Recommends it for: alliteration junkies

sometimes i feel like there's a zamp in the lamp
and im also quite certain there's a jertain in the curtain

Warning: despite the title, this book has very little to say about wockets. If you purchased this book hoping to gain insight into the ecology and habitat of the wocket, you will be disappointed.
Okay so technically the six-year-old read this to me (SO PROUD) but I supervised and thus am counting it anyway.

I'm completely unfamiliar with the original There's A Wocket in My Pocket! so I don't know how this differs, sad to say, but as it's quite the silly book and so much fun to read, I wouldn't mind getting the longer version too.

It begins: "Did you ever have the feeling there's a ZAMP in the LAMP?"

"Or a NINK in the SINK?" and so on.

For each everyday household item or piece of furniture, Seuss made up a silly rhyme. There's the WOSET in the CLOSET and the BOFA on the SOFA, the GEELING on the CEILING

Well my nephew loves it, so good enough for me! Like other Dr Seuss books, wonderful to read aloud.
I liked the rhymes they were so funny!

i have read it and also read it many times to my sister -- she loves this book

Yet another fun and hilarious story from the mind of Dr. Seuss.
I think this one was my fave for awhile. The made up words were fun.
David Sarkies
I notice that some people deeply analyse the functionality of the book in how well it would work to help children to read and to understand the English language, and there are others that simply go on about how much they loved this book when they were a kid (and have probably not read it since then). Then there is me, who will read the book and then make comments about it in the same way that I made comments about Mister Dog: The Dog Who Belonged to Himself and The Three Bears. Mind you, I'm no ...more

The rhyming rhythm and silly and humorous concepts are what makes There’s a Wocket in my Pocket such a special picture book. The story depicts a young boy who visits different rooms in his house only to find crazy-looking creatures, some of which he likes and others that he doesn’t, hiding in cupboards, behind curtains, and up the chimney. The boy hopes to remain with the friendly creatures and never leave the house.

The concept I like most about the book is the creative rhyming and timing of eac
“There’s a Wocket in my Pocket!” is truly a brilliant book from the creative mind of Dr. Seuss and it is about how a young boy tells the audience about the strange yet fun-loving creatures that live in a young boy’s house. “There’s a Wocket in my Pocket!” is definitely one of the greatest books about rhyming ever written!

Dr. Seuss has done a splendid job at both writing and illustrating this book. Dr. Seuss illustrations are truly great and creative as he illustrates the boy with a red outfit an
The board book is not as good as the original.

Lovely story, exploring the emotions of one young boy toward his house guests, who I assume, were uninvited. Fun and quirky.

I read this as a child.

I am slowly added all of my childhood books to Goodreads.
As is typical for Dr. Seuss, this book combines simple rhymes with nonsense.

There is great value for young readers in reading nonsense words. It teaches them to quickly and automatically sound out words they have never seen before. And there's not much plot. This, too, is an advantage - when you're struggling to read you're likely to lose track of what you've read by the end of the sentence. If you have to think back three pages for everything to make sense, well, that's frustrating!

Some of the
My personal reaction was i loved this book because of the humor and lively illustrations. There is a silly rhymes about what the boy finds around the house that all the kids can relate too.

This would be a great read aloud to make a curricular connection about learning new words. The rhymes in the book are a great tool to helping the flow and keep the students engaged. The made up words also enhance their imagination to know they are not actually words.

This would also be a great independent read
This book is about a young boy giving us a tour around his house. In each room of his house he imagines a type of animal that we have never heard of in that room. It is a fun book because each animal in the house rhymes with an item in the room of the house he is in. For example, when he goes to the kitchen he is happy to see the “Zink in the Sink”. He talks about how he really enjoys the company of some of the animals, like the “Yot” in the “Pot”. However, he does not enjoy the company of other ...more

There’s a Wocket in my Pocket by Dr. Seuss was published in 1974. Throughout the book a boy names all kinds of creatures that live in his house and where they live. He talks about their personalities and names the ones he likes and ones he could live without. The book is aimed at beginning level readers. Rhyming is found on every page with the rhyming words in all caps.

The colors and illustrations are mostly primary, distinctive colors. Bright orange and yellow colors often represented daylight

There’s a Wocket in My Pocket! is a playful rhyme picture book written by the one and only Dr. Seuss. Have you ever gotten the feeling that there is a zamp in your lamp? How about a yottle in a bottle? Even a zillow on your pillow? As Dr. Seuss does best, these are only a few of nonsense rhymes that make this story so great! Going off of that, this story is about a young boy who talks to strange out-of-this-world kind of creatures that live inside his house. When regular objects around the house ...more

There’s a Wocket in my Pocket is another one of Dr. Seuss’s awesome and extremely creative children’s books. The book is full of weird and unique rhymes such as “I like the zable on the table” or “yeps on the steps”. Dr. Seuss makes up creative words to rhyme with every day words. The illustrations in this story are just like all of the other pictures in his books. Children really enjoy these pictures because of how creative they are and the color schemes. All of the Dr. Seuss books in my opinio ...more
Alesha Palmer
This story a funny story about a boy explaining many fanciful creatures. These creatures all sound like the objects that they are near or around. This made reading this book enjoyable and an unforgettable experience.
Color in this book is simple enough for the reader to understand and appreciate. Its many make nonfiction animals make real will make any child laugh. The setting for each page is relatively simple because Dr. Seuss want the readers to be focused on the characters rather than where
This book is uncanny in its ability to be pleasantly funny. There's a Wocket in My Pocket should prove an enjoyable read for almost anyone, as it specializes in the type of offbeat rhyming humor that shows Dr. Seuss to be quite a writer, at his best. I would definitely give one and a half stars to this book.
I know it's supposed to just be a fun read for kids to learn about rhyming. But all of these fantastical names for fantastical creatures are not the words I want my children learning when they're first developing their language skills. I'd rather they learn real rhymes - Fox in Socks at least has that going for it!
Another delightful Dr Seuss offering in which a little boy tells of the strange creatures that inhabit his house.

There are the Yeps on the steps, the Nooth Grush on his toothbrush, the Yottle in his bottle, the Jertain in the curtain and many more.

All good fun and, as usual, well illustrated.
Mohammed Al-Garawi
Unlike Dr. Seuss's other books, this doesn't send a message to the kid. It's just a short ridiculous funny rhyme that makes you smile.

I give it to him for the creativity in coming up with some of those creatures, though.

However, kids may enjoy this funny cute nonsense. I guess I'll have to wait and see..

There’s a Wocket in my pocket by Dr. Seuss
Genre: Children’s literature Reading Level: K-2 grade Format: good

This book is about a boy who just rhymes his house utilities with a monster name. The rhymes go throughout the whole book and uses colorful picture illustrations that go with the text. The boy then compares some monsters by saying some are nice and some are mean. The picture illustrations go with the theme of monsters because the monsters are colored in either dark or bright colors dependi

I read this at the nursery today as I love Dr. Seuss and the children absolutely loved it. They couldn't stop laughing at the way i read it aloud. This book is certainly better when read out loud and to/around children. It is so good.

Did you ever get the feeling there's zamp in your lamp? What about a yottle in a bottle? Even a zillow on your pillow? These are just a few of the fun rhymes Dr. Seuss has put together to form "There's a Wocket in My Pocket!" Dr. Seuss's playful rhymes and illustrations help kids of all ages enjoy what they're reading. They tricky words challenge a reader's mind to sound out whatever the word is and come up with their own meaning of that word.

What ties this book together are the silly illustrati
Brooke Brodsky
There's a Wocket in my Pocket, by Dr. Suess, is a classic and I love it, so I have given it a 5 star rating. Like all of the Dr. Seuss books, the wording is very colorful, literally and figuratively. Many of the words in the book are nonsense words, with no real meaning. However, I have always felt that the made up words fit in perfectly with the story, and even though they may not be found in a dictionary, when read in context, the made up language is real and descriptive. In the book, the narr ...more

1. This was such a cute book! While I read many of Dr. Seuss' books when I was a child, I never read this one. He used a lot of rhyming words by making up his own words. This would intrigue kids and bring enjoyment into reading.
2. This would be a great read aloud to just enrich a younger classroom (Kindergarten). It was definitely a beginner's book and wouldn't have much emphasis on language and vocabulary because most of the vocabulary Dr. Seuss used was made up. But it would be great for a stu
