    5-0 out of 5 stars My daughter and I never got tired of reading this book
    When she was young, this was one of my favorite books that I read to my daughter. I never got tired of telling her how great she would be when she got older. She also loved hearing it, the rhythm of the words never failed to keep her attention. I read her the entire collection of Dr. Seuss books in the local public library, and this was without question one of her three favorites. As I watch her go through life, I can't help but believe that some of the optimism for success that she possesses is a residual of hearing the words in this book.

    Editorial Review

    "Did you ever fly a kite in bed? Did you ever walk with ten cats on your head?" Such are the profound, philosophical queries posed in this well-loved classic by Theodor "Dr. Seuss" Geisel. While many rhymes in this couplet collection resemble sphinx-worthy riddles, Seuss's intention is clear: teach children to read in a way that is both entertaining and educational. It matters little that each wonderful vignette has nothing to do with the one that follows. (We move seamlessly from a one-humped Wump and Mister Gump to yellow pets called the Zeds with one hair upon their heads.) Children today will be as entranced by these ridiculous rhymes as they have been since the book's original publication in 1960--so amused and enchanted, in fact, they may not even notice they are learning to read!

    4-0 out of 5 stars A review of the Vinyl Bath Book edition only!
    Since my 7-month-old still thinks books are for putting in your mouth, I've been buying him bath books. I bought this one sight unseen from Amazon, and as much as I love the classic "One Fish, Two Fish," I was a little disappointed. First, the book is small, even for a bath book (about 4x6 inches -- the "8.3 x 4.8" dimensions in the Amazon description are just plain WRONG). Second, the book was shorter than I expected. It consists only of the first 8 pages of the original "One Fish." Of course, the baby doesn't know how abridged the book is, so he enjoys it. And the colors are bright, the printing is sharp, and the overall package is high-quality and holds up to lots of handling. But there's not much there to read to him.

    This timeless Dr. Seuss classic was first published in 1960, and has been delighting readers ever since. Sam-I-am is as persistent as a telemarketer, changing as many variables as possible in the hopes of convincing the nameless skeptic that green eggs and ham are a delicacy to be savored. He tries every manner of presentation with this "nouveau cuisine"--in a house, with a mouse, in a box, with a fox, with a goat, on a boat--to no avail. Then finally, Read more

    The book of green eggs and ham teaches us all a valued lesson on never judgeing a book by it's cover. Even though the main character tries to convince himself of not trying green eggs and ham, when he finally does he actually really likes it. This being a perfect example of not being prejudice.

    I thought this book was great - it was really colorful. The overall feel reminded me of the book "Now I Know the Ten Commandments". I recommend it to anyone.

    Editorial Review

    When Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert of Green Gables, Prince Edward Island, send for a boy orphan to help them out at the farm, they are in no way prepared for the error that will change their lives. The mistake takes the shape of Anne Shirley, a redheaded 11-year-old girl who can talk anyone under the table. Fortunately, her sunny nature and quirky imagination quickly win over her reluctant foster parents. Anne's feisty spirit soon draws many friends--and much trouble--her way. Not a day goes by without some melodramatic new episode in the tragicomedy of her life. Early on, Anne declares her eternal antipathy for Gilbert Blythe, a classmate who commits the ultimate sin of mocking her hair color. Later, she accidentally dyes that same cursed hair green. Another time, in her haste to impress a new neighbor, she bakes a cake with liniment instead of vanilla.Lucy Maud Montgomery's series of books about Anne have remained classics since the early 20th century. Her portrayal of this feminine yet independent spirit has given generations of girls a strong female role model, while offering a taste of another, milder time in history. This lovely boxed gift collection comprises Read more

    Editorial Review

    "This Fox is a tricky fox. He'll try to get your tongue in trouble." Dr. Seuss gives fair warning to anyone brave enough to read along with the Fox in Socks, who likes to play tongue-twisting games with his friend Mr. Knox. "Here's an easy game to play. Here's an easy thing to say.... New socks. Two socks. Whose socks? Sue's socks." But Mr. Fox Socks isn't about to let Knox off so easy. Soon Goo-Goose is choosing to chew chewy gluey blue goo, while tweetle beetles battle with paddles in a puddle (in case you were wondering, that's called a "tweetle beetle puddle paddle battle"). Mr. Knox gets exasperated: "I can't blab such blibber blubber! My tongue isn't made of rubber." But he catches on to the game before it's all through. One of Seuss's best, this must-read-aloud classic is guaranteed to get many giggles out of readers young and old. (Ages 4 to 8) Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars it grew on me
    When we first bought this book for my then two-year old daughter, I could barely get through it the first time.I didn't much like it.That's probably because I was so busy trying to say the words it, I couldn't pay attention to what was actually happening.Since then, the book has grown on me, and my now three-year old daughter loves it, as well.After reading the book aloud a gazillion times, I can now say it almost without getting my tongue twisted, and my favorite part is the ending, where Knox finally gets his "revenge" for what Fox has put him through.

    Editorial Review

    Although this book was around when many of today's parents wereyoungsters, it has remained a steadfast must-have in every toddler's library. For starters, it's a great vocabulary guide that names the many things that go (and some that haven't a prayer of going, but are great fun to imagine anyway). It's also teeming with detail-rich scenes and characters on every page, teaching children the rewards of looking long and closely (such as finding the hidden "Goldbug" in each spread). Along the way it entertains with the silly and slapstick--everything from toothpaste and toothbrush cars to six fire department vehicles that show up to extinguish a ladybug-size fire in a miniature pink convertible. What's most amazing about this book, however, is its longevity. When you purchase it for your fledgling talker, you should consider it an investment. Even 11-, 12-, and 13-year-olds are known to pore over the book nostalgically, cooing at Lowly Worm and eagerly tracking Officer Flossie's book-long chase after that irresponsible, speedster driver in a cowboy hat.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Scarry Classic
    I first read this book to my daughter 22 years ago. It was her favorite, and alas it wore out. Searching to find Goldbug on each and every page was the most fun, and the verse was very entertaining as we did so. It helped teach her words, spelling and all about the different ways to get from here to there. I just reordered a copy to surprise her for Christmas, as she prepares to start her own family. I highly recommend this book by one of the most beloved children's authors.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Simply outstanding
    I grew up with Richard Scarry books, including the now out-of-print "Busy Busy World."For some reason I had forgotten what a gem this is.Any child will delight in it, and for parents it is so nice to have a book that can be different every time you read it, as most of our books are read over, and over, and over.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Dr. Seuss is great...
    The other review complaining about how it is shortened is just silly. Yes, the original is longer and my toddler finds it more entertaining- but when we first got this board book, ds wanted to read it several times a day. He still likes it read to him. It is perfect to start babies off on Dr. Seuss.

    This book, and other Dr. Seuss books, are classic early children's reads.I read this book to my children starting when they were toddlers, using the board book edition.The rhythm, the rhyme, make it so fun to read aloud.I was definitely inspired by Dr. Seuss when I sat down to write my first rhyming picture book, which is now published!If Dr. Seuss was alive today I would have to say, thank you Dr. Seuss for helping me learn to read, my children, and for inspiring me as a writer.This book is great for teaching the alphabet and for teaching sounds that begin with each letter of the alphabet.And Dr. Seuss's art is always fun!A.

    Yes, this is an abridged version. But it's not mutilated. The abridgement was done very sensitively, and if you didn't know better, you'd think it was just as Dr Seuss wrote it. It really captures his joyful "voice" and his distinctive lilting rhymes.

    Encyclopedia Brown was my childhood hero. I liked him so much I named my cat Sally Kimball. Not one to stand out in a crowd, Cyc (on the covers of the old scholastic paperbooks) looked like a carbon copy of my 2nd grade self. Of course, I was sitting inside reading about his adventures during recess, not solving crimes, with wits perhaps not quite so sharp. And my suburb did not have quite as many opportunities for me to distinguish myself with crime-solving ability. Still, Cyc taught me lessons that I saw myself one day applying, once I escaped Red China.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Are You a good detective?
    This story is about a boy who starts a detective business and his name is Leroy Brown, but all his friends call him Encyclopedia.His father is the cheif of police and no one in the city of Idaville(where he lives)had gotten away with any crime in over one year!Whenever his father gets a hard case, he tells it to Leroy and it's solved very fast, but it's their little secret.The answers to all the cases are in the back of the book, but sometimes it's fun to solve them yourself.Some cases are easier than others and some are harder than others but they all make this a good book!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Still a favorite after 20 years...
    I read all the books I could find in this series as a young girl.To this day, I still remember some of the answers and clues (a door swings out towards its hinges).I am so glad to have found these books and hope to share them with my son and nephews when the time is right.I'll probably read them all over again...that is how much I enjoyed them growing up.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Heed the Warning!
    The Lorax is another book by Seuss with a powerful message within its pages. Its message is more overt and obvious to the reader than other Seuss books. Simply stated, we must take care of the natural resources around us or they could be forever lost. The main character in the story is filled with greed at the prospect making and selling more Thneeds. He continually ignores the Lorax's warnings. For a while, he and his family are very successful and prosperous, but in time the prophetic warnings come to pass. The trees are all gone, the air is black with smog, and the water is thick with sludge. For me, the Lorax represents those in our society who put themselves on the front lines to protect our environment. Many ridicule them and call them "Tree Huggers!" But, we should think twice before we dismiss their warnings. We have already seen many of the parallels between this book and reality occur.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The favorite of a father and a daughter.
    As I approached my 100th review, I wondered if I should make it special? Tonight I decided what it should be after reading it to my daughter.
    5-0 out of 5 stars How much do I love this book?!
    I love, love, LOVE The Lorax! This book should be required reading in schools, especially in light of the current trend towards corporate responsibility. Every time I hear someone defend a toxic product, I think, "But a Thneed is a thing that everyone, everyone, EVERYONE needs!" ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Baby's Favorite Book
    This is a wonderful collection of Dr. Seuss stories. My kid loves to read and re-read the classics such as 'The Grinch' and the more offbeat stories like 'Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book'. The essays are also fun to read while looking at the original artwork.
    4-0 out of 5 stars nice collection
    This book is marketed for children, but it's better suited to adults who want a collection of stories without buying all the individual books, and who like the accompanying essays (they are fun!). It's less suited for children due to its unwieldly size, including the difficulty of opening the book flat. It would work fairly well for reading to one or two children sitting next to the reader, but for reading to a group, where showing the pages is vital, this volume is too awkward to handle. I'm a little disappointed that it doesn't include Fox in Sox and The Cat in the Hat Comes Back.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Ok for review..
    It is great to have all these stories in one place. I almost forgot how fun they were to read, but it was something I wanted to have for Grandmothering...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely the Best Storybook Ever
    I loved Richard Scarry when I was young. When I was 4 I got My first book the Bunny Book. I loved it, it was so cute. I got the best storybook for my son when he was 2. He's now 3 1/2 and i'm not kidding i've read this book to him every single day since! He loves it. He calls it the bunny book. Because he too loves that cute story. Sometimes i'll find him in his room just studying the pictures he can be there for a very long. This is a must for every childs library.I also recommend the Richard Scarry's Best Learning videos from Rrandom House.My son loves those as well.

    5-0 out of 5 stars My favorite book as a child
    I am 28 years old and still remember how much I LOVED this book as a child.I read it until it fell apart, and my parents constantly tried to hide it on top of the refrigerator because they were tired of reading it to me over and over.Buy this book for your kids!I'm now an English teacher and, of course, an avid reader.When my students ask me what is my favorite book, I name this one, because it was my first loved book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book!
    Richard Scarry's books are so simple to read, and the illustrations are classic.I remember reading his books when I was growing up, and I just loved them.This book includes many wonderful stories that aren't lenghthy so they won't lose your child's interest.I definitely want my daughter to experience them. ...

    Editorial Review

    Oh, the wonderful things Mr. Brown can do! In this "Book of Wonderful Noises," Mr. Brown struts his stuff, as he imitates everything from popping corks to horse feet ("pop pop pop pop" and "klopp klopp klopp," respectively) while inviting everyone to join him in the fun. Young readers who are still learning their sounds and letters will get a wacky workout as they follow along with the very serious-looking, squinty-eyed Mr. Brown. Whether it's eggs frying in a pan or a hippo chewing gum, the skillful Mr. Brown just keeps topping himself, with a "sizzle sizzle" or a "grum grum grum." "Mr. Brown is so smart he can even do this: he can even make a noise like a goldfish kiss!... pip!" As usual, the words and pictures of Dr.Seuss make reading (and making all sorts of funny noises) impossible to resist. Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? will stay fresh through many a giggling reading. --Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A favorite in our house!
    My son got this book from grandma when he was a little over a year old.It was an automatic favorite!It starts with "Oh the wonderful sounds Mr. Brown can do.He can sound like a cow.He can go moo moo."It has pictures that are engaging for their simplicity and a rhyme that is flowing but varied so it doen't get boring.My son loved learning the noises and now he says them along with me when I read.I've even caught him looking at this book and saying the noises to himself.He's now 2 and we still read this one often (and I have it memorized).I highly recommend this book.I just don't know how you couldn't like it!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You
    This was for my daughter who is 11 months old. I liked it because it is a board book and she cant rip the pages.

    5-0 out of 5 stars What a fun book!
    My son loves this book -- and so do we!My husband and I have really enjoyed reading this book, which is great because we read it everyday.The boardbook design is perfect for young children because the pages can't be easily ripped up or torn, and if a little drool gets on a page or two, it can be wiped off with a damp rag.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful
    I found this book for my little girl, after discovering a Dinosaur and Shark book for my son. It is so beautiful I sat in awe for about 30 minutes looking at it when I first received it. It's not Disney's Cinderella, so don't look for any comparisons. Instead, it is a beautiful story full of imaginative pop-ups that allow little girls to pretend they are in the story as Cinderella herself. My little girl (2 years) just loves to sit with me and my husband and flip through the story. Even my 3 year old boy loves to look at it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Cinderella:A Pop-Up Fairy Tale
    A fabulous & fun pop up book with extra surprises on each page, in each corner.Bought as a gift for my niece (age 6) and she absolutely loved it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars More than a pop-up
    This is an exquisitely done work of art, with pop-ups that rival origami.I purchased it for my four year old granddaughter' birthday, but found that even at that age, supervision when reading (and care turning pages) is advisable.It is a book to be kept for years and handed down for generations.A great find and well worth the investment. ...

    The 23 original tales by Beatrix Potter comes in a sturdy presentation box. All 23 tales are of the original art work and are beautifully made.

They are perfect for adults and their little ones.

    5-0 out of 5 stars oh the thinks you can think
    I love it because you get to finish fast and their like riming words.I love riming words they always make me interested in the book.they say right and then they change the wordto light.Those are changing words.I love when they put the words they are supossed to put and then they change them.It was a different Dr.Suess book it was "The Thinks You Can Think" it was really incredible.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very cute book to get your little one to think!
    What a cute book!This book greatly inspires little ones to use their imaginations and think up all sorts of things.This book also reminds me of a story in Seuss' book, "I can Lick 30 Tigers Today," in which the Cat-in-the-Hat's daughter uses her imagination to think up a Glunk.That's a pretty funny story too.Anyway, in this tale, there really isn't a storyline at all.Just page after page of silly drawings of things that don't exist mostly (like how much water can 55 purple elephants drink?).My little one recognizes Seuss' drawings and always tells me that's 55 Hortons drinking water!Or, how about "schlopp.Schlopp, schlopp, beautiful schlopp.Beautiful schlopp with a cherry on top."And what on earth is a jibboo anyway?A bird's head on a human body, walking down a dark street?This book is filled with very silly things such as this, none of which make sense, but all of which cause little ones to use their imaginations.It's a great time reading this one aloud and ours gets read nightly.
    5-0 out of 5 stars But can you think as many thinks as Dr. Seuss thinks?
    "Life" magazine published a report in May of 1954 about illiteracy among American school children.One of the key things in this article was that children were not inspired to read because their books were boring, which is to say the world of Dick, Jane and Spot.So it came to pass that Theodore Geisel's publisher sent him and a list of 400 words that had to be cut to 250 (because that was how many words it was believed a first grader could understand before their heads exploded or something), and then write a book.At this point in the history of the world Geisel was best known as the creator of Gerald McBoing-Boing, an animated character for which he won an Oscar.The book, of course, was "The Cat in the Hat," which used 220 of those words, and for the rest of his life Dr. Seuss wrote books that were part of the Beginner Books and Bright and Early Books series, which proudly allowed young kids to proclaim "I Can Read It All By Myself."Consequently, Dr. Seuss was one of the major forces in American literacy in the last half of the 20th century.Read more

    Editorial Review

    Surely among the most lovable of all Dr. Seuss creations, Horton the Elephant represents kindness, trustworthiness, and perseverance--all wrapped up, thank goodness, in a comical and even absurd package. Horton hears a cry for help from a speck of dust, and spends much of the book trying to protect the infinitesimal creatures who live on it from the derision and trickery of other animals, who think their elephant friend has gone quite nutty. But worse is in store: an eagle carries away the clover in which Horton has placed the life-bearing speck, and "let that small clover drop somewhere inside / of a great patch of clovers a hundred miles wide!" Horton wins in the end, after persuading the "Who's" to make as much noise as possible and prove their existence. This classic is not only fun, but a great way to introduce thoughtful children to essentially philosophical questions.How, after all, are we so sure there aren't invisible civilizations floating by on every mote?

    It hardly has to be said about Nintendo Power.They do produce some rather fantastic guides.It's no surprise that with the release of the next Pokemon games, they'd have a guide ready to go.It's a fantastic guide, that spends quite a bit of time trying to get people used to the new style of gameplay Pokemon has gone.
