By ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on April 10, 2010
Format: Hardcover
I have "The Big Green Book of Beginner Books" and The BIG Blue Book of Beginner Books. The stories in both books are easy for beginning readers; but the stories in the blue book have full plots and are more interesting. The green book stories are sillier and nonsensical. Dr. Seuss has written much better stories than these.

My daughter says she likes both books equally well. She especially enjoys searching for all the silly objects in "Wacky Wednesday." I will give her opinion more weight in the star rating. After all, it is a children's book and it does what I want, which is motivate her to read. I personally would have given it 3 stars.

If you are trying to decide between the blue book or the green book, I'd recommend the blue book.

I have a 6 yr old son, in first grade. He is shy, but he becomes more shy because he has issues with reading. He came to me one day, after he went to the school library, and he picked out this book and started reading it. It came so easy for him and felt very comfortable reading it. He then wanted me to buy it so he could begin reading some stories to his class. I have never seen him so excited about reading, especially in front of his classmates. The book contains about 6 or 7 stories of which each story is about 10 -12 pages. This was by far the best money I spent on a book for my son.

My 1st grade daughter would not read and then she got hooked on Dr. Seuss' Sam I Am so when I saw these books I knew these would be a hit. My daughter loves them and it's the only thing she will read. So if your child is stubborn to get reading and they love Dr. Seuss these books are great. And I would say they are perfect for 1st and 2nd graders. Not too many words a page but not too little either.

Bought this book along with two others of the same name (different "color"). I have a 5 yr old daughter and a 6 year old son that are learning to read and practicing with the reading that they know. They love these books. I would definitely recommend to anyone with young children that are wanting some beginner "first books". I actually remember some of the books included in these sets from when I was very young. So apparently these books can have a very long lasting fond memory for your children. My daughter just keeps wanting to read them over and over and each time she gets better and better.

This is the 2nd Beginner Book with multiple stories that I have bought for my grand daughter. We like the Dr Suess books and they are good reading for a child just beginning to read, It is nice because all the books are together and She can just choose which she wants to read, All children when they are learning to read need books that are the correct level and these are great to read to a child that isn't quite ready to read and then they can just move into reading them themselves. I love the book, my daughter loves the book, my grand daughter loves the book AND my grandson also loved to have the book read to him. My grand daughter even reads to her little brother at times. Nice bonding time for them!

I saw this book in a store and bought it with my 5 year old grandson in mind. He loves the fact that it is a thick book, just like grandma's. He even put in a bookmark like mine to hold his place after he reads the stories. It is easy to read and unlike some of the Dr. Seuss books, makes a lot of sense in the story lines. He loves this book and can't wait to come to my house and read with his grandma. I just ordered the Big Blue book for him for Christmas. I highly recommend this book.

This color compendium of some six Dr. Seuss beginner books features GREAT DAY FOR UP, WOULD YOU RATHER BE A BULLFROG?, WACKY WEDNESDAY and others, with complete text and art and original illustrations. This compliments CAT IN THE CAT and other readers for ages 5-8 and packages six Suess classics under one cover. A lovely gift for any beginning reader.

These are our favorite books for our toddler, very fun to read and great illustrations as you would expect from Dr. Seuss. Plus if you're traveling you can bring just one book with you rather than several.
