First published in 1963, Hop on Pop remains a perennial favorite when it comes to teaching kids to read. Here, as in most of his extensive body of work, 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 pictures and sentences used in reading primers. In contrast, the illustrations here are wild and wonderful, and the accompanying language, while simple, is delightfully silly. For example, the rhyme "THREE TREE / Three fish in a tree / Fish in a tree? / How can that be?" is brought to life with a trio of plump, self-satisfied fish perched atop globular branches as two stymied hybrid dog-rabbit-humanoids look on in consternation. 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.

“Combines phonics and word recognition, making sounds and letters recognizable. Highly recommended.”—(starred) School Library Journal.See all Product Description

Exactly like the bigger book but in a sturdy and small board book size. My baby enjoys it, but the colors get old fast!Published on June 14 2013 by aszy
This book is perfect for young children. It teaches reading and rhyming through fun and humour, and is very sturdy to withstand abuse from toddlers and preschoolers.Published on Nov. 26 2012 by Jackelope
