More Dr Seuss: Oh, the Places You'll Go!

Note: This is a condensed, board book version of the classic bestseller, perfect for babies and toddlers.

First published in 1963, Hop on Pop remains a perennial favorite when it comes to teaching kids to read. Here, as always, Dr. Seuss creates uncomplicated, monosyllabic rhymes to foster learning and inspire children to read. But what was radical about this little book at the time of publication (and what makes it still compelling today) is Seuss's departure from the traditionally dull sentences used in reading primers. In contrast, the language, while simple, is delightfully silly:
    Three fish in a tree
    Fish in a tree?
    How can that be?
Hop on Pop does much more than teach children the basics of word construction, it also introduces them to the incomparable pleasure of reading a book.

Dr. Seuss ignites a child's imagination with his mischievous characters and zany verses.
- The Express

Combines phonics and word recognition, making sounds and letters recognizable. Highly recommended.
