We began reading to Stephen as soon as he was born. Our favorite books were those by Theodor Seuss Geisel (March 2, 1904 – September 24, 1991), best known as Dr. Seuss. He also wrote other children’s books under the pen name Theo LeSieg.
We started a collection of Dr. Seuss books through a book-of-the-month club. Our collection has been handed down to our granddaughter, so you won’t find it in our catalog here; however, scroll down to the bottom of this page to find other copies for sale.
We highly recommend these books for your young ones. They have whimsical illustrations by Geisel and other talented artists and relate some very important lessons for life—all with Giesel’s famous word experiments, rhymes, and lyrical prose.
Seussville is a website built by the publisher of Dr. Seuss books, Random House. There’s also a special section for Geisel’s other books that were written under the pen name Theo LeSieg. The website features a bookstore, a store for other Seuss products (toys & games, apparel, puzzles, educational kits, home furnishings, movies, music, cards and stationary, hats, bags, accessories, party supplies, art, collectibles, and a special teachers’ department), biographical material, videos, online games and activities, news and events, pages for parents and for educators, and an interactive character gallery.

There are many reasons that beginning readers may love this book, but perhaps the nonsensical words will have the most appeal.
"Take it SLOWLY. This book is DANGEROUS!" warns the author at the beginning of the book. That's because it's a rhyming, "Tongue Twister for Super Children."
Critical thinking, vocabulary, and curriculum connections are covered in this literature unit guide for Dr. Seuss's popular The Cat in the Hat.
"This book has special gifts for you—stories and poems to read under the Christmas tree." — From the back cover
