Making it Fun to Read

The gift of reading and loving books is one that lasts a lifetime and can never be taken away. Dr. Suess has helped give that gift to so many in the world. A top holiday gift for kids, books by authors like Dr. Suess, provide quality entertainment that includes giggles while learning to read. A great family time activity that can be taken anywhere and is not electronic, thanks to Dr. Suess for a fun library that translates to every generation. It's amazing to listen to my child reading the same Dr. Suess books to her littlest friends, that I read as I child myself and to her.

I have almost the entire collection but here is a list of my top ten favorites:

The Lorax, a Story about the Present

When my brothers and I were children in the '70s, we had Fox In Sox. I can still recite the entire tweedle beetle battle scene.

Now, is your tongue numb?

Writers Dog: We had Green Eggs and Ham on a LP record and used to love listening to it reciting it at the same time; great memories with Dr. Seuss, thanks for sharing.

I also love Dr. Suess. My two favorites are Green Eggs and Ham and The Cat in the Hat. Voted up and awesome!

vespawoolf; The Cat in the Hat is one of his most popular I think, you must be from my era ... and of course Green Eggs and Ham I have been reciting to my kid driving her crazy with for about 10 years now ... he certainly made memorizing fun to, not just reading ...

glad you found it awesome.

Yes, I'm from that era! His books were my favorite and I read them to my brother and sister, nephews and nieces, etc. His widow had the nicest house in La Joya, but that's another subject! : )

My family has been read Dr. Seuss books and love them. There is only one Dr. Seuss. He wrote the greatest books.

You've got to love Dr. Suess. "How the Grinch stole christmas" and "the Lorax" were my favorites.

Fun hub,

Rob

Robwrite; I just love little Cindy Loowho from the Grinch, yes he had quite the imagination, glad he shared it.

Thanks for stopping by to remind me of the Grinch, and am looking forward to seeing if the Lorax movie stays true to the book...

The Lorax film didn't stick too close to the details of the book but it captures the spirit. (I'll doing a review on it.)
