    " I don't know how many people really appreciate how much of a genius Dr. Seuss was. Yes, he wrote books for children and I love them when I was 6 and 7. But when I pick one now and read it... WOW! He had some really deep ideas within his quirky rhymes! Dr. Seuss is a MUST for all people of all ages. If you can't appreciate his works, there is something really wrong with you. I can think of no other author who can cater to as wide an audience as Dr. Seuss. "

    " The Cat in the Hat returns - with Young Cat! A nice book about the joys of reading. What exactly should we do about owls on noses? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelby Parkinson | 2/18/2014

    " The illustrations in this book are very creative and would be fun for children who like bright colors and fun shapes. I do not think it is a very informative book because most of the stuff that is mentioned in it has nothing to do with reality. But sometimes that is what children need. They need to get away from reality and just have fun. I really loved the story and the creativity made it fun and captivating. I would recommend it to all children. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaethe | 5/30/2012

    " Kind of a counter-intuitive take on early readers: reading skillz as bragging rights. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily Augustus --Louisville KY | 4/5/2012

    " This was one of the first books I read so many times when I was little I could recite the story without even opening the book.
    It holds a special place for me, because I would sit and read it to my youngest sister before bed. She even memorized some of the book before she could really read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kirei | 2/22/2011

About the Author
Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904.  After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising.  His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!,  appeared in several leading American magazines.  Dr. Seuss's first children's book, And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever!  In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best-selling series, Beginner Books.  This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills.  Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents.  In the process, he helped kids learn to read.
