The Cat in the Hat Beginner Book Dictionary (I Can Read It All by Myself Beginner Books) Hardcover – August 12, 1964
Frequently bought together
Customers who bought this item also bought
A decades-old dictionary that you can still use today (and know that children will love it) is an amazing testament to the genius of the Seuss stable. The roughly 12-per-page colored drawings are dated, of course--the humans far more than the animals, funnily enough--but they've aged in a way that adds to their charm rather than detracting from it. (Phonograph may take some explaining; ditto typewriter, which we recently heard described as "like a computer, only with paper instead of a screen.") The 1,350 words are well balanced between the obvious stuff--common nouns and verbs--and more abstract language, from about to yet. Each word is accompanied by a drawing and an illustrative sentence. Along the way, naturally, we meet a wacky menagerie of humans and animals: "Aaron the alligator making more machines," "Aunt Ada standing on her head," etc. (Ages 4 to 8) --Richard Farr
From the Inside Flap
Illus. in full color. "The picture carries the meaning in this dictionary of over a thousand elementary words from 'Aaron' the alligator to a nest full of 'zyxuzpf' birds. The book gets a large 'A' for its commonsense-through-nonsense approach to reading." "The New York Times.

If I had realized these were tiny books I wouldn't have ordered them.
If you want the hardcovers at the full size you should get the three book collections as starters. That route is more expensive. I would have preferred the hardcovers, but this softcover deal was too good to pass up.
The retail price is $190 on this. Half that price would be a fair deal. I paid less -- a great deal.
Invest in books for kids and lots of them. Lots of them. Turn off the TV. Read.
