About the Author

THEODOR SEUSS GEISEL—aka Dr. Seuss—is one of the most beloved children’s book authors of all time. From The Cat in the Hat to Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, his iconic characters, stories, and art style have been a lasting influence on generations of children and adults. The books he wrote and illustrated under the name Dr. Seuss (and others that he wrote but did not illustrate, including some under the pseudonyms Theo. LeSieg and Rosetta Stone) have been translated into thirty languages. Hundreds of millions of copies have found their way into homes and hearts around the world. Dr. Seuss’s long list of awards includes Caldecott Honors for McElligot’s Pool, If I Ran the Zoo, and Bartholomew and the Oobleck, the Pulitzer Prize, and eight honorary doctorates. Works based on his original stories have won three Oscars, three Emmys, three Grammys, and a Peabody.

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: Hardcover
Dr. Suess has created a legacy that can only be called fantastic. I remember as child loving his stories and the uniquely intimate style of his floppy-looking drawings. Now that I am a father, I get to relive a lot of that when I read to my kids. But I see more now: his books have plenty of wonderful messages, some of them moral, some social, some ecological. It is really brilliant stuff, and instructive.

My 6-year old son just can't ge enough of the Lorax. Beyond the fact that it is stimulating for him to read, he is wondering about the messages in it. It makes me happy and gratified to watch his mind develop. THere is no better source, I think. But he likes the other stories as well, and has plenty of questions about their themes as well. In a time when a single kids book might cost $15, this is indeed a good investment.

Warmly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
Most "compilation" children's books--books that collect a large number of originals into one volume--are horrible. They typically include only part of the original story, or only some of the pictures, or else they shrink the pictures in order to save space. This one, though, is the real deal--it's six complete Dr. Seuss books, collected under one cover but otherwise exactly the same as if you were buying the six originals. If your children love Dr. Seuss (are there any that don't?) then this will get you through a lot of bedtimes.

I should also emphasize one other point that has confused some new parents I have talked to: these are Dr. Seuss "big books", which are only suitable for children four and older (a couple of them won't work until your child is five or six, or didn't for mine). Younger children simply don't have the attention span to appreciate these stories. For them, you should stick to his "Beginner Books" (Green Eggs and Ham, Seven Apples up on Top, The Foot Book, etc.).

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
"Six by Seuss" was a fantastic buy. I am a teacher, and the stories in this book present a fun way to teach life lessons. "The Lorax" opens up possible discussion about environmental responsibility. "Yertal the Turtle" shows an example of a bad leader, and how far is too far. "Hortan and the Egg" teaches faithfulness and sticking to your word. Those are just three of the eight stories (three of them are short stories), but each one shows important principles for children to learn while presented in a fun and creative way! It helps open up discussion, but can also simply be read aloud for rhyming meter and repetitive diction.

Format: Hardcover
This collection was appealing in the store, but after a while, it seemed awkward to heft around this enormous book instead of a slim volume containing a single story. When you've got a squirming toddler at hand, the book gets heavy and inconvenient. I have no complaints with the stories themselves, which are charming and funny. In the end, however, I would have been happier if I had bought the individual volumes.

This is a great book for anyone looking to buy Dr.Seuss books. Why buy 1 book when you get this one for less and it has 6 long stories.

My 23 month old daughter loves Horton Hatches The Egg. She also likes And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street. She is a little bit too young for most of the rest of it.

This book is great. I was so pleased to find it. I had bought one 16 years ago for my children and bought this one for a great-nephew. I hope I can find it for many years to come.
