Product Description
Illus. in full color. "Four funny easy-to-read stories all with subtly planted moral lessons."--Publishers Weekly. Amazon.com Review
"Now, the Star-Belly Sneetches / Had bellies with stars. / The Plain-BellySneetches / Had none upon thars." This collection of four of Dr. Seuss'smostwinning stories begins with that unforgettable tale of the unfortunateSneetches, bamboozled by one Sylvester McMonkey McBean ("the Fix-it-upChappie"), who teaches them that pointless prejudice can be costly.Following the Sneetches, a South-Going Zax and a North-Going Zax seemdetermined to butt heads on the prairie of Prax. Then there's thetongue-twisting story of Mrs. McCave--you know, the one who had 23 sons andnamed them all Dave. (She realizes that she'd be far less confused had shegiven them different names, like Marvin O'Gravel Balloon Face or ZanzibarBuck-Buck McFate.) A slightly spooky adventure involving a pair of hauntedtrousers--"What was I scared of?"--closes out the collection. Sneetchesand Other Stories is Seuss at his best, withdistinctively wacky illustrations and ingeniously weird prose. (Ages 4 to 8) --Paul Hughes ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars You CAN teach a Sneetch...
... and these stories can help you teach your kids!

This book has four good, shorter tales:

The Sneetches - Fashion and fads are temporary
The Zax - How pride can keep you from success
Too Many Daves - (laugh together at this Seussy nonsense)
What Was I Scared Of? - sometimes, the unknown is afraid of YOU

could never find this book in the stores if i tried. amazon has every old book ive ever looked for. love these stories the most. my mom read this to me when i was little and now i read them to my 4 year old. she loves them just as much as i did 20 years ago. great book!

5-0 out of 5 stars Sneetches-The Book to Read
This book is fantastic. My daughter age ,11 took the book to school and her teacher created an assignment around it. The lesson was about class and race and that everyone is the same. What a way to teach children about discrimination and segragation in a simple fashion and fair treatment! This book deserves 10 stars. I would reccommend this book for any age group from 5 and older.

4-0 out of 5 stars .
Ah, Sneetches.

This book comes with four Seuss stories. It is a mark of the man's skill that he was able to write a clear moral for each of them without being too preachy. (He didn't always succeed at this, which is why I refuse to buy a copy of the Lorax, but when he got it right he was SO right.)

The first story, Sneetches, is a pretty clear moral about discrimination. The ones with stars and the ones with "none upon thars" run back and forth and back and forth trying to have the right number of stars until they are all fleeced out of all their cash. And then they figure out that a Sneetch is a Sneetch, stars or no.

The second one, about the Zaxes, is what happens when a south-going Zax meets a north-going Zax and neither is willing to budge an inch. The world doesn't stop, no matter how long they stand there, and a whole city goes up while they glare at each other.

Mrs. McCave had 23 sons and she named them all Dave and if there's a moral here (other than "Knock it off with the zany theme naming!") I can't find it. Good fun, though :)

And finally, that one about the scary green pants that walk around with nobody in them and scare our narrator witless until he realizes they're as scared of him as he is of them.

They're fun, most of them have a good moral, and they're Seuss. What more can you ask for? (Note: Some kids might find that green pants story a little scary.) ... Read more

Dr. Seuss in a glowing new format!

What were we waiting for? We’ve taken the classic Dr. Seuss short story What Was I Scared Of? (from The Sneetches and Other Stories), added glow-in-the-dark ink, and created the ultimate just-slightly-spooky read for slumber parties and perusal by flashlight! Perfect for Halloween, this splendidly silly story about a narrator terrorized by an empty pair of pants (which happens to be equally terrified of the narrator) works perfectly well the rest of the year, too, delivering a timeless message about fear and tolerance to boot. Scaredy-pants of all ages will quiver with delight! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars one of my favorites.
This is one of my favorite books by Dr. Seuss. I think it is a really well-written story about the who who is afraid of the pale green pants with nobody inside them. It is a typical Dr. Seuss book, which the typical rhymes and some non-sense that everyone loves. The two characters glow in the dark (if the pages have been under light first), which makes it even more enjoyable for children.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for thrill seeking Kindergarteners
My Son is showing interest in "scary" books. This is a great book and the glow in the dark feature makes this a bedtime favorite. Keep a flashlight handy!

3-0 out of 5 stars We Are Not Scared of Dr. Seuss!
We read this book as a class with Mrs. Lowe in first grade to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday.Caroline likes the main character, the little yellow guy, who was afraid of the yellow pants.Roosevelt like the part when the yellow guy would run and the pants would follow him.ZyQuan said this book was a little scary when the yellow guy hid in the tree and first saw the scary pants.Jesston also said the pants were scary because there was only air in them.Even though the book had scary parts we still loved it.Great job Dr. Seuss!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great great story!
It is amazing that the book shows kids this type of teaching SO thoroughly!!!
Everybody has an experience or two of scared/afraid feelings of getting to know a new thing/people in their lives. My kids are 2,3, and 5 but they SURE understand pretty well of the concept!It also glows in the dark, so it was even fun for them to see :)

Editorial Review

Product Description
The stories of one of the world's most beloved children's authors are both imaginative and entertaining. But a closer look at Dr. Seuss's stories reveals that many are inspirational as well as instructive. James Kemp has identified as his favorite theologian not Barth or Pannenberg, but the inimitable Dr. Seuss. In this readily accessible resource, Kemp finds parallels between the actions of cats in hats, Grinches, Snitches, Sneetches, and other Creachas and lessons found in Scripture. Thus, as the author shares his enthusiasm for the creativity and wisdom of Dr. Seuss, both the meaning and the relevance of many Bible passages come to life. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars ospel a good book for discussion
It's nice to go back & re-read Dr. Seuss, and then look at the parallels Kemp draws with Bible verses & stories.Makes for good discussion.

4-0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable
I found this book interesting, but I only suggest this book to someone using it as a sermon or a lesson plan. It's a good book, but when going with the books concept, you're better of using the Peanuts books of the same nature.

5-0 out of 5 stars For the Kid in All of Us . . .
While reading this excellent book, I was taken back to my own childhood days, back to Green Eggs and Ham, The Sneetches, and of course, that loveable Cat in the Hat.Of course, author James Kemp brings out subtle details in the stories that I never saw as a child . . . a deeper truth that permeates the writings of Theodor Geisel, also known as Dr. Seuss.

A great way to use this book is to read one of the short chapters for yourself, then reread one of the Seuss classics with your kids.You'll be able to share spiritual truth with them in a fun way.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Small Group Study or Personal Devotion

James Kemp has crafted a little devotional book with a substantial amount of meat. Based on the story within beloved and not so well known Seussian characters and books Kemp shares some the basics of the Christian life and faith. Topics like ecology, racism, forgiveness, humility and faith are covered in the thirteen short lessons. Only ninety pages, this is a perfect book for small groups. Though there are no follow-up questions, a creative person could easily craft some. Teens might find the writing a little adult but the ideas could easily be adapted for a youth group.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Favorite Theologian
Our Sunday School class has used this wonderful book as a study in the past and will be using it again this spring.Although Kemp passed away last fall, his insights will live on through this book and the folks whose lives it touches. ... Read more

Product Description
The bestselling treasure trove of World War II political cartoons by Dr. Seuss. For decades, readers throughout the world have enjoyed the marvelous stories and illustrations of Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. But few know the work Geisel did as a political cartoonist during World War II, for the New York daily newspaper PM. In these extraordinarily trenchant cartoons, Geisel presents "a provocative history of wartime politics" (Entertainment Weekly). Dr. Seuss Goes to War features handsome, large-format reproductions of more than two hundred of Geisel's cartoons, alongside "insightful" (Booklist) commentary by the historian Richard H. Minear that places them in the context of the national climate they reflect. Pulitzer Prize-winner Art Spiegelman's introduction places Seuss firmly in the pantheon of the leading political cartoonists of our time. 200 black-and-white illustrations.Amazon.com Review
Before Yertle,before the Cat in theHat, before LittleCindy-Lou Who (but after Mulberry Street), Dr. Seuss(Theodor Geisel) made his living as a political cartoonist for NewYork newspaper PM. Seuss drew over 400 cartoons in just undertwo years for the paper, reflecting the daily's New Deal liberalslant. Starting in early 1941, when PM advocated Americaninvolvement in World War II, Seuss savaged the fascists with cunningcaricatures. He also turned his pen against America's internalenemies--isolationists, hoarders, complainers, anti-Semites, andanti-black racists--and urged Americans to work together to win thewar. The cartoons are often funny, peopled with bowler-hatted"everymen" and what author ArtSpiegelman calls "Seussian fauna" in his preface. They are alsooften very disturbing--Seuss draws brutally racist images of theJapanese and even attacks Japanese Americans on numerousoccasions. Perhaps most disturbing is the realization that Seuss wasjust reflecting the wartime zeitgeist.

Dr. Seuss Goes to War marks the first time most of theseillustrations have appeared in print since they were firstpublished. RichardH. Minear's introduction and explanatory chapters contextualizethe 200 editorial cartoons (some of whose nuances might otherwise belost on the modern reader). Those who grew up on Seuss will enjoyearly glimpses of his later work; history buffs will enjoy thisnew--if playful and contorted--angle on World War II. --SunnyDelaney ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Dr. Seuss Goes To War: Suess before Mullberry Lane
This book is full of very interesting facts and compilations of Dr. Seuss' work before he started writing for children.I enjoyed every bit of it and give it 5 stars!

4-0 out of 5 stars Dr. Suess Goes to War
I have not purchased this book yet but my 11 year old son and I look at it in the store. These cartoons are fascinating, but I was especially intrigued by a group of them depicting the major newspapers and groups creating division among people of the United States. This is obviously going on now with the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, but I never knew that the media back then was pulling the same thing! Very interesting book.

5-0 out of 5 stars History buff husband loved this volume!
My husband studied WWII history in college and is fascinated with all things from that time period.Our toddler loves the Dr. Seuss books, and this was a home-run Christmas gift received this year.Perfect for the history buff dad in your life.

5-0 out of 5 stars entertaining and educational--the best
I really liked this book. I found it fun and educational. The whole point is the art. The book could stand alone without any additional comment. I found the commentary about right in length and tone, but this is a real judgement call. I was very interested in the evolustion of the message from before the war through the time that Seuss left the paper.
I had not heard of the PM so that was another thing new to me. One additional cute personal story. I ran into the book at the lirbary today and read it in one sitting (not a problem with a graphic book like this). When I found it at the library, I remembered that I had purchased this book, but had not read it. When I pulled up the book here on Amazon, it told me that Ihad ordered it on December 24, 2007. Now, I hope that I can find my copy!

4-0 out of 5 stars An excellent reference, but still incomplete
The cartoons collected in this volume are a fascinating retrospective of an early, and largely unknown facet of Dr. Seuss's artistic skill. While it is understandable that it was not possible to include all of Dr. Seuss's editorial cartoons in this book (about half of them are reproduced), it is very frustrating to read repeated notes in the text to cartoons that were "not included" - if they were important enough to be mentioned, they should have been printed, as well.
What makes this worse is that large portions of the text are not commentary at all, but merely restate what appears in the pictures as published. It would have been much more efficient to dispense with the superfluous textual descriptions that merely parrot the cartoons, and concentrate more on the (very valuable) explanations about the background and the persons that Dr. Seuss has parodied in each drawing.
Some of the most valuable comments include instances where the caption that was pencilled in by Dr. Seuss is different from the caption that was published. Unfortunately, these important references are not footnoted on the page of the affected cartoon, instead, they are left buried in the text.
Happily, the book does (on the very last page) include an Internet reference to the University of California, San Diego, where one may (with a little dogged persistence) find a collection that includes all of the Dr. Seuss's editorial cartoons, including all those that were described, but not printed in this book. ...

Using the sort of crazy characters and nonsensical situations that are the hallmark of Dr. Seuss, the "Classic Collection" brings together his zaniest stories, silliest rhymes and craziest drawings.Amazon.com Review
"This Fox is a tricky fox. He'll try to get your tongue in trouble." Dr.Seuss gives fair warning to anyone brave enough to read along with the Foxin Socks, who likes to play tongue-twisting games withhis friend Mr. Knox. "Here's an easy game to play. Here's an easy thing tosay.... New socks. Two socks. Whose socks? Sue's socks." But Mr. Fox Socksisn't about to let Knox off so easy. Soon Goo-Goose is choosing to chewchewy gluey blue goo, while tweetle beetles battle with paddles in a puddle(in case you were wondering, that's called a "tweetle beetle puddle paddlebattle"). Mr. Knox gets exasperated: "I can't blab such blibber blubber! Mytongue isn't made of rubber." But he catches on to the game before it's allthrough. One of Seuss's best, this must-read-aloud classic is guaranteed toget many giggles out of readers young and old. (Ages 4 to 8) --PaulHughes ... Read more

Fun book to read! The rhymes are incredible and very tongue twisty. I enjoy reading it to my son, which is a good thing, because he asks for me to read it all the time.

5-0 out of 5 stars Granny Goose
I am going to be a new grandmother soon and I wanted to get my new 'little person' the books that my children enjoyed the most to keep the legacy moving forward. A few years ago we lost my precious developmentally delayed daughter. This was one of her favorites. This is our way of keeping her memory alive in the generations to come. Thank you for making it so easy to find. The service provided was exemplary.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best childrens' book you'll ever read... FUN!
If you've never read this book, read it out loud to your kids, and if you can get through it, you were reading too slow... Too much fun to read!

5-0 out of 5 stars Oh, my brothers! Oh, my sisters!
This is Seuss at his best! All kids enjoy this book, mostly because of Dr. Seuss' infectious rhyming and made-up words, but partially because it's fun to hear your mom or dad stumble and trip over silly tongue-twisters. My boys cheer if I can make it all the way through the freezy cheese trees. I bring this book with me when I do story times, because it's a consistent crowd favorite. Nothing like a good Tweetle Beetle Battle to get kids excited about books.

Artfully extracted and adapted almost entirely from Ted Geisel's work, this

is a must for all expectant parents - and introduction to the wonderful

world of Dr. Suess for their adorable baby-to-be. Exciting new discoveries are

being made all the time about how much learning takes place while a baby is

still in its mother's womb, and Oh, Baby, the Places You'll Go! makes

the perfect welcome! It's never too early to start them on a rich and healthy

regimen of good ol' Dr. Seuss.

A charming gift for expectant parents, Oh Baby, the PlacesYou'll Go is designed to be an in utero introduction to thewonderful world of Dr. Seuss.Adapted from his works, and touching onthem all from Horton to Who-ville, author Tish Rabe has maintainedSeuss's style perfectly. Your baby is the unnamed star of the book,and reading directly to your tummy becomes easy with lines like "thewords I am saying you hear in your heart, and know that I wish you thevery best start." Filled with the good doctor's whimsicalillustrations, you'll find all your favorite characters, with a shortrhyme that mentions each one--and just enough direct quotations to getthose infants stimulated when you read Seuss's whole books to them ata later date. --Jill Lightner ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Nat's 1st book
I loved the story and the pictures, I'm kind sad because the book is soo tiny... It's a great book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for bonding with your partner and your belly!
Although the size of this book is small, the joy we got out of reading it to my belly was not! It states right in the title that this book is meant, "... to be read in utero" and that's exactly what we did every night. My husband and I would read to my belly every night before going to bed. After about a week, the baby would respond, by moving, every time we read it. We would take turns reading it so that our son could hear both of our voices. I never read it to my son after he was born because we have the original book, but Dr. Suess books are some of his favorites to this day (and he's 18 months old now).
I am purchasing it this time for my best friend, who is expecting her first child. My husband and I are now expecting our second son and we plan to start reading it to him every night as soon as he can "hear." I would recommend this book for exactly what it states itself to be: "A book to be read in utero."

3-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed in size
I didnt look closely at the dimension size of this book and was disappointed to see how tiny it was. I had originally purchsed it as a gift for a baby shower to have guests sign in lieu of a card. It unfortuntaely is too small to use for it. The book itself is cute incorporating the different Dr. Suess books that children will be introduced to. It should be noted that this book is not like oh the places you will go despite the cover being similar.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun book and helps baby know parents' voices
Of course this can work with any book you read out loud during pregnancy but this one is fun with it's silly words and of course it's Dr. Seuss. We read it out loud during my 1st pregnancy and when my daughter was born she recognized my husband's voice right away and stopped crying. I've bought this for a bunch of my friends for their 1st pregnancies.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not the right book for everyone
Unlike some of the negative reviews, I am not slamming this book because of the small size (which Amazon clearly describes), nor its intended purpose (again, also advertised: "To Be Read in Utero"), nor even because it is essentially a laundry list of Seussian keywords inserted into the classic Oh, the Places You'll Go!, itself a great book for children and young adults alike.

But not growing up with Dr. Seuss myself, I tend to have a critical eye when I read them now as an adult. The rhymes are all-time classics and the artwork is both fanciful and bizarre, however some of the messages are questionable (i.e., peer pressure in Green Eggs and Ham), and some of the stories themselves are quite violent (i.e., Thidwick the Big Hearted Moose).

Oh, Baby is therefore best for those parents who: A) enjoyed and fondly remember Dr. Seuss stories themselves; and B) plan to read many if not all of the full-length versions to their child in the future.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not really for the nursery
Although this board book is very clever and well done, it has parts to it that a child under 3 years old will not be able to handle with the care it needs.There are great textures for touching and an adaptation of a Dr Seuss story, which are always fun.I would definitely recommend it, just not too early.

5-0 out of 5 stars Our daughter's favorite book!
A friend of ours had this on her baby registry; on a whim I picked up a second copy for our baby.What a stroke of luck!Our daughter loves this book.We keep it in the car, where she has "read" it to us on nearly every car ride since she was 8 months old.Although it's showing some signs of wear, it's been sturdy enough to handle the rough attentions of a very active baby for more than 10 months now.She loves to turn the pages, she loves the pettable interactive characters and activities, she loves the bright colors... and hopefully someday she'll love the words, too, but for now, we love listening to her babble happily with her book.We can't wait to give her "Happy Birthday Baby" from the same collection for her first birthday.Happy Birthday, Baby (Dr. Seuss Nursery Collection)

This is my son's absolute favorite book!He loves it so much that if he's upset and see's the cover he gets really excited.He's 7 months now and started to adore it at about 5 months.In the last 2 weeks he started interacting with all the pages.He loves it so much and I've read it so many times that I have the book memorized and even if we're in the car and I start quoting the book it makes him happy.I'm going to purchase some others from the nursery rhyme series and hope he loves them just as much :)

Illus. in color. Horton, the lovable elephant, tries to protect tiny creatures on a speck of dust. An easy reader with delightful verse and pictures. Amazon.com Review
Surely among the most lovable of all Dr. Seuss creations, Horton theElephant represents kindness, trustworthiness, and perseverance--allwrapped up, thank goodness, in a comical and even absurd package. Hortonhears a cry for help from a speck of dust, and spends much of the booktrying to protect the infinitesimal creatures who live on it from thederision and trickery of other animals, who think their elephant friend hasgone quite nutty. But worse is in store: an eagle carries away the cloverin which Horton has placed the life-bearing speck, and "let that smallclover drop somewhere inside / of a great patch of clovers a hundred mileswide!" Horton wins in the end, after persuading the "Who's" to make asmuch noise as possible and prove their existence. This classic is not onlyfun, but a great way to introduce thoughtful children to essentiallyphilosophical questions.How, after all, are we so sure there aren'tinvisible civilizations floating by on every mote?

The book came very quickly and in good shape.I've already added it to my classroom collection.Thanks for the great service!SMKass

4-0 out of 5 stars .
I think we all know by now "A person's a person, no matter how small!"

Horton, the hero, runs around trying to save the little whos while everybody else, of course, derides him and even tries to harm the clover for no reason other than that they don't understand.

There is a happy ending, and most children old enough to sit through it will enjoy it. As an adult, though, one thing keeps running through my mind, and that's the fact that the whos were in no danger at all UNTIL Horton decided to "save" them! I keep this thought to myself when reading to the nieces, though. I'm not sure they'd appreciate it :)

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the all-time great children's books
Horton Hears a Who is one of the best children's books ever written. It has everything - entertaining, fun writing, a memorable main character, good illustrations, and a good message. A few people have said that this story has an anti-abortion theme. I admit that this thought also came to my mind; however, I think this is irrelevant regardless of your views on this issue. Children surely will have no concept of this. They'll simply understand that Horton trusted his own mind and stood up for the "little" people despite the obstacles and nay-sayers in his path. What a wonderful message for kids!

5-0 out of 5 stars Horton Hears A Who by Dr. Seuss
I needed the book fairly quickly and received it in a timely manner. I had no problems searching or ordering the book. I teach preschool and I am able to find books and other resources on Amazon. The fact that there is no shipping and handling makes it more appealing to me as I don't always have the extra funds. I recommend using Amazon for your on-line shopping.

Hatful of Seuss is being offered as a full selection by The

Amazon.com Review
This collection of five complete, illustrated Dr. Seussclassics is a "hatful," but you'd have to have a Cat-in-the-Hat-sizedchapeau to contain all the treasures in this hefty book. Within itspages you'll find Theodor Seuss Geisel's exuberant creationsBartholomew and the Oobleck (1949), If I Ran the Zoo(1950), Horton Hears a Who! (1954), The Sneetches and OtherStories (1961), and Dr.Seuss's Sleep Book (1962). InBartholomew and the Oobleck, a non-rhyming Seuss story, preparefor an eyeful of green goo. In If I Ran the Zoo, young GeraldMcGrew decides he would make a few changes if he ran thezoo--including the acquisition of more unusual beasts (such as anElephant-Cat) from places "quite out-of-the-way." In addition to thepotentially unsettling concept of traversing continents in search ofwild beasts to trap and cage, there are a couple of dated referencesthat parents may want to preview before reading to kids. For example,McGrew proclaims, "I'll hunt in the mountains of Zomba-ma-Tant/Withhelpers who all wear their eyes at a slant,/And capture a fine fluffybird called the Bustard/Who only eats custard with sauce made ofmustard."

As for the rest of this delightful collection, HortonHears a Who! is a tale that teaches us "a person's a person, nomatter how small." And of course, you may remember the Star-BellySneetches, the "snooty old smarties" who pranced antagonistically infront of the Plain-Belly Sneetches, or Mrs. McCave who had 23 sons andnamed them all Dave. Finally, Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book is aboutthe snortiest snorers, the curious sleepwalking Crandalls,World-Champion Sleep-Talkers, and other somnambulant types--a perfectbedtime finale to a book that could keep youngsters entertained allnight.

We love Dr Suess in our home and this is a great collection to have!The book includes; Bartholomew and the Oobleck, If I Ran the Zoo, Horton Hears a Who!, The Sneetches and Other Stories, and Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book.My 3 boys love to snuggle up before bed and read Dr. Seuss's Sleep book!

This book is great for children.I rated it 4 stars because I think the book is larger than it should be for children.The book has several stories in it and is rather thick.The stories are great for children learning to read on their own and learning rhyming.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Seuss
Typically wonderful Seuss.A collection of favorites which still entertain and delight childern of all ages!Told in the whimsical, melodic, rhyming style that is Seuss' alone these stories present the challenges and triumph of basic human goodness that we want our children to learn.I highly recommend this collection.I read them to my grandson and notice that by the end of a story the whole house has tuned in and is anxiously awaiting that heart tickling sensation that comes at the conclusion of every Suess tale.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good buy, but Six by Seuss is better
Two of the books collected here are classics (Sleep Book and The Sneetches) and the other three are also pretty good, so this is well worth buying.The now out-of-print "Six by Seuss" however, is an even better value, since it includes five of his very best stories (Yertle, Mulberry Street, the Grinch, the Lorax, and Horton Hatches the Egg) under one cover.I would recommend looking for that book first, then getting this if your child turns out to be a hardcore Seuss fan. ...

Product Description
Illus. in color. "Young Gerald McGrew thinks of all sorts of unusual animals he'd have in a zoo. Dr. Seuss at his best."--Horn Book. Amazon.com Review
"It's a pretty good zoo," said young Gerald McGrew, "and thefellow who runs it seems proud of it, too." But if Gerald ranthe zoo, the New Zoo, McGrew Zoo, he'd see to making a change or two:"So I'd open each cage. I'd unlock every pen, let the animals go, andstart over again." And that's just what Gerald imagines, as he travelsthe world in this playfully illustrated Dr. Seuss classic (firstpublished back in 1950), collecting all sorts of beasts "that youdon't see every day." From the mountains of Zomba-ma-Tant to theblistering sands of the Desert of Zind, Gerald hunts down every animalimaginable ("I'll catch 'em in countries no one can spell, like thecountry of Motta-fa-Potta-fa-Pell"). Whether it's a scraggle-footMulligatawny or a wild-haired Iota (from "the far western part ofsouth-east North Dakota"), Gerald amazes the world with his new andimproved zoo: "This Zoo Keeper, New Keeper's simply astounding! Hetravels so far that you think he would drop! When do yousuppose this young fellow will stop?"

But Gerald's weird and wonderful globe-trotting safari doesn't end amoment too soon: "young McGrew's made his mark. He's built a zoobetter than Noah's whole Ark!" Some of the text andillustrations--imaginative as they are--are obviously dated, such asthe following passage: "I'll hunt in the mountains of Zomba-ma-Tant/ With helpers who all wear their eyes at a slant,/ And capture a finefluffy bird called the Bustard/ Who only eats custard with sauce madeof mustard." And your children may be the first to recognize thatattitudes have changed since the xenophobic '50s. But that doesn'tmean this tale need be discarded; instead, it should bediscussed. Ironically, Seuss was trying here--in his wild, explosive,and sometimes careless manner--to celebrate the joys ofunconventionality and the bliss of liberation! (Ages 4 to 8) ... Read more

Dr. Seuss at his best, wants you to be a child again and as you grow wants you to run a zoo. Great fun to read even if you are a bit older then 6.

5-0 out of 5 stars If I Ran The Zoo
I read this book to our daughter all the way to Florida and back and thousands of times after that.I have now purchased it for my grandsons and it is by far the best of the Dr. Suess books.I recommend it to every parent and grandparent.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Little Girl Will Be Very Happy
This book came in excellent shape and within a reasonable period of time. The description was LIKE NEW, but looked like it had never been opened. Pristine. Thank you.

3-0 out of 5 stars Dr. Seuss is So Stinking Creative!
I have to remember that this book was written back before political corectness went haywire.I had a little giggle to myself about the "helpers who wear their eyes at a slant," and "...from the blistering sands of the Desert of Zind. This beast is the beast that the brave chieftans ride...A Mulligatawny is fine for my zoo, and so is a chieftan. I'll bring back one too."and "I'll go to the African island of Yerka" which isn't bad, but the illustration, of two black men looking more like monkey than men is quite bad by todays standard.

There are a few more P.R. things your wouldn't see nowdays, but you have to date it to the time when it was written.It is still a great, creative story.The first words out of my daughter's mouth were, "Hey mommy, if ~I~ ran the zoo, I would..."

Good `Ol Dr. Seuss.Even though the rhyming got to be tricky reading aloud for my tried at 8pm brain, everyone enjoyed it.

This book actually recieved a Caldecott Honor in 1951.The brain of Dr. Seuss...to come up with so many original and off-the-wall animals and characters in his books.Not my favorite Dr. Seuss book by a long shot but still worth a read!

5-0 out of 5 stars Love it!
I had never heard of this Dr. Seuss book until someone bought it for my son. He loves it, of course. Dr. Seuss always has great books! We loved it so much so that I bought it for one of my nephews since he is also a big Dr. Seuss fan. The crazy animals are so fun and just get more and more extravagant as the book goes on. It is fun for me and my son to read. ... Read more

The Grinch, whose heart is two sizes too small, hates Who-ville's holiday celebrations, and plans to steal all the presents to prevent Christmas from coming. To his amazement, Christmas comes anyway, and the Grinch discovers the true meaning of the holiday.Amazon.com Review
You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch. But are you rotten enough to ruin Whoville's Christmas Whobilation this year, even after Cindy Lou Who nominates you to be the Cheermeister of the event? Based on Dr. Seuss's wacky and wonderful classic picture book, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and the motion picture screenplay of the same name, this novelization elaborates on the story of a holiday gone awry. Little Cindy Lou Who, her cheerfully dopey dad, Lou Lou Who, her semi-delinquent teenage brothers Stu and Drew Lou Who, the Martha Stewartesque Martha May Whovier, and the nastiest, most cynical, evil-hearted Grinch around star in this Christmas comedy. Seventeen color photos from the film are included. (Ages 8 to 12) --Emilie Coulter ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A religious conversion guide for young readers
That may be a bit harsh, but as with many of Dr. Seuss' classics, _How the Grinch Stole Christmas_ can be read on more than one level. The Grinch himself is, after all, an anti-Christmas zealot so threatened by the Whos' enjoyment of Christmas that he resorts to trespassing and grand larceny.

The final irony is that _How the Grinch Stole Christmas_ *does* make an excellent choice for young children despite its religious message--the townsfolk display Job-like patience in the face of a seemingly ruined holiday--because it validates freedom of religion. Furthermore, the book rewards pacifism on both sides, as the Whos get everything back (and perhaps more significantly, win a convert in the process!) while the Grinch is never brought up on charges and instead joins in the celebratory feast. Pass the roast beast!

The heavy-handed lesson? All you need is (pun intended) a CHANGE OF HEART.

Dr. Seuss lightens the aches and pains of growing old with his inimitable wit and wisdom. In this new defense against aging, we follow our hapless hero through his checkup with the experts at the Golden Years Clinic.Amazon.com Review
Subtitled A Book for Obsolete Children, this unusualitem in the Seuss canon doesn't really belong among the children'sbooks. Written to celebrate the nonsense master's 82nd birthday, itfollows "you" (an elderly gent in a suit and white moustache) througha physical check-up in some fiendish geriatric clinic. You aremeasured, prodded, and subjected to all the medical indignitiesfamiliar and unfamiliar to the elderly. "You must see Dr. Pollen, ourAllergy Whiz, who knows every sniffle and itch that there is... Hewill check your reactions to thumbtacks and glue, catcher's mitts,leaf mould, and cardigans too. Nasturtiums and marble cake, white andblue chalks, anthracite coal and the feathers of hawks." It's clearthat the process is going to be long, but much shorter than thebill. The blurb on the back says it all: "Is this a children's book? Well... not immediately. You buy a copy for your child now and yougive it to him on his 70th birthday." Actually, it would make anamusing gift for anyone over 40. --Richard Farr ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The book for the person that must schedule life around visits to the doctor
As we age, consulting health professionals becomes more and more frequent, with more body parts being examined in more and more detail. The extra scrutiny is not flattering; it is more in the line of frustrating, tedious, sometimes frightening and generally boring. Seuss captures all of these aspects of the life of the aging person and interjects a bit of humor into the natural consequences of aging. Few aspects of the inevitable medical consequences of growing old are enjoyable, so any humor or fun that can be poked at the process is of great value.
Dr. Seuss is associated with verse and prose for children, that doesn't quite apply here, the target audience is older adults in need of a bit of refreshing. I found this adventure through the medical maze enjoyable and plan on reading it again right before my next visit to learn the results of the latest sequence of medical tests.

A fun book for kids to fill in themselves, giving a host of personal details from basics such as how tall readers are, and the colour of their eyes, to more off-beat information such as whether they collect walrus whiskers!This title belongs to the highly acclaimed Beginner Book series developed by Dr. Seuss, in which the essential ingredients of rhyme, rhythm and repetition are combined with zany artwork and off-the-wall humour to create a range of books that will encourage even the most reluctant child to learn to read.First published by HarperCollins in 1973, My Book About Me is being relaunched with a stylish new cover design and updated contents.Amazon.com Review
One of the titles for the younger crowd in the Beginners Booksseries, My Book About Me has an unusual interactive twist--youmake it up as you go along. On each page there's something new tocomplete, from "I weigh ___ pounds" to "My teeth. I counted them. Ihave ___ up top. I have ___ downstairs."It's a simple idea, but witha surprising amount of educational value--getting children to nametheir home country, to recognize and draw in the color of their owneyes, learn their telephone number and address, to name favoriteclothes, foods, and colors, and more. Finally, there's a two-pagespread where each owner of the book can write his or her own story.Illustrator Roy McKie's style is halfway between the P.D.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not even in the same class
Total crap.I had to check whether he had this book ghost-authored and ghost illustrated.No clues yet.Did he do it on a bet to prove Random House would publish absolutely anything?

The writing is not even comparable to his earlier, familiar books.Those books were written in rhyme with nearly flawless meter.The meter is practically absent in the writing of this book.Yes, the lines end in rhymes, but the words are no fun to read at all.The book lacks a plot or unifying theme, unless it is that reading with one's eyes shut causes hat sag and eyebrow disomfort.That just doesn't do it for me.

It looks as if somebody tried to draw in his style but wasn't up to it.Several things depicted in the illustrations and the writing seemed to be picked out of earlier works ("mice on ice/ice on mice", as if the writer and illustrator didn't want to stray too far or come up with anything original for this one (other than the "young cat" character, which is in the lame and tired mould of cartoon "sidekicks" that were always added to 1970s cartoons in the second or third season after the writers used up all their good ideas).

Save yourself a couple of bucks.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not so hot.
This book is disappointing, it is hard to pinpoint but somehow this book defeats itself in its attempt to encourage reading.Maybe in the part about red hot eyebrows or later but whatever the case I would read this thoroughly before buying.

3-0 out of 5 stars Sadly, not Seuss' best
When I rediscovered my old trove of children's books and began to read them to my son, I found that Dr. Seuss' works held up the best; many of them, like "And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street," "Yertle the Turtle," and "Oh, the Thinks You Can Think!," are witty and charming enough to entertain an adult.

"I Can Read with My Eyes Shut!" is not a member of this category.

Seuss completely phoned this one in. The art is subpar, the meter -- usually the central feature of a Seuss book -- is inconsistent, and very little of Seuss' trademark mischievous whimsy is present. It's apparent that, regardless of whether he was doing this book for the paycheck or whether his deadline was too demanding, he just didn't invest as much effort into this one as usual. The bulk of "I Can Read with My Eyes Shut!" comes across as a joyless, fumbling retread of "One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish," but with a tacked-on "reading is good" subtext.

Still, it's Seuss, and a two-year-old won't know the difference. But parents will, and you can't help but unfavorably compare this book to the rest of Seuss' oeuvre.

Subtitled "Dr. Seuss's Surprising Word Book," TheShape of Me and Other Stuff certainly lives up to its billing. Inthis delightful book, first published in 1973, kids are encouraged toponder shapes they may never have considered before: "Just thinkabout the shape of beans and flowers and mice and big machines!"Dr. Seuss's illustrations are in silhouette (for the purpose ofaccenting the outlines of figures), but are nonetheless up to par withhis usual wacky, amusing style. Soaring well beyond the mundane arenaof circles, triangles, and squares, here we are challenged to consider"the shape of camels … the shape of bees and the wonderful shapesof back door keys!"

Children love Dr.Seuss! The fun rhyming rhythm even held the attention of my son when he was 6 months old! He's 10 months now and they are his favorite! It's also great that they come in a board book format so I don't have to worry about him tearing the pages!

3-0 out of 5 stars Not quite my favorite
Dr. Seuss, of course, was extremely prolific. What this means for me is that some of his books I *adore*, but some I'm ambivalent about. This book is definitely in the latter category.

It's very easy for beginning readers to read, though.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Shape of Me and Other Stuff
I used this for my preschool class during 'Read Across America'.It followed a 'shadows' unit, so the children related to it as a Dr. Suess book as well as a book illustrating shadows.Nice easy text and rhyme.

As with all Dr. Suess books, this one keeps you entertained. My little granddaughter (6) said, "Nana this rhymes!" Bright isn't she?

5-0 out of 5 stars I love it, baby loves it!
We got this book off our baby registry and I'm so very glad we did.One reason why I chose it is because they say babies can see high contrast (black and white and bright colors) the best during their first couple months and I wanted a book I could start reading to my daughter right away and would hopefully keep her attention - This is the perfect one for that!I thought the silhouettes of the figures and shapes would be great for her little eyes and little brain as they developed and she has loved this book right from the start!Now she is five months old and can't get enough of it!Not only are the high contrast illustrations perfect for babies but so is the text!The words are so easy to read, they pop right off the page - Plus they are so fun to read aloud.And the fact that it's a smallish sized board book makes it perfect for little hands.This is definitely a book a baby can grow into and love for many years!Perfect first book and a great way to get your baby hooked on reading from the get go.I highly recommend it! ...

This book is absolutely awsome, not only because its author is Dr. Seus; it is also because it came in a beautiful edition with hard cover and the best translation in Spanish.
For a little girl who loves Dr. Seus stories and who is learning Spanish as second language, Un Pez, Dos Peces, Pez Rojo, Pez Azul is a great approach to the world of literature in a foreing language.

I love this book! The translation is excellent and the rhymes are very funny! I read it to my nieces, who are bilingual, and they enjoyed it as much, if not more, than the English version. I own both the original version and the Spanish translation. Both of them are great!

Dr. Seuss is all about rhymes...this literal translation was obviously commissioned by someone only interested in making a few bucks, no consideration for the story or the kids reading it. Unfortunately, I did not realize that when I bought this book.

And now, rescued from the newsprint where they moldered unseen for over half a century, we can turn to the cartoons that let us know what happens when Horton hears a heil.

Hailed by Entertainment Weekly as "a provocative history of wartime politics," Dr. Seuss Goes to War, published nearly a decade ago, sold over one hundred thousand copies and introduced readers to the World War II-era political cartoons of Theodore Seuss Geisel, better known to the world as Dr. Seuss. Published to great acclaim, the collection included over two hundred cartoons from Geisel's years working for the New York daily newspaper PM.

Now Dr. Seuss & Co. Go to War presents a new trove of close to four hundred discoveries from the PM World War II archives, including over one hundred cartoons by Seuss, fifty cartoons by the New Yorker's Saul Steinberg, and works by the leading cartoonists of the time, such as Al Hirschfeld, caricaturist for the New York Times; Polish-born American artist Arthur Szyk; and future New Yorker cartoonists Carl Rose and Mischa Richter. The cartoons and commentary in this handsome volume (to be published in the same format as the original Dr. Seuss Goes to War) cover the five years of the war, illustrating changing attitudes and providing a complex picture of the issues that concerned Americans. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Could be better
At 71 I have memories of WWII. Even with those memories, the cartoons are lacking some background. Sometimes identifiers should be added. I don't recognize all of the carictures. Certain persons were mostly forgotten in post WWII histories so why they are lampooned is unknown by myself. I suspect that the selection is representive of the period but 60+ years later ....

5-0 out of 5 stars Very cute book!
Dr. Suess is great and this is a great version of this book.My two-year old still has to have board books and loves this one about teeth!!

2-0 out of 5 stars Not the best...
We love The Eye Book and The Ear Book, but this one is not the same quality of writing (in my opinion).It's okay, but I think there are better books out there that cover the topic of teeth.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not as Good as Seuss's Own Illustrated Works
This book is a brief and playful introduction to the different kinds of teeth that are found in the world -- reminiscent of The Foot Book but not as good.The text is by Dr. Seuss and illustrations by Joe Mathieu; while children might enjoy it, it's not nearly in the leage of some of Seuss's best work, although it does include wordplay and the wonderful rhythmic text he is known for.It is disconcerting to hear Seussical rhyme with illustrations that are so different from his, and the effect is a little incoherent -- not quite hitting the mark.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Tooth Book by Dr. Seuss
I am a dental hygienist and I would use this in a teaching presentation.It would be fun for all children and most adults!

Product Description
Illustrated in full color. Accompanying a manuscript Dr. Seuss wrote in

1973, is a letter outlining his hopes of finding "a great color artist who will

not be dominated by me." The late Dr. Seuss saw his original text about

feelings and moods as part of the "first book ever to be based on beautiful

illustrations and sensational color." The quest for an artist has finally

ended--after the manuscript languished for more than two decades--at the paint

brushes of husband-and-wife team Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher whose stunning,

expressive paintings reveal such striking images as a bright red horse kicking

its heels, a cool and quiet green fish, a sad and lonely purple dinosaur, and

an angrily howling black wolf. Using a spectrum of vibrant colors and a

menagerie of animals, this unique book does for the range of human moods and

emotions what Oh, the Places You'll Go! does for the human life cycle.

Here is a wonderful way for parents to talk with children about their feelings.

With Johnson and Fancher's atmospheric, large-scale paintings bursting off the

pages, Dr. Seuss's vision is brought to life. This rare and beautiful book is

bound to appeal to both the innocent young and the most sophisticated seniors.

Amazon.com Review
The words and illustrations of Dr. Seuss have alway seemedinseparable--a peerless fusion of verbal and visual wit. Yet when thegood doctor wrote the manuscript for My Many Colored Days in 1973, hespecified that the book should be illustrated by "a great color artistwho will not be dominated by me." Twenty-three years later, he hasgotten his wish.Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher have produced a seriesof rich, painterly images that could never be mistaken forfaux-Seuss. They have, however, caught something of his simplicity,and just as important, his sense of whimsy. ... Read more

Great rhyming book for little ones. Also like many Dr Suess books has an underlying message.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great kid book
I got this from the library today. When I saw it on the shelf I did not think it was a Dr.Seuss book and almost did not pick thebook up. That just shows you really cannot judge a book by its cover. The pictures in the book look like something children would draw and I think that is part of why my children find it intriguing. The ryming helps the story flow and teaches kids about colors and helps them use colors to relate their feelings.

"But when my days are Happy Pink it's great to jump and just not think."

2-0 out of 5 stars Purple is sad?And other bizarre color associations...
I'm a school social worker so I spend lots of time talking with elementary aged children about feelings & doing art therapy.I thought this book could be helpful in facilitating some conversations.ABSOLUTELY NOT.This book, unfortunately has several very bizarre color associations that I did not find helpful, and in fact, found to be downright confusing.To top it off, the book sends negative messages about the colors black, brown, and purple.

Here are the associations:
red = brave(most kids I have worked with use red for anger)
blue = bright, flapping wings (uh, didn't we learn from Joni Mitchell or Picasso?Blue can be sad & longing or CALM or peaceful... but since when is it bright & flapping???)
brown = slow & low low down
yellow - whee! busy buzzy bee
gray = nothing moves / everything is gray.
orange = circus seal
green = deep deep cool & quiet.
purple = sad.groan.dragging.walking alone
pink = happy (& impulsive: "it's great to jump and just not think.")
black = mad.loud.howl.growling.

I found the odd associations and language to be very off-putting.Some colors are paired with feelings that don't match in my mind at all, and others aren't even paired with feeling words, but moreso with animals.If you don't mind the weird match ups, the book might be fine for you.Otherwise, steer clear.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must for your Seuss Collection
Our three year old daughter loves this book!A great book for talking about the different emotions that a person can feel.Also great for learning colors.A must for your Seuss collection.

1-0 out of 5 stars Negative portrayal of "Black" and "Brown" colors
I was really excited about this book when I first saw it.The artwork is beautiful, with bright and vibrant colors.But then I got to the pages describing black and brown as being low and mad.How could I read this book to my brown/black child?She will already hear messages as she gets older that black and brown are negative.I did not want to start impressing on her these messages at home.I'm disappointed that Seuss would present such negative words for these colors that are used to also describe groups of people.I'm shocked by the insensitivity to issues of diversity, especially as this book was published not so long ago, relative to his other books.Needless to say, I wasn't comfortable reading this book to my child and returned it.A much better book to teach about colors is Brown Bear, Brown Bear Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?: 40th Anniversary Edition (Brown Bear and Friends). ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Green Eggs and Ham book review
Dr. Seuss breaks down the limitation of the norm with the book Green Eggs and Ham. He takes the unreal and applies learn strategies to it. I gave this book five stars because it gets the job done.This book introduces rhyming words and site word recognition.I would recommend this book for all students that seem to have a problem with identifying site words and rhyming sounds. The controversy of the green eggs and ham keeps it interesting which makes it fun to read.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dr. Suess for when you're Seussed-out
I purchased this and "The Cat in The Hat" CD and they are the B-E-S-T thing I've picked up in a long time.My son loves reading and being read to, esp. Dr. Seuss, and these come in handy after I've read the 10th... 12th... 14th book with him that day.He plays these at least 3x every day.The voices (all well known actors) are very well suited to the stories they read and give a great alternative style to "mom's".Plus with 2 CDs in each collection my son never gets bored.

These audio books are great. The kids love to go to sleep listening to them which saves my voice. a great buy

4-0 out of 5 stars my to-be 1st graders love this CD
The best readings on this CD are the ones by David Hyde Pierce (he played Niles on the tv show Frazier). He has a wonderful way of conveying the sillyness of the words and gives feeling to the repetition of words and tongue twisters. My sons love One Fish Two Fish (I like to box my glox)and Fox on Sox the best. They also like Green Egg's and Ham by the guy from Seinfeld (Jason Alexander I believe) and laugh everytime during the part when he goes underwater. They seem less impressed with the other reader, he's ok though.

3-0 out of 5 stars Love the cd, but I'm not thrilled with the performances.
My two-year-old son and I have a lot of fun listening to some of our favorite stories in the car, but the performances are a little lackluster.I think Jason Alexander puts the most into his performances, but David Hyde Pierce and Michael McKean are just okay.In fact, since they are the only three voices on the cd, I get a little tired of them.But overall, the cd is enjoyable. ...
