stockings,” he grinned, “are the first things to go!”
Then he slithered and slunk, with a smile most unpleasant,
Around the whole room, and he took every present!
Pop guns! And bicycles! Roller skates! Drums!
Checkerboards! Tricycles! Popcorn! And plums!
And he stuffed them in bags. Then the Grinch, very nimbly,
Stuffed all the bags, one by one, up the chimney!
Then he slunk to the icebox. He took the Whos’ feast!
He took the Who-pudding! He took the roast beast!
He cleaned out that icebox as quick as a flash.
Why, that Grinch even took their last can of Who-hash!
Then he stuffed all the food up the chimney with glee.
“And NOW!” grinned the Grinch, “I will stuff up the tree!”
And the Grinch grabbed the tree, and he started to shove,
When he heard a small sound like the coo of a dove.
He turned around fast, and he saw a small Who!
Little Cindy-Lou Who, who was not more than two.
The Grinch had been caught by this tiny Who daughter,
Who’d got out of bed for a cup of cold water.
She stared at the Grinch and said, “Santy Claus, why,”
“Why are you taking our Christmas tree? WHY?”
But, you know, that old Grinch was so smart and so slick,
He thought up a lie, and he thought it up quick!
“Why, my sweet little tot,” the fake Santy Claus lied,
“There’s a light on this tree that won’t light on one side.”
“So I’m taking it home to my workshop, my dear.”
“I’ll fix it up there. Then I’ll bring it back here.”
And his fib fooled the child. Then he patted her head,
And he got her a drink and he sent her to bed.
And when Cindy-Lou Who went to bed with her cup,
HE went to the chimney and stuffed the tree up!
Then the last thing he took Was the log for their fire!
Then he went up the chimney, himself, the old liar.
On their walls he left nothing but hooks and some wire.
And the one speck of food That he left in the house,
Was a crumb that was even too small for a mouse.
Then He did the same thing To the other Whos’ houses
Leaving crumbs Much too small For the other Whos’ mouses!
It was quarter past dawn… All the Whos, still a-bed,
All the Whos, still asnooze When he packed up his sled,
Packed it up with their presents! The ribbons! The wrappings!
The tags! And the tinsel! The trimmings! The trappings!
Three thousand feet up! Up the side of Mt. Crumpit,
He rode with his load to the tiptop to dump it!
“PoohPooh to the Whos!” he was grinchishly humming.
“They’re finding out now that no Christmas is coming!”
“They’re just waking up! I know just what they’ll do!”
“Their mouths will hang open a minute or two,
Then the Whos down in Whoville will all cry BooHoo!”
“That’s a noise,” grinned the Grinch, “That I simply MUST hear!”
So he paused. And the Grinch put his hand to his ear.
And he did hear a sound rising over the snow.
It started in low. Then it started to grow.
But the sound wasn’t sad! Why, this sound sounded merry!
It couldn’t be so! But it WAS merry! VERY!
He stared down at Whoville! The Grinch popped his eyes!
Then he shook! What he saw was a shocking surprise!
Every Who down in Whoville, the tall and the small,
Was singing! Without any presents at all!
He HADN’T stopped Christmas from coming! IT CAME!
Somehow or other, it came just the same!
And the Grinch, with his grinch-feet ice-cold in the snow,
Stood puzzling and puzzling: “How could it be so?”
“It came with out ribbons! It came without tags!”
“It came without packages, boxes or bags!”
And he puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before!
“Maybe Christmas,” he thought, “doesn’t come from a store.”
“Maybe Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!”
And what happened then? Well…in Whoville they say,
That the Grinch’s small heart Grew three sizes that day!
And the minute his heart didn’t feel quite so tight,
He whizzed with his load through the bright morning light,
And he brought back the toys! And the food for the feast!
And he, HE HIMSELF! The Grinch carved the roast beast!

The Lorax - Dr. Seuss Books

Dr. Seuss is the award-winning and Best-selling American author and illustrator of the story,The Lorax. The classic hardcover book has fifty-six pages. Kids between four and eight-year-old are the target group. The Lorax, like many Dr. Seuss Classic Children Books, is pleasant to all age groups. Besides, The Lorax has a powerful message that everyone on the planet Earth needs to read.

The Lorax begins with a mysterious, old man locked in a tower. At first, he refuses to tell his story. He relents and tells the story of Once-ler. Once-ler finds a beautiful land with tall Truffula trees and green Grickle-Grass. The businessman cuts the Truffula trees and ignores the Jeremiads of the Lorax's warnings. Wreckage replaces the once pristine area, but does Once-ler listen to the Lorax? No! He continues destroying trees to make Thneed, a “Fine thing all people need.”. Soon the air and pond are so polluted all the area's occupants leave. The Lorax are the last to go.

It does not end so sadly. Dr. Seuss gives the reader a ray of hope. On a rock is the single word: UNLESS. Before Once-ler leaves, he gives a small boy the last Truffula tree seed. If this small child realizes, the importance of the seed and nurtures it, there is hope. The mighty forests of Truffula trees with its singing birds and scampering animals will return.

The Lorax is Dr. Seuss’s ecological warning. He wrote it in 1971, but is still an important book today. Today we face global warming. Tree cutting, water and air pollution are major problems. Children need to be aware of the problems facing our earth, their future. The Lorax is one of Dr. Seuss political books.

Horton Hears A Who Dr Seuss

An online summary Horton Hears A Who by Dr. Seuss. The Dr. Seuss Kids' story book has seventy-two pages. It is for children four-years-old and older. The picture book contains Dr. Seuss' zany rhymes and characters.

Horton is the average elephant who lives in an average forest. One day, he comes upon a speck of dust. And, to his amazement, he discovers a world of small creatures. They are Whos. He converses with the mayor of Who-ville. The mayor evokes a promise from Horton. Horton will keep the minuscule community safe and sound. Horton places the speck of dust on a clover.

Unfortunately, the other animals in the forest cannot hear the Whos. The Kangaroo and the others believe Horton is batty. They tie up Horton and steal the Who-ville clover. An eagle flies away with it and drops it in a field of clover.

Horton chases the animals and the soaring eagle. He tracks the eagle day and night. Exhausted, he reaches the field of clover. Horton takes his responsibility seriously and searches millions of clovers until finding the Who-ville clover. Throughout his chase and search, Horton repeats, “A person is a person. No matter how small.”

Again, the kangaroo, monkeys and the other forest animals reach Horton and his clover. They still believe Horton has lost his marbles. The animals threaten to destroy the clover because they do not hear or see this Who-ville.

Horton urges the mayor of Who-ville to have the citizens make a sound so loud the other animals will hear them. The adults and kids of Who-ville must rally together to make this sound and save themselves. The citizens rally and create quite a ruckus. Yet, the forest animals hear not a squeak. The mayor of Who-ville races about town urging the people to make any sound. He discovers a little Who who is not participating. The little Who with encouragement joins the shouting and the forest animals hear the citizens of Who-ville. Who-ville is saved!

Dr. Seuss’s Horton Hears A Who is more than a children's picture book. It a philosophical work of art. Dr. Seuss covers many issues. First, a person must be responsible and keep one’s promise. Secondly, no matter how small one is in this big world, she is important. Thirdly, there comes a time one must do something to help oneself. And last of all, every citizen in a community is important for the town’s well-being.

Children will identify with the citizens of Who-ville. They feel so small in this big world. At times, adults don’t hear them and disregard their feelings. Horton reminds them there are others who will listen and protect them.

Horton Hears A Who has the classic Dr. Seuss rhyming verse. The rhythm is unlike the simple pattern in the Cat in the Hat or Green Eggs and Ham. It is more in the style of King’s Stilts. The text is like a typical story. At seventy-two pages, it is twice as long as the Dr. Suess beginner books. Although, the book is for children between four and eight-years-old these juveniles might not be able to read the picture book themselves until the age of seven and older. Parents and teachers take another look at Horton Hears A Who, it is more than a child’s picture book.

Horton Hatches the Egg - Dr Seuss

Dr. Seuss teaches kids responsibility in Horton Hatches the Egg(Classic Seuss Hardcover). The picture book has sixty-four pages. It is for children between four and eight-years-old(ages 4-8). Dr. Seuss read-aloud book in rhyme contains his trademark whimsical characters.

Horton is an elephant. A loving, faithful elephant. Mayzie is a bird, a lazy bird hatching an egg. Lazy Mayzie asks Horton to sit on her egg, saying she will return soon. Horton agrees. Mayzie does not return. She chooses to stay in Palm Beach. Horton, takes his responsibility seriously, remains with the egg.

Dr. Seuss sketches of a large Horton sitting on the tiny egg cause kids to giggle. Children know how fragile is an egg. They know how heavy is an elephant. In addition, kids understand how absurd hatching an egg is for an elephant. Children will admire Horton’s determination to remain on the job and protect the egg despite the other animals’ taunts.

Horton Hatches the Egg has two morals. The first moral is to be responsible. The second is to take pride in one's work. They are important character building lessons for children to learn early in life. Right now, preschool and kindergarten children have two responsibilities: school and household chores. Later, responsibilities are much more major: work and family.

Share Dr. Seuss’s Horton Hatches the Egg with infants, toddlers and early elementary children. Introduce them to Dr. Seuss’s rhyming verse and zany characters. Open a discussion with them about the actions of Horton and Mayzie. Hard work and patience bring great rewards.

Dr. Seuss wrote Horton Hatches the Egg in 1940. His illustrations are not in full color. The illustrations are pen and ink drawings with red and green watercolors. Horton is also in Horton Hears a Who! It is another delightful Dr. Seuss picture book. Horton’s sense of responsibility saves the small community: Who-ville. The citizens of Who-ville return in a later juvenile Classic Dr. Seuss Hardcover, How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

In Hooray for Diffendoofer Day, Dr. Seuss shares his views on education in the United States of America in his characteristc manner.

Green Eggs and Ham - Dr. Seuss

Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss is a delightful book to teach children to try new foods. Dr. Seuss teaches kids this important life lesson in a picture book. The board book’s rhymes and whimsical characters are a wonderful way to capture the infant and toddler attention.

Little children are picky eaters. It is a chore to introduce new foods to them. Vegetables and fruits are the hardest to add to their diet. It is important for kids to eat vegetables and fruits instead of snacks.

In Green Eggs and Ham, Sam-I-am asks, “Do you like green eggs and ham?” The character, No-Name, replies, “I do not like green eggs and ham.” No-Name, like a child, puts his nose and hand in the air to ward off the foods. He defiantly refuses to eat the new foods.

Sam-I-am tries to entice the picky eater to try the new foods. He uses rhyming situations to get the stubborn No-Name to eat a tiny bite. Would No-Name try them in the rain on a train? Would he try them in a box with a fox? Would he try them with a mouse in a house?

Dr. Seuss gives a life lesson to parents trying to introduce new foods to young children, also. Just keep trying! Sam-I-am does not quit. He keeps trying. No-Name tries finally the green eggs and ham. Guess what happens? No-Name likes the food.

He will eat it in the rain on a train. No-Name will eat the food in a box with a fox. He is willing to eat the food with a mouse in a house.

Green Eggs and Ham works on two levels. Children should try the healthy foods offered by parents. Parents should not quit offering new foods to children. A note to parents who are afraid of this method, Sam-I-am and No-name end the book the best of friends.

Fox in Socks(Beginner Book)

Dr. Seuss’ Fox in Socks(Beginner Book) is a collection of tongue twisters. January 12, 1965 is the original date of publication. The hardcover book has sixty-two pages. The picture book is for children between four and eight-years-old.

Fox invites Mr. Knox and kids to try some easy word games. The sly Fox starts with some easy tongue twisters. As Mr. Knox and children build confidence, the word games become more difficult. In true Dr. Seuss fashion, the zany rhymes and characters go over the top. Children’s giggles increase with each silly tongue twister.

Fox in Socks(Beginner Book) introduces preschool and kindergarten children to tongue twisters. They are familiar with Dr. Seuss’ books, so they understand easily the pattern. Children love to say the word games out loud. Don’t be surprised to find kids rolling with laughter as they stumble over the words.

Add Fox in Socks(beginner Book) to the bedtime book collection. Children love saying the rhymes and giggling at the absurdness. They go to sleep with a smile and a joy for reading.

Remember young children are unfamiliar with books. We have to teach them. Teach kids every book has a front and back. Show children to turn pages one at a time and to read from the top to the bottom. Also, demonstrate the English language is read from the left to the right. Use your finger to point at the words while reading. Children will associate the sound with the printed word. We are creating future readers. Parents and caregivers rock!

The Foot Book(Board and Picture) - Dr. Seuss

The Foot Book by Dr. Seuss is a great picture book to introduce babies and toddlers to an important body part, the foot. He introduces children to their left and right foot.

Also, in The Foot Book,(Bright and Early Books for Beginning Beginners) he introduces children to opposite words. While children learn about their feet, he teaches the distinction between the words: front and back. There is other word pair: wet and dry. High and low is another word pair. Up and down is another example.

Dr. Seuss' illustrations are as cute as always. Children around the world love his whimsical characters. The story books have been a favorite for years. The bright, fuzzy characters delight beginning readers.

The Foot Book uses very simple words. The rhythm of the rhyming text is soothing to infants and toddlers. The large text is easy for beginning readers to read on their own or read to others. Dr. Seuss' funny lines capture children's attention. Dr. Seuss' (Theodor Geisel) book makes a great birthday or Christmas book.

Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book - Book Review

Everyone knows yawns are catching. They are as catching as smiles. Dr. Seuss (Theodor Geisel) uses these ideas wonderfully in Dr. Seuss’s Sleep Book. The picture book has sixty-four pages. This story book is for everyone. Although, the bedtime book targets the age group 4-8.

The bedtime book begins with one creature’s yawn. Soon, in the fantasy book, the yawn spreads from bedroom to bedroom. Dr. Seuss’ whimsical creatures see a yawn and smile at the thought of sleep. They brush their teeth and dress in pajamas in anticipation of a goodnight rest. Creatures distinguish the lights and slip beneath the bedcovers.

A narrator tells of others yawning and preparing for bed. A sleeping epidemic is sweeping the planet. Newsbreak! There are 40,004 creatures sleeping, now. Some sleep walks, some are talking in their sleep, but they all are sleeping. More are falling asleep until there are trillions of sleepers. Newsbreak! Everyone is asleep. Goodnight!

Little children love the bedtime book. Don’t be surprised they are asleep with a smile on their face before page 64. The images and talk of sleep weave a soft spell of sleep. The rhythm of the rhyming text is soothing. Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book's text is done in humorous rhyme. Adults love the bedtime book, too. The only appropriate time to read Dr. Seuss’s Sleep Book in preschool or kindergarten is at nap time. Sleepy heads in the classroom is not a good thing.

Dr. Seuss's ABC (Board and Picture Book)

Dr. Seuss’s ABC board book is the correct size for four-years-old and younger children’s small hands. Infants and toddlers are able to read the book on their own. The thick pages will not tear. It can withstand children throwing and chewing the book.

Dr. Seuss’s ABC, An Amazing Alphabet book, is a Bright and Early board book. It is an adaption of the picture book of the same name. In both books, a short poem accompanies each letter of the alphabet. Dr. Seuss’ whimsical characters decorate the pages. There is the usual rhythm and rhymes loved by children.

A positive aspect of the board book is that the letters are upper and lowercase. So many books are uppercase only. This causes many children not to recognize the lowercase letters. The letters stand alone. For example for M, it looks like this M...m...M. This allows the parents and teachers to point out the difference of each case. Plus, they can practice the sound of each letter.

My only drawback from truly recommending the Dr. Seuss’s ABC board book format is the size of the letters. I worry whether infants and toddlers can clearly see the letters. They are the size of the letters on this page and not as dark. The letters in the picture book are much larger and darker, therefore much easier for infants and toddlers to see and read.

Dr. Seuss’s ABC, is great in the picture book format. Remember infants and toddlers will tear the thin pages in a picture book. Get a different alphabet board book with large, bold letters for the little ones. Use the picture book format with five-years-old and older children. They take better care of picture books.

Daisy Head Mayzie by Dr Seuss

Daisy-Head Mayzie’s parents are in a tizzy. They go dizzy trying to remove the daisy from Mayzie. Her parents can do nothing to remove the daisy. The townspeople are wide-eyed with amazement. Soon, she is a worldwide sensation. People flock to view the unusual sight. A greedy agent arrives to promote Mayzie. The young girl’s life becomes a media show. Flash bulbs are popping. People are gawking and the press stalks daily.

Daisy-Head Mayzie has fame. She has money from branded items, but she is unhappy. No true friends surround her; no one truly loves her. Her immediate family is far away. She cannot go home due to contract obligations. In the depths of her despair, the daisy disappears as suddenly as it appeared. Mayzie goes home. At home, she finds love and peace. She returns to school as a regular, but a happy student.

Dr. Seuss uses rhyming verse to write Daisy-Head Mayzie. As in many Dr. Seuss story books, Daisy-Head Mayzie contains a lesson. Don’t let fame or a daisy go to your head. Fame is not everything. A loving family and good friends are life’s greatest treasures. Unfortunately, we see daily the results of those who did not heed this lesson.

Children need to have a regular routine. A set bedtime and place to sleep are part of the daily routine. Read a bedtime story as part of the nightly ritual. Read quiet, soothing books to children in their warm, comfortable bed. This allows a child to associate reading with comfort and security. The association will continue a lifetime.

Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? - Dr Seuss

Dr. Seuss is the writer and illustrator of Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? The Classic Seuss hardcover book has sixty-four pages. Dr. Seuss’s intended audience is children between four and eight-years-old. Yet, many adults enjoy Dr. Seuss's book, too. In fact, many children will not relate to certain situations in the picture book as well as an adult.

Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? begins with a very sad young character. He feels sorry for himself. In the Desert of Drize, he meets an old man who sits on a cactus. Dr. Seuss, through the old man, explains to the young person that he is lucky. Many people have troubles that the young man does not and cannot imagine.

The fun begins as Dr. Seuss uses his trademark rhymes and nonsensical words to describe the troubles of others. Harry Haddow has no shadow. Gucky Gown lives ninety miles out of town. A guy has a two-story unicycle. On Zayt Highway Eight the traffic is terrible. Ga-Zair has a bedroom on the top of one house and his bathroom is in another at the top of it.

Children will love the rhyming verse and the colorful pictures. They love to repeat the silly names. Dr. Seuss uses a less traditional way to brighten young lives. We(kids and adults) usually ignore the old admonition, “There is someone worse off than you.”

Adults will appreciate the picture book because they, not children, have problems with traffic jams or bathrooms on different levels of a house. In snarling traffic jams, children fight and yell to further stress adults. Stairs do not bother children. Kids zip up and down steps like a tornado.

Dr. Seuss’s Did Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? is a fun picture book for kids and adults. The hilarious characters and their difficulties will have the reader forgetting their own troubles. Smiles will replace frowns after just a few pages. No problems! Just enjoy the hardcover story book like any other Dr. Seuss classic book.

The Butter Battle Book by Dr Seuss

Dr. Seuss (Theodor Geisel) writes and illustrates The Butter Battle Book. The picture book contains fifty-six pages. The target readers’ ages are four through eight-years-old. It is appropriate for all ages.

Dr. Seuss' humorous rhymes and whimsical characters teach children valuable lessons. He teaches children not to dislike others because of differences. Also, he teaches them how tit-for-tat violence can escalate to dangerous proportions.

The Butter Battle Book starts with the Yooks and Zooks. They live on opposite sides of a wall. Their dislike for each other is based on how each group butters their bread. One group butters the top-side and the other butters the bottom-side. To force their views on the other and have superior power, they build bigger and better weapons. This continues until both sides have a bomb which will not only kill the citizens on the other side, but their own citizens, too.

Many adults view The Butter Battle Book as a commentary on the Cold War. The United States of America and the Soviet Union (Russia) had a continuous build up of weaponry. The two nations built bombs capable of not only destroying each other, but the world.

Parents of young children can use the book to teach tolerance. Also, use the picture book to teach correct behavior in school and on the playground. Fighting is not necessary. Today’s children allow violence to escalate to guns.

High School teachers can incorporate The Butter Battle Book into a history lesson. Dr. Suess’s humorous rhymes will capture the students' attention. They will learn valuable lessons about past wars and gain insight into current events. The Butter Battle Book is one of Dr. Seuss political books.

Bartholomew and the Oobleck Dr Seuss

Dr. Seuss writes Bartholomew and the Oobleck. He uses his whimsical illustrations and rhyming verse in the picture book. The kids' story starts with an angry King Derwin. Why is he angry? The sky only gives snow, fog, sunshine, or other variations. He is the King and he demands something new.

Bartholomew is King Derwin’s page who hears King Derwin’s rants. The following morning, the King gets his wish. Green blobs fall from the sky. King Derwin is delighted, but in true Dr. Seuss fashion, the King’s delight turns to horror.

The green blobs or the oobleck become larger and fall faster. They are soon covering everything and oozing everywhere. The Kingdom of Didd is frantic. The hilarity of Bartholomew and the Oobleck comes from turning the pages to read and see how Bartholomew and the Royal staff try to contain the oobleck. As ever more oobleck falls, Dr. Seuss pace increases.

“Beware what you wish for” is the moral of Bartholomew and the Oobleck. Children like King Derwin wish for change. Often, when the wish becomes true, they will do anything to return to the original state. At the book’s end, the king is quite happy with the snow, fog, sunshine and rain. They may be mundane, but he and his Kingdom of Didd are at peace. Also, King Derwin admits his fault in the near disaster.

Bartholomew and the Oobleck by Dr. Seuss is a good picture book for five-years-old and older children. The fifty-six page book is too long for younger children unless read in sections. Their attention span is short. The scenes of the Royal staff racing to stop the oobleck’s flow will delight readers. Dr. Seuss classic story in rhyme is great to read or hear.
