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.

Recently I bought this as a gift realising that if I bought these five in bulk it would save about 45% over buying all these books individually. I was going to give two books to one person, and three to another, but I may well end up buying another set so both can have a complete set.

Before I parted with them I decided to take themn out and read them. What amazes me is how great they are for a child starting to read.

You may not know that 'Happy Birthday' according to the Guinness Book of Records is the most sung song in the world. You may wonder why. Well, for one thing Happy Birthday contains 16 words, of which only two are not repeated many times. In fact there are only six unique words. Part of the ease of understanding comes with repetition.

Green Eggs and Ham has about 60 unique words and 500 to 600 words overall, very cleverly done, and outstanding for a child learning to read, with entertaining color illustrations on each page, great rhyme, repetition and variation and parallel structure, even reversal.

Here is an example with parallel structure and rhyme:

So I will eat them in a box
And " " " " with a fox.
" " " " " in a house.
" " " " " with a mouse.
" " " " " here and there.
" " " " " anywhere.
Say! I will eat them ANYWHERE.

Now see if you can sing these words to the tune of Happy Birthday. I think you will find the meter is similar. I think it's quite ingenious. And I think Green Eggs and Ham will encourage a child to try new things.

And a reversal pattern:

I am Sam. Sam I am.

Hop on Pop is a great first book for a child to make rhyme associations through, very entertaining and for a beginner.

Fox in Socks is full of tongue twisters.

I bought this collection on the hunch that Dr. Seuss's books collection would be at the very least of passing interest. Finding good kids books these days is quite challenging especially when the marketing machine hammers at you incessantly as if coaxing you to make a specific choice.

Hence, it was a pleasant surprise to see my 5 yr old get enamoured by the packaging and then by the book collection itself. Based on my wife's feedback, she has kept up her readings and in the process, picked up new words, pronunciations as well as enjoyed the story lines.

I would highly recommend this product.

I love Dr. Seuss and this set of books is an amazing teaching tool. The five books are all at slightly different levels of reading and aim at practicing different reading skills; they go from basic phoneme pronunciation (Hop on Pop) to real tongue twisters (Fox in socks). The humor is wonderful (and can be understood by both adults and children) and the illustrations are equally great! A must have for anyone teaching English at an elementary level, and a great addition to any child's personal library. You won't regret it!

I loved Dr. Seuss as a child so this collection seemed like a logical purchase for my newborn son. My boy is only 3 months old but already he loves the rhymes and colourful illustrations. This is te perfect start to any child's reading collection. I know my son will cherish these books as much as I did.

My toddler loves the Dr.Seuss collection! He likes to turn the pages and these are not board books so must be very careful how he handles them. They're great for night time reading when he is t as interested in holding the book:) great PRICE TOO!
