Product Description

About the Author

THEODOR SEUSS GEISEL—aka Dr. Seuss—is one of the most beloved children’s book authors of all time. From The Cat in the Hat to Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, his iconic characters, stories, and art style have been a lasting influence on generations of children and adults. The books he wrote and illustrated under the name Dr. Seuss (and others that he wrote but did not illustrate, including some under the pseudonyms Theo. LeSieg and Rosetta Stone) have been translated into thirty languages. Hundreds of millions of copies have found their way into homes and hearts around the world. Dr. Seuss’s long list of awards includes Caldecott Honors for McElligot’s Pool, If I Ran the Zoo, and Bartholomew and the Oobleck, the Pulitzer Prize, and eight honorary doctorates. Works based on his original stories have won three Oscars, three Emmys, three Grammys, and a Peabody.

By Jackson Spines TOP 500 REVIEWER on Sept. 6 2012
Format: Hardcover
This book offers 6 different stories. If you were going to buy these 6 stories in individual books it would cost a lot more than the cost of this compilation which makes this book such a great bargain. Also, some of these stories are really hard to find individually now. I found my copy of this at my local Walmart for a little cheaper than it's listed here for. Very cheap price for this many stories all in one convenient book. Great for kids and adults alike!

Great shape .... only a little writing (a name) on the cover and first page. It came off the cover and the first page was blank so I just took it out.

Compared to the Big Blue Book April 10 2010
By Noname - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have "The Big Green Book of Beginner Books" and The BIG Blue Book of Beginner Books. The stories in both books are easy for beginning readers; but the stories in the blue book have full plots and are more interesting. The green book stories are sillier and nonsensical. Dr. Seuss has written much better stories than these.

My daughter says she likes both books equally well. She especially enjoys searching for all the silly objects in "Wacky Wednesday." I will give her opinion more weight in the star rating. After all, it is a children's book and it does what I want, which is motivate her to read. I personally would have given it 3 stars.

If you are trying to decide between the blue book or the green book, I'd recommend the blue book.

The Big Breen Book of Beginner Books is a hit! July 20 2014
By Padap1113 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the 2nd Beginner Book with multiple stories that I have bought for my grand daughter. We like the Dr Suess books and they are good reading for a child just beginning to read, It is nice because all the books are together and She can just choose which she wants to read, All children when they are learning to read need books that are the correct level and these are great to read to a child that isn't quite ready to read and then they can just move into reading them themselves. I love the book, my daughter loves the book, my grand daughter loves the book AND my grandson also loved to have the book read to him. My grand daughter even reads to her little brother at times. Nice bonding time for them!

can't go wrong May 21 2014
By Anna Maria Picone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have a 6 yr old son, in first grade. He is shy, but he becomes more shy because he has issues with reading. He came to me one day, after he went to the school library, and he picked out this book and started reading it. It came so easy for him and felt very comfortable reading it. He then wanted me to buy it so he could begin reading some stories to his class. I have never seen him so excited about reading, especially in front of his classmates. The book contains about 6 or 7 stories of which each story is about 10 -12 pages. This was by far the best money I spent on a book for my son.

A fabulous read for young children Dec 3 2009
By Kat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I saw this book in a store and bought it with my 5 year old grandson in mind. He loves the fact that it is a thick book, just like grandma's. He even put in a bookmark like mine to hold his place after he reads the stories. It is easy to read and unlike some of the Dr. Seuss books, makes a lot of sense in the story lines. He loves this book and can't wait to come to my house and read with his grandma. I just ordered the Big Blue book for him for Christmas. I highly recommend this book.
