Product Description

From Amazon

"Did you ever fly a kite in bed? Did you ever walk with ten cats on your head?" Such are the profound, philosophical queries posed in this well-loved classic by Theodor "Dr. Seuss" Geisel. While many rhymes in this couplet collection resemble sphinx-worthy riddles, Seuss's intention is clear: teach children to read in a way that is both entertaining and educational. It matters little that each wonderful vignette has nothing to do with the one that follows. (We move seamlessly from a one-humped Wump and Mister Gump to yellow pets called the Zeds with one hair upon their heads.) Children today will be as entranced by these ridiculous rhymes as they have been since the book's original publication in 1960--so amused and enchanted, in fact, they may not even notice they are learning to read! (Ages 4 to 8)

Review

Format: Hardcover
I don't know exactly where my copy of One Fish... is right now, but I do miss it. All of Dr. Seuss' books are wonderful for young readers, but this one holds a special place in my heart because of the obsession I had with a particular page in the book when I was little. It's the one with the creature who stands on his head and says, in part, "My shoe is off, my foot is cold, I have a bird I like to hold." I used to stare at this page as if it were the most fascinating thing in the world. This, like all Dr. Seuss books, has delightful illustrations and funny text. Every child should read Dr. Seuss!

The thing I like most about this book is it survives the perpetual-reading test, that is, neither my daughter nor I am tired of reading it after two years.
"One Fish..." is really composed of several "short" sections that can be read in any order, so for a toddler, it's perfectly fine to skip around. In fact, this is conducive to a toddler's randomness - one day it's "Hop hop hop, I am a Yop"; another day it's "From there to here."

This a very funny book that had my laughing for 5 minutes after I was done reading it! It is a book about all kinds of different make believe animals that do all kinds of crazy things. These crazy animals do everything from opening cans to playing "Ring the Gack." This is a easy reading book for kinds of any age. You should read this book, you will be hapy you did!

I read this book when I was 2 and I got it out when I was 13 and I still loved it. Maybe even more. I think Dr. Seuss was a good role model and a very good poet. He has the funniest poems and stories ever. Thanx Doc. If you can read this from up above.

This book has a special place in my heart. This was the first book I read from cover to cover. It was a proud moment in my childhood. Like most Dr. Seuss books, you don't just read it, you experience it! the illustrations and the simple, yet brilliant text transport you to another world.

This book as well as others from his collection give children the chance to grow and enjoy life through books rather than with the technology of a television. One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish helps teach children how to count as well as the some of the primary colors.

If your child is a beginning reader, consider this book. Children enjoy the wonderful rhymes and made-up words. The delightful illustrations help them figure out the words. As an added bonus, adults will enjoy it, too, even if you read it many years ago.
