About the Author

Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904. After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising. His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!, appeared in several leading American magazines. Dr. Seuss's first children's book, And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever! In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best- selling series, Beginner Books. This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills. Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped kids learn to read.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and three Academy Awards, Seuss was the author and illustrator of 44 children's books, some of which have been made into audiocassettes, animated television specials, and videos for children of all ages. Even after his death in 1991, Dr. Seuss continues to be the best-selling author of children's books in the world.

From AudioFile

Dr. Seuss would delight in this presentation of his work. For those of us steeped in the illustrations of Dr. Seuss's work, it's surprising that the spoken words stand so well on their own. They do, very well, and offer a whole new dimension for appreciating a fine collection of Seuss favorites. Each narrator in the ensemble, Jason Alexander, David Hyde Pierce, and Michael McKean, conveys sparkle and dimension. Pause and pace are used deftly. Tone and inflection are spirited and full of the lightness that one imagines Seuss himself would use when giving voice to his characters. Playful musical interludes and sound effects add just the right emphasis and zaniness. An outstanding total package. A.R.

More About the Author

"A person's a person, no matter how small," Theodor Seuss Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, would say. "Children want the same things we want. To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained and delighted."

Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped millions of kids learn to read.

Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts, on March 2, 1904. After graduating from Dartmouth College in 1925, he went to Oxford University, intending to acquire a doctorate in literature. At Oxford, Geisel met Helen Palmer, whom he wed in 1927. Upon his return to America later that year, Geisel published cartoons and humorous articles for Judge, the leading humor magazine in America at that time. His cartoons also appeared in major magazines such as Life, Vanity Fair, and Liberty. Geisel gained national exposure when he won an advertising contract for an insecticide called Flit. He coined the phrase, "Quick, Henry, the Flit!" which became a popular expression.

Geisel published his first children's book, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, in 1937, after 27 publishers rejected it.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984, an Academy Award, three Emmy Awards, three Grammy Awards, and three Caldecott Honors, Geisel wrote and illustrated 44 books. While Theodor Geisel died on September 24, 1991, Dr. Seuss lives on, inspiring generations of children of all ages to explore the joys of reading.

Format: Audio CD
My son (4 1/2 yrs) asks to listen to this every time we get in the car. The narration is wonderful, with a soothing rhythmic quality. Our favorite is the Jason Alexander's rousing version of Green Eggs & Ham, and his reading of the ABC's (there's a sneeze at the letter "K" which threw my 22 month old into hysterics. I've never seen a baby laugh so hard. To this day it makes him to laugh every time). David Hyde Pierce is great at the tongue twisters, which is why I guess most of those stories are read by him. The Michael McKeaon ones are a little weak, however we don't currently have the books that he reads, so it just may be that we're not familiar with those stories. These stories seem to make whatever ride we're going on that much shorter. There's also been many times when we've arrived at our destination & my oldest son will ask to stay in the car until the story is over.

And as for the other reviewer saying this CD is as boring as an insurance seminar.....I currently am going to school for my insurance license & I can assure you the CD is most certainly not boring. The insurance classes on the other hand......

If you've wearied of Green Eggs and Ham and Sam-I-Am, and would rather not Hop on Pop, you'll be grateful for this CD set with lively readings of the kid-favorites by familiar voices like Jason Alexander, David Hyde Pierce, and Michael McKean. For young readers, pair them up with the books to follow along and VOILA! Instant Readers! this year is Dr. Seuss's 100th birthday!

This is a terrific audio CD of our Dr. Seuss favorites. My sons love to read along in the car and at home. The celebrity readings are great to listen to. Even my husband and I listen in the car, long after the kids have dozed off. Don't miss out on this collection. Well worth it!

My two-year-old son and I have a lot of fun listening to some of our favorite stories in the car, but the performances are a little lackluster. I think Jason Alexander puts the most into his performances, but David Hyde Pierce and Michael McKean are just okay. In fact, since they are the only three voices on the cd, I get a little tired of them. But overall, the cd is enjoyable.

I had high hopes for this based on Dr. Seuss The Cat in the Hat and Other Favorites. That set is absolutely wonderful with amazing voice talent. These readers, however, aren't as good, but that makes sense since the actors used (David Hyde Pierce, Jason Alexander, Michael McKean) while entertaining on tv, don't compare talent-wise to Dustin Hoffman, Walter Matthau, John Lithgow, Billy Crystal, etc.

My advice is to pass on this set and get the other. If you already have it and your kids want more Seuss, be prepared that this set isn't as good.

I purchased this and "The Cat in The Hat" CD and they are the B-E-S-T thing I've picked up in a long time. My son loves reading and being read to, esp. Dr. Seuss, and these come in handy after I've read the 10th... 12th... 14th book with him that day. He plays these at least 3x every day. The voices (all well known actors) are very well suited to the stories they read and give a great alternative style to "mom's". Plus with 2 CDs in each collection my son never gets bored.

I have always liked Dr. Seuss even as a little girl but, unfortunately my parents NEVER bought us any books, except for the set of books my grandmother gave me. I bought this for Early Childhood Education courses that I was taking in college. Since then I change my major.
