#10: The Sneetches Dr Seuss Book
The Sneetches and Other Stories is fantastic reading for your child. It’s not just that excellent first story in the title, but also three others that range from fun to thoughtful. The Sneetches is about creatures who separate into two groups based on appearance. With the star-bellied Sneetches looking down on the non-star-bellied Sneetches, tension builds…until in walks an entrepreneur who can instantly erase the differences with a “star-on” machine.
#9: Horton Hears A Who Dr Seuss Book
Horton is back! After his first appearance in Horton Hatches the Egg, everyone’s favorite elephant returns in this timeless, moving, and comical classic in which we discover that “a person’s a person, no matter how small.” Thanks to the incredible rhymes and eye-catching illustrations, young readers will learn kindness and perseverance (as well as the importance of a good “Yopp”) from the very determined—and very endearing—Horton the elephant.
#8: The Lorax Dr Seuss Book
This is a great book. The actual size of the book is a little larger than other Dr. Seuss books we have but we like the larger size. This is a great story with a positive message. The illustrations are colorful and fun, and help to keep kids engaged. The book is a little long so you could have a hard time keeping a younger child’s attention during the whole story, but toddlers love it! We would definitely recommend this book to all families with children at home. This book would also make a great gift for a child.
#7: The Foot Book Dr Seuss Book
The Foot Book is a delightful tribute to the diverse and multifaceted world of feet. Not merely a realm of ankles, arches, and toes, as this self-proclaimed “Wacky Book of Opposites” welcomes all kinds: “Slow feet/Quick feet/Well feet/Sick feet.” Dr. Seuss has put his best foot forward here, in a whimsical approach to showcasing opposites. Wet feet contrast dry feet, and low feet contrast high feet.
#6: Green Eggs And Ham Dr Seuss Book
Do you like green eggs and ham? Asks Sam-I-am in this Beginner Book by Dr. Seuss. In a house or with a mouse? In a boat or with a goat? On a train or in a tree? Sam keeps asking persistently.
