The Silliness of Seuss Plus a Valuable Lesson,
This review is from: Hooper Humperdink...? Not Him! (Bright & Early Books(R)) (Hardcover)
Although [advertised] for ages 4-8, my wife and I started reading this and other Seuss books to our children from 6 months on. We started a great habit of reading two or three Seuss books before bed, and the kids loved them. Soon, they would memorize many of the phrases, beginning a lifelong passion for reading.
Every kid should experience reading Hooper Humperdink while growing up. Hooper Humperdink..? Not Him! combines the zaniness of other Seuss books with a lesson about excluding others. Around ages 4+, kids begin to divide the world into various segments (i.e. boys and girls). This book helps children learn how hurtful excluding someone for being different can be. Combine this with other fun Seuss books and your kids will sit enthralled as you turn the pages. Highly recommended.
