Amazon.com Review

"My eyes see. His eyes see. I see him. And he sees me." With text as simple as simple can be, Theo. LeSieg (a.k.a. Theodore Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss) uses humor and rhythm to encourage the very youngest children to discover the joy of reading. A big-eyed boy and a pink-eyed rabbit cavort through the book, seeing everything there is to see: a girl, a horse, an old tin can, the sun, the moon--even pink underpants (which makes them both blush). Rhyming objects give the brief "story" a lilting, happy cadence, and Joe Mathieu's cartoonish colorful pictures provide easy clues to the text. This is a friendly introduction to the wide, wondrous world of seeing and reading.

An offspring of the world-famous Beginner Books, Bright and Early Books for Beginning Beginners are designed for an even younger age group. Even preschoolers will be inspired to learn to read with these witty, appealing picture books. (Ages 2 to 5) --Emilie Coulter

From the Inside Flap

Our eyes see flies.
Our eyes see ants.
Sometimes they see
pink underpants.

Oh, say can you see? Dr. Seuss's hilarious ode to eyes gives little ones a whole new appreciation for all the wonderful things to be seen!

Format: Hardcover
If you liked Dr. Seuss's The Tooth Book, you will find this book equally rewarding.
In The Eye Book, Dr. Seuss explores the concept of what vision is, who has it, and why it's important. At the same time, he has created a book with an extremely small number of words (almost all of one syllable) and maximum amount of repetition to make memorizing and learning to read the book as simple as possible.
A handsome blue-eyed boy begins,
"Eye
Eyes
My eyes
My eyes"
He then points to a pink-eyed, friendly-looking rabbit, and says,
"His eyes
His eyes"
With a picture of the boy winking, the boy says,
"Wink eye
Wink eye"
With a picture of the rabbit, the boy says,
"Pink eye
Pink eye"
Then you move into the concept of what vision is -- seeing and being seen.
"My eyes see.
His eyes see.
I see him.
And he sees me."
The connection between humans and animals is nicely built from there. This will help your child to understand that we have many things in common with animals. Knowing that can lead to lots of empathic play and developing a more sensitive adult. Be prepared for your child to want a pet rabbit, though.
The book then uses the idea of seeing to add simple words, along with their images in order to help with word decoding. The words introduced include blue, red, bird, bed, sun, moon, fork, knife, spoon, girl, man, boy, horse, tin can, holes, poles, trees, clocks, bees, rocks, flies, ants, pink, underpants, rings, strings, rain, pie, dogs, and airplanes.
"Hooray for eyes!"
You can also use this book to establish an interest in flash cards.

This book is a great way to get young children interested in reading. The sentences are short. "My eyes My Eyes, His eyes His eyes" is just an example of the text. The book helps to identify the names of basic items, like trees or aminals. However, I like the 1968 version of The Eye Book better. The text is the same, but the illustrations are not so modernized. They are classic Seuss. The 1968 version is authored by Theo. LeSieg (Ted Geisel backwards!). Either version is a welcome addition to any Dr. Seuss collection.

Format: Hardcover
At first, I didn't think this book would be a real winner with my little one. But you just never know, huh? This "Eye" book, written by Dr. Seuss, is read nightly, with all the funny things that eyes can do and see, it proves to be quite interesting. The pink underpants definitely brings some giggles too! It's a pretty short book, one that can be easily memorized by toddlers. The book takes you on a tour of the various things that you can see with your eyes. The boy and the rabbit do everything from looking down holes to looking at the moon. It's quite cute but very basic so if you're looking for something for an older child, I'd pass on this one. The age limit is definitely true as stated above: 2-5.

I chose this title to teach my little one to read. He knows lots of words and this book was perfect to show him how to put them together to make short sentences. I created a study word list from the words he hadnt learned yet and in one weekend he read the entire book....Awesome!

My 22 month old can't get enough of this book! And, to my surprise, she just started reading it on her own! Well, maybe she just memorized the words, but turn the pages, point at the pictures and see what happens with your child...it's absolutely wonderful!

From 3 months old this book captured and held my infant's attention. He loves it! All I have to do is show him the cover and he lights up. Now at 5 months it is still his favorite. The little boy and his rabit are so endearing and the cheer at the end "Hooray, Hooray, Hooray for eyes!" receives a squeal of delight every time! I honestly would never be without this book again.

Wow, how grown up my grandaughter felt when she read this book to me. It's very easy reading. After my grandaughter checked it out three times in a row at the school libarary I jumped on the chance to buy it.
I've heard the story many many times: "my eye your eye"...and with each reading my grandaughter was learning how to recoginize these simple words, and now she can spell & write every word in this book!

I'm deeply grateful to be experiencing so fully the daily development of my grandsons by having the opportunity to babysit for them. As a mother, I worked outside of the home while my own sons were youngsters, with all of the outside pressures that always entails - so it's been nothing short of amazing to be able to focus solely on these little guys and rediscover the world through their eyes! When it came time for our younger grandson's first Christmas, he was just 9 months old. Grandpa & I thought it would be a better idea - since we already had an overabundance of toddler toys in the house that our older grandson no longer played with - to have his gifts that year be the beginning of a complete collection of Dr. Seuss books. The older one (4 year age difference) was able to start enjoying the "Beginner Books" series (age 4-8) immediately, and the (now 22 month old) younger one has graduated from board books to this "Bright and Early Books" series, with the clever tag line of being "for Beginning Beginners" (age 3 & under).

"The Eye Book" was the second of a dozen Dr. Seuss books in this series... this one is actually written under one of the pen names used by Theodor Geisel for books he authored but didn't illustrate, Theo. LeSieg (Geisel - otherwise known as Dr. Seuss - spelled backward). Apparently the first publication was in 1968 with Roy McKie as illustrator, but we purchased this 1999 hardcover version which is illustrated by Joe Mathieu, featuring a cartoonish-looking young boy and bunny - darling, colorful illustrations that really complement the simple words and keep a youngster interested.
