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.

You will find the classics that you know and be introduced to some great stories that you may not have seen before. The stories also span the author's career and it is interesting to see the evolution of art and stories both in response to socio-political developments and as the author develops his craft, perfects it, and then continues to write as he gets older.
This book is a bit heavy for holding up while lying in bed, but we always take it when travelling since the single volume really saves on space in comparison to taking the equivalent in individual books.
Highly recommend for any family.
