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,
He then points to a pink-eyed, friendly-looking rabbit, and says,
With a picture of the boy winking, the boy says,
With a picture of the rabbit, the boy says,
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!"

This version of the book was not illustrated by Dr. Seuss. The illustrations are softer than Seuss' style yet contain plenty of Seuss humor and fun.
I love the ease of learning new words this book offers. It encourages a high level of success for every new reader. The fun pictures and humor make it an even better experience. The rhyming we are familiar with from Dr. Seuss is present but in a much much simpler form. I recommend this book for any prereader as well as any early reader due to its high success factor.
"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.Read more ›
