The Cat in the Hat Learning Library books are fantastic! Each book is incredibly educational while also being fun and engaging. It’s a winning combination. I can not recommend them highly enough. We have bought nearly all of the books. Even though my younger daughter has aged past them, she insists we keep buying them and will not part with them. This is a bit of a bone of contention in my house, because my older daughter teaches and wants them in her classroom. Our compromise is that my older daughter sneaks out one book at a time on an as-needed basis - and brings it right back!

I’m sorry, but if I had known they weren’t even going to tell you what pet they decided on, I wouldn’t have bought the book. The whole time I’m reading and pointing out the different animals to my son and asking, “which one do you think they are going to get?” Just to find out the book doesn’t tell us. The entire thing is about what pet to get and they don’t even tell you. It’s crap. I literally said that out loud when I finished the book. I get using your imagination, but not when its what the whole book is about.

Bought this book for our great grandson because the Dr. Seuss books are excellent for beautiful colors and the rhyming attract see their attention and they learn something from each book — sorry to see the controversial comments about these fantastic books

This book is a big disappointment. I'm a huge Dr. Seuss fan. Good messages, great wordplay. That said, this book has neither. Its very short, and is not all that interesting. Save your money. Take it out of the library, read it once. That's all you need. Get If I ran The Circus. I have read that book a hundred times.

Wonderful wonderful book! When I was young, my grandmother gave me the 1st Dr. Seuss book--it had just been published.-and I fell in love with "And To Think I Saw It On Mulberry Street". Consequently, I have in my possession, all but 3 or 4 of his "big" books and many of the smaller "I Can Read" books. My children grew up on these books and now my grandchildren are reading them too--including my 15 year old grandson. When "What Pet Should I Get?" arrived, they all gathered around and we read it together and tried to guess the pet. I hope that more will be found and published! And although I have collected articles about him over the years, the last 8 pages of the book are a wonderful glimpse into the life of a very special man and author!

My three year old preschoolers enjoyed this story as much as I did. It has everything one expects in a Dr. Seuss book, fantastic creatures and creative language, and the message of making careful decisions is a well presented.

This is the famously posthumous Seuss discovery, reconstructed by his widow and last editor at Random House. It's not top-drawer Seuss, which may be why he buried it beneath another, simpler, wackier project: "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish." But it surely has its delights. For adults, one of those bonuses is a brief description of Ted Geisel's working methods, his art, and the history of this book's reconstruction.

I bought this for a friend's son whose turtle or goldfish had just died -- yeah, the goldfish I think. Doesn't matter; he had to make a choice and with Prime I was able to get the book to him before he had made his decision. A Big Hit!!

Mr Ian B Robinson
Not his bestReviewed in the United Kingdom on January 15, 2020
Perhaps why he did not release this work when he was alive. It lacks his usual playful use of words and language and takes the reader on a rather ponderous journey before it finishes as it begun.
The pleasures of lifeReviewed in the United Kingdom on April 23, 2016
Over many years, for my children; Grandchildren and now, Great Grandchildren, I have purchased much of the work of Dr. Seuss. I have read them to all the young element of my family and, God willing, I will have the opportunity of reading them to my Great Grandchildren. Not only do I feel that all children should have the books read to them but, If my response is normal, much amusement will be enjoyed by the adults. The children will be more pleased if the reader can attach a different character to each by the use of the voice when reading. I have absolutely no acting desires or abilities for imitating a voice but, not only did I glean much pleasure from changing voices but the children enjoyed the stories even more.
