4.0 out of 5 stars Shortened from original, but good for toddlers
This is a great book to read to toddlers. Fox in Socks is a masterpiece of linguistic fun.

However, this printing is not the whole book. The storyline conflict between Knox and the Fox has been removed, as have many other small pieces, e.g. "If sir, you sir, choose to chew sir, with the goo goose, chew sir, do sir!" (I read the full version to my older...

1.0 out of 5 stars Missing key parts. Three fleas and their breezy cheese missing!
This board book makes no sense! While the original Fox in Socks follows two characters as they tackle more and more tongue twisters, this board book just eliminates about half of their dialog and a few of the harder twisters. Where's Luke Luck and his Duck that lick lakes? Where is old Joe Crow? Why only half of the poodle noodle battle? What about Bim and Bin's Big Pig...

This review is from: Fox in Socks: Dr. Seuss's Book of Tongue Tanglers (Bright & Early Board Books(TM)) (Board book)
This is a great book to read to toddlers. Fox in Socks is a masterpiece of linguistic fun.

However, this printing is not the whole book. The storyline conflict between Knox and the Fox has been removed, as have many other small pieces, e.g. "If sir, you sir, choose to chew sir, with the goo goose, chew sir, do sir!" (I read the full version to my older children a lot!)

Having said that, the pages are cardboard, so toddlers can't accidentally rip them, and there won't be any toddler concern about why Knox is mad at the Fox.

So, for toddlers, pick this up now, and get the "full" version when they're a bit older.

1.0 out of 5 stars Missing key parts. Three fleas and their breezy cheese missing!, March 18, 2013
This review is from: Fox in Socks: Dr. Seuss's Book of Tongue Tanglers (Bright & Early Board Books(TM)) (Board book)
This board book makes no sense! While the original Fox in Socks follows two characters as they tackle more and more tongue twisters, this board book just eliminates about half of their dialog and a few of the harder twisters. Where's Luke Luck and his Duck that lick lakes? Where is old Joe Crow? Why only half of the poodle noodle battle? What about Bim and Bin's Big Pig Broom Bands? Don't get this book. Pick up the beginner's library version if you are pressed for cash, but DO NOT BUY the board book.

Using this book to help with a small speech impediment. Nightly reading of small sections work. Over time the speech will improve.

I bought this when my daughter was just under a year. She didn't care for it too much at first but now the more and more we read it the more she loves it. She loves to hear the repetitive sounds of the rhyming words.

I grew up with this one and now I'm giving it to my grandson. He loves it because he can hold it without tearing the pages. Perfect.

This review is from: Fox in Socks: Dr. Seuss's Book of Tongue Tanglers (Bright & Early Board Books(TM)) (Board book)
I thought this was a regular book, it's not. It's the small cardboard book. It's still fun to read with my kids just wish I knew it was bigger

As a kid, I didn't much care for Seuss, but as an adult... I LOVE SEUSS! I always see how fast I can read this one. It's quite a challenge!

It's a good book! It's a classic storybook, great for learning beginning reading skills, and my boys enjoy hearing it over and over again.
