Dr. Seuss Book Recommendations
Most of the little boys I have known incorporate sound effects into their play. When my brother was little he could recreate the sound of a car in need of a tune-up perfectly!
Maybe this is part of the reason why my son LOVES Mr. Brown Can Moo! This book is full of fun sounds! It’s a great introduction to Dr. Seuss for the very young and it’s also available as a board book. In my experience this is not a minor detail when you are buying books for toddlers!
Dr. Seuss books are especially fun to read out loud. I always pause to have my kids fill in the rhyming words! A family favorite is How the Grinch Stole Christmas which my kids request year round. Another wonderful thing about Dr. Seuss is that many are easy readers so reading-to-them can transition into them reading-to-you! Hop on Pop is a great one full of zany rhyming 3 letter words.
Recently Pragmatic Mom recommended The Lorax which is one of her son’s favorites which happens to be one that we haven’t EVEN read. I am planning to to rectify this situation in a big way! We are going to have a join birthday celebration for me and Dr. Seuss tomorrow. The festivities will include going to see the new Lorax movie followed by a trip to the bookstore. Yay! And I think I’ll skip the Green Eggs and Ham!!!
