To get his books I'd crawl through bogs; I would read them to my dogs. Of Dr. Seuss, I'm such a fan; I would read them on the can. I would read them on my bike, or read them as I take a hike. I'd read them if it rains or snows, I'd read them while I blow my nose. I'd sneak to read them while at work; I'd even share them with a jerk. I would read them in a tree - no better books will ever be. I loved these books as child or Gram; I love these books, big fan I am.
There are five separate hardcovers books in this collection, and they come protected in a fitted cardboard sleeve. Each book is one complete story, with funny characters, unusual adventuresome plots, and all have happy endings. The stories are all illustrated and the font is large and easy to read, the tongue twisters are catchy and fun and the plot of the stories move at a smooth and easy pace.
These stories and pictures capture a toddler’s attention, and they listen without any restless squirming. When my son was at that very young age he always requested that I read the same story ‘again’.
He kept his full collection and now that he has two young children of his own, both he and my daughter-in-law read them to their children as part of their bedtime ritual. Since all these stories are fun and amusing, and without any scary portions, they make the perfect transition from sleepy wakefulness to a peaceful sleep.
However, I bought this starter set for my niece who has one-year old twins. My niece and her husband live in a small apartment with very limited space and with all the toys received from both families, and all the relatives and friends they have run out of room. Therefore if everyone would just send the children a birthday card and come for a visit that would suffice for their birthday. Unfortunately, I live over 3,000 miles away and therefore a ‘drop-over’ for a visit is not possible for me. Therefore, I felt compelled to send something more than just birthday cards, and sent this set of books as well.
Both her and her husband loved this gift. Books take up a minimum of space, and since she is an avid reader she has ‘story-time’ with her children twice a day, afternoons and at bedtime, and furthermore she enjoyed the Dr. Seuss books from when she was toddler and never grew tired of his stories, even as she grew older.
This is an ideal and universal gift for all children. No matter our age, these books are entertaining, and interesting for adults to read out loud with humorous tongue twisters, and sure to delight all girls and boys. This is a sensational start to introduce the joy of reading, and a perfect start for any child’s book collection.

My niece loved them all, especially the wonderful Fox in Socks. As soon as she opened the present she had to be read each book and she wanted Fox in Socks read to her 3 times in a row she loved it so much!
I just know that these books will give her (and her parents) many hours of fun. And because the books range from simple words (Hop on Pop) through to quit complex sentences (Fox in Socks), they will help her when she starts to read too.
Hop on Pop is a great alternative to BOB books for reluctant readers. My almost 5yrs old does not like to read other books aside from her school text books but, she likes Hop on Pop as compared to the BOB books I previously bought for her.
My 2yrs old finds the pictures funny!
Supplier was great as I had requested to deliver by a certain date - for my daughter's birthday. They didn't respond/promise anything but the delivery was made on the requested date. Very happy with the service.
