The story If I Ran the Zoo is about a little kid named Gerald McGrew who is visiting the zoo one day. During Gerald’s visit he finds that the animals at the zoo are not interesting enough. Gerald explains that if he ran the zoo he would have crazier animals and let all of the current animals free. During the course of the book Gerald explains these silly creatures. In the book Gerald imagines that he has the best zoo of all time and he would capture the craziest creatures of all time (including ...more

I really like Dr. Seuss. I love the illustrations most of all. What I love about this book is that it has so many different Dr. Seuss stories. My favorite stories to read from the book right now are Bartholomew and The Oobleck and The Star Belly Sneetches. Every time we read the word "nerd" from The Star Belly Sneetches, Papa likes to geek out on me. He tells me that this story is where the word "nerd" originated. I don't much pay attention, but Mama thinks this is an interesting fact.

It's Dr. Seuss! What more can you say? Inspirational, appropriate and fun for any age.
Fantastic book for kids! So imaginative and creative. Easy read that children will find delightful!

Dr. Seuss is always brilliant! His stories and rhymes are fun and entertaining! Some of my all time favorites!! Such a great way to entertain children and get them interested in reading!
Yay Dr.Seuss <3

Every child needs to be brought up on Dr.Seuss stories, especially because they shadily teach some kind of moral, if you recognize it or not, while they are entertaining and delighting you.
While the others aren't necessarily my favorites, this collection does contain, in my opinion, the two best Seuss stories ever....The Sleep Book, and Too Many Daves.
Who doesn't love Dr. Seuss!?! Includes If I Ran The Zoo, Snetches, Horton Hears a Who, Sleep Book and Bartholomew and the Oobleck

May 21/09 - We just tried to read Horton Hears a Who but it was too long for wee M. I like it though!
I've had this collection of Seuss stories for a long time. It contains one of my favorites: The Sneeches.
