I am so sad that people are turned away from this book because of the dated depiction of guns... it is such a fabulous book that I remember from my childhood as one of my favorites, and I think you'll be relieved to know that I don't remember a single gun in the book. I'm sure you wouldn't want to force the concepts of arms into your child's mind, but it ISN'T related to the story, and it absolutely did not stick for me. I remember a fantastic little horse who had a bad case of allergies, and I loved him. There's no violence in the book, so maybe it's a breath of fresh air nowadays. Please consider this book for your kids! It is timeless, and I know I will share it with mine someday.

This book is my absolute favorite children's book. I have my original copy, and read it to my 21 month old almost every day. He loves Robert, and yells "Bless you Robert!" after every sneeze. I am so glad to see its been reissued and available, as I want to buy it for my friends' children.

this has got to be the best book for kids My friends kids love this book . I have bought it for other friends that have kids and they also love it. It is so good for one reason is younger kids can get into the part where Robert starts to sneeze. . . The older kids can take part in reading the book with you . That was always the best part of reading with chirlden . I'm so glad you have this book and I will be getting for my friends kids. Thank you again.

Format: Hardcover
For the first few years after Dr. Seuss established the Beginner Books name (roughly 1957-67), he and his wife Helen Palmer were heavily involved in choosing and editing the books. If you and your child love Seuss then you'll probably enjoy almost any BB book from that period, even those from such now-obscure authors as Heilbroner, Robert Lopshire and Marion Holland. This is a wonderfully charming and positive story with a great "KERCHOO!!" hook; the P.D. Eastman illustrations are also terrific (and very funny).

I found this book among the books my parents had for me when I was a child and quickly ordered my daughter her own copy. My 2 year old daughter loves this book. I have read it to her about a million times and is already helping me read it. Great for older kids as well.

We had this book and the copy was so old that it fell apart from reading it so much. My son who is now 4, memorized it at age 2 and we are purchasing another copy because he asked for it the other day so that he could read it to his two year old sister. It is easy to read and understand and children really enjoy it. We highly recommend it and it makes a great gift.

What a wonderful book! My 5 year old and I read this together and have many laughs as Robert bowls everyone over with his sneezes. She is a horse lover, but his book would appeal to anyone who has a sense of humor. I look forward to reading this one at bedtime and we never, ever tire of it.

Format: Hardcover
This was my favorite book as a young child. I had asthma and allergies and this book helped me to realize I could do or be anything. Now, I have a 16-month-old son and he LOVES this book. It is his favorite book of all the ones we read to him. It is a great book for any child, but especially for one struggling with allergies, asthma or other medical problems.
