About the Author
THEODOR SEUSS GEISEL—aka Dr. Seuss—is one of the most beloved children’s book authors of all time. From The Cat in the Hat to Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, his iconic characters, stories, and art style have been a lasting influence on generations of children and adults. The books he wrote and illustrated under the name Dr. Seuss (and others that he wrote but did not illustrate, including some under the pseudonyms Theo. LeSieg and Rosetta Stone) have been translated into thirty languages. Hundreds of millions of copies have found their way into homes and hearts around the world. Dr. Seuss’s long list of awards includes Caldecott Honors for McElligot’s Pool, If I Ran the Zoo, and Bartholomew and the Oobleck, the Pulitzer Prize, and eight honorary doctorates. Works based on his original stories have won three Oscars, three Emmys, three Grammys, and a Peabody.

There are five separate hardcovers books in this collection, and they come protected in a fitted cardboard sleeve. Each book is one complete story, with funny characters, unusual adventuresome plots, and all have happy endings. The stories are all illustrated and the font is large and easy to read, the tongue twisters are catchy and fun and the plot of the stories move at a smooth and easy pace.
These stories and pictures capture a toddler’s attention, and they listen without any restless squirming. When my son was at that very young age he always requested that I read the same story ‘again’.
He kept his full collection and now that he has two young children of his own, both he and my daughter-in-law read them to their children as part of their bedtime ritual. Since all these stories are fun and amusing, and without any scary portions, they make the perfect transition from sleepy wakefulness to a peaceful sleep.
However, I bought this starter set for my niece who has one-year old twins. My niece and her husband live in a small apartment with very limited space and with all the toys received from both families, and all the relatives and friends they have run out of room. Therefore if everyone would just send the children a birthday card and come for a visit that would suffice for their birthday. Unfortunately, I live over 3,000 miles away and therefore a ‘drop-over’ for a visit is not possible for me. Therefore, I felt compelled to send something more than just birthday cards, and sent this set of books as well.
Both her and her husband loved this gift. Books take up a minimum of space, and since she is an avid reader she has ‘story-time’ with her children twice a day, afternoons and at bedtime, and furthermore she enjoyed the Dr. Seuss books from when she was toddler and never grew tired of his stories, even as she grew older.
This is an ideal and universal gift for all children. No matter our age, these books are entertaining, and interesting for adults to read out loud with humorous tongue twisters, and sure to delight all girls and boys. This is a sensational start to introduce the joy of reading, and a perfect start for any child’s book collection.
To get his books I'd crawl through bogs; I would read them to my dogs. Of Dr. Seuss, I'm such a fan; I would read them on the can. I would read them on my bike, or read them as I take a hike. I'd read them if it rains or snows, I'd read them while I blow my nose. I'd sneak to read them while at work; I'd even share them with a jerk. I would read them in a tree - no better books will ever be. I loved these books as child or Gram; I love these books, big fan I am.
Im glad i got these, as she needed some new books - transition from baby books to bigger kid books!
I didnt grew up in US, so never grew up reading any Dr.Seuss.
But now i understand why they are so precious. Its not your stupid Cinderella, or some princess stories. I dont buy those!
