Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Illus. in full color. "A little bug sneezes, causing a chain of calamities. Repetition helps beginning readers and cartoon-like characters add zest."--School Library Journal.  

About the Author

Theodor Seuss Geisel - better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss - was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children's books, and his first book - And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street - was published in 1937. His greatest claim to fame was the one and only The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a hugely successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I just got done reading this book (yet again) to my children before bed. I imagine my mom probably read it to me about a hundred times, too. If you read this book, (and I highly recommend that you do) you, too, will be captivated by it. And do not miss the illustrations, there's something new every time you look!

This is one of Dr. Suess's books written under his pseudonym Rosetta Stone. This book shows once again what an amazingly clever man he was. Each of my children love this book. And I just finished reading it to my youngest son's preschool class. They enjoyed it so much they asked me to read it a second time! It is a fun and extremely enjoyable book for everyone!!!

By the time I was four years old I had this entire book memorized. My parents knew better than to skip pages, becuase I was paying attention. It is an adorable book about a little bug that sneezes and all the things that happen becuase of it. Who knew that a little sneezing bug could sink the ship "Mary Lou"?

When my two now-grown daughters were young, they received this book as a gift from a relative. It became their all time favorite children's book. My older daughter has now been reading it to her children for years and now I am getting ready to purchase a copy for my younger daughter who is expecting her first child and has specifically requested "Because a Little Bug Went Ka-choo". It is an adorable book and we never get tired of reading it. And it really does teach an important lesson that even small acts can have big consequences. I highly recommend it to all parents.

Format: Hardcover
Why this was published under a pen name, I'll never understand. In my opinion, it's one of Dr. Seuss' best books. The rhyme is easy to remember for toddlers, the images are bright and fun, the book about the little bug's sneeze and the major consequences thereafter is a brilliant encapsulation of chaos theory and the beautifully illustrates the fact that a small event can trigger larger, unforeseen events. Once we discovered this book, it became a nightly read. Highly recommended.

I'm 42 years old and don't know how I never heard of this book! My friend has a 1 yr old and I was browsing through the kids' books at Border's today and came across this one copy on display up at the very tippy top of a huge rack(not sure how a kid's supposed to see that high up but oh well!) I flipped through it and just had to have it. Unfortunately I can't find this one in board book form which is about the only binding that can survive this kiddo! But I did have to buy a copy for my personal collection and ordered one to give him later when he's old enough to not rip all the pages out. It's SO cute. I've been lucky enough to find several books that are interesting/cute enough to be read repetitively(just in case I end up babysitting down the road and 'have' to read to him!)

This book provides the same thrill as watching a Rube Goldberg machine in action--or seeing a million dominoes falling consecutively from the push of a tiny finger.

Starting with the sneeze of a little bug, a chain of events takes place that ends in a chaotic parade. The realization that each action is causing something progressively larger builds excitement for the satisfying conclusion (which shows, though doesn't state, that small actions can have big consequences).

I wonder: How many millions of kids will get to hear this exhilerating story because a loving parent with a soft voice read it to their little kid a long, long time ago?

Format: Paperback
The consequences were far reaching and wide ranging when one little bug sneezed - just what happens, it ripples out and are quite fun. The illustrations are rich and warm, soft curves and good colours with lots going on in each to maintain interest in repeated readings of it.

This has beautiful rhythm to it and is easy for children to get predictive about, learning to anticipate and the value of language, and rhythm.

As an adult I get a bit bored with it - it is quite fun but not for repeated readings, but it is high on the reading request list at home so it gets read repeatedly at the moment.
