Book Description

Feb. 12 1963 Beginner Books(R)

Loved by generations, this “simplest Seuss for youngest use” is a Beginner Book classic. See Red and Ned and Ted and Ed in a bed. And giggle as Pat sits on a hat and on a cat and on a bat . . . but a cactus? Pat must NOT sit on that! This classic Beginner Book makes an ideal gift for Seuss fans and is an especially good way to show Pop some love on Father’s Day!

Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.

Product Description

From Amazon

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. (Ages Baby to Preschooler)

Review

“Combines phonics and word recognition, making sounds and letters recognizable. Highly recommended.”—(starred) School Library Journal.   --This text refers to the Board book edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars A real disappointment for any Suess fan Dec 14 2003
Format:Board book
This is a terrible rewrite of Hop On Pop, one of Dr. Suess' great books. They have taken some of his words, added their own, and mangled it all in an attempt to make a pop up book that sounds a bit like Hop On Pop. It doesn't work, and it doesn't seem like a lot of care was put into the rewrite.
This is neither a real Dr. Suess book, nor is it a great pop-up book. Better to look elsewhere.

I actually got this just to bring a previous order over $25. But as a new parent I will enjoy reading this, likely several times, to my son.

Exactly like the bigger book but in a sturdy and small board book size. My baby enjoys it, but the colors get old fast!

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars My baby LOVES LOVES LOVES this book Jan. 22 2008
Format:Board book
We've been reading Hop on Pop to our daughter since she was 1 month old. She's now 9 months and can't get enough. If i say Hop on Pop she gets excited and looks for the book. Her favourite character is Pat. She goes bananas for Pat. This is a great book. My friend's 2 year old can recite it from cover to cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Son Loves It! Feb. 11 2004
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
My 17 month old son calls this book "Pop" and wants to read it all of the time. It is one of the easiest Dr. Seuss books, with very few words per page. I highly recommend this book for toddlers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best beginner's book for children Feb. 10 2004
Format:Hardcover
If you want to help your children learn to think of reading as fun rather than a chore, "Hop On Pop" is the best place to start. I bought my son this book when he was two and a half and for weeks afterwards it was his favorite bedtime story. Seuss's genius in writing this enchanting book was in combining some hilarious illustrations which the kids love with easy rhyming words which encourage children to read phonetically. When a child sees the words "Ed, Ned, Red and Ted in the..." and he knows what sound "b" makes, the word "Bed" comes almost automatically. The story itself is appealing to all toddlers (what two-year-old doesn't like to hop on Pop?) and the rhymes are almost hypnotic. Read this book aloud enough times and you start chanting to yourself "Pup up, Brown down, pup is down, where is Brown, where is Brown, there is Brown, Mister Brown is out of town." (Your child will either look at you like you are nuts or join in enthusiastically.) Three months after I bought this book for my son, he was reading it out loud to me. "Hop On Pop" is a great way to get the kids started with a lifelong interest in reading.
