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.

When was about 9 this book had already become, easy. However, Doctor Seuss' rhymes, and elegant word smithing skills, bring back the child in all of us. There is nothing quite look hearing it read to you by a familiar soothing voice. Even reading it out loud brings a sort of childish joy back into your soul.

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.
