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.

Compliments the original beginner set. Great to read to children and for your beginning reader. Thick cover and colorful pages. Great gift for beginning library. The purple cover you see is a thin box holding the individual books.

The purchase of this collection was for our three grandchildren. The words and the ryhming of the stories of Dr. Seuss writings are so much fun!!! My granddaughter is in kindergarten and learning words that rhyme has been a portion of her homework. These books are essential for the whole family. The money spent for these books has been well worth it. I purchased these books from Amazon which is a competitive provider with prices on most products.

I bought these because, even though he's only 6 months old, my son loves being read Dr. Seuss books. We think it has to do with the colorful pictures and cadence of the rhymes, because he doesn't get anywhere near excited with non-rhyming books. His great aunt got him the first beginner book collection, and after we saw how excited he got over those, we bought these so we weren't reading the same set of books over and over again. My mom has gotten him the Dr. Seuss board books, but they are abridged and very short. And while he likes chewing on the board books, he appears to enjoy looking at the pictures and being read to from the full length books better.

Great set. Everyone loves Dr. Seuss. Baby has two big sisters, so we purchased both sets and gave them to the girls so that they felt included in the baby shower. It teaches the big siblings the importance of their role in reading to baby. Makes them feel special and included in the responsibility of the newest member of their family. Totally recommend. Reading is so very important in development of children from early early early on!!!!

Books arrived on time. My little readers were sooooo excited. They carry them everywhere we go. Car rides to the store have turned into "read aloud" time. My ears love the music of learning!!!!! Thank you Dr Seuss and Amazon

The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is that I would have liked them to have been a bit larger, that being said the size really was fine. I liked the selection choice.

I purchased this as a gift. It was perfect! Hard cover books in a cardboard cover box. Excellent for anyone who loves Dr. Seuss.
