    A treasured memory from childhood, I bought many Dr. Seuss books to read to my children when they were small. I discovered a surprising thing; I thought that I was well read and a literate adult..., reading these books out aloud requires great concentration and voice control (especial...

    I like that at the end of this book, when the mother comes home and the text reads: Should we tell her about it? Now, what SHOULD we do? Well... What would YOU do If your mother asked YOU? My daughter always looks up at me and says: I would tell you. But I don't believe h...

    I really can't stand this book. It's one of those my son had me read over and over when he was little. Seriously, what kind of mother leaves her young children home alone? Who is this cat? Why is he such a troublemaker? Is it okay that they do all that rotten stuff just because it all ...

    ?The Cat in the Hat? was one of Dr. Seuss? most popular children?s books ever created. The book featured the stove pipe hat feline troublemaker who tries to show two bored kids how to have fun on a rainy day with disastrous results. The Cat in the Hat has forever remained to be...

    The most cynical book ever written describes the cycle of every generation: first you hate the machine, then you rage against the machine, then you embrace the machine, then you become the machine. Sally and her brother, who, like Dostoevsky's sick man and Ralph Ellison's Invisi...

    Ha, I know that adding this book is cheating. But I just read a very funny review by a friend, which reminded me how much the kids and I enjoyed the movie of this. Even more fun than Horton Hears a Who. The latter is the highest Dr Seuss on my list, though, for its philosophical point ...

    This "kids' book" is, in my opinion, a nightmare-quality horror story. Why, you ask? What's scary about a funny-looking cat? *shudder* Well, what's so scary about these cute things? (Well, there actually is nothing scary about that last one. That still doesn't make it any less of ...

    **** This book has always given me the impression that Dr. Seuss is a master mischief maker. He has this smarmy Cat barge his way into these poor kid's house (when their mother isn?t home) and then he proceeds to make a colossal mess. It?s all very distressing. In fact, as a...

    What else can be said of this all time children's classic except that it is as enjoyable to read as an adult? I have three boys, two grown now, and all three have listened to me read this to them and perhaps there was a while when I could have read it in my sleep (and may have!) If...

    Book Review Everyone's heard of SEUSS (Dr) (I hope). 4 stars to The Cat in the Hat, an adorable children's book full of little amusing pictures and rhymes. Kids love the absurdity. It's an opportunity for the reader to use different voices... to dress up... to be free and fun a...

    In honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday I post an annual review of one of his works. Normally they fart sunshine and rainbows, but today we're going to spend a minute with the book that makes me want to . . . . I know this is a classic and it's Seuss and no one is supposed to blasphem...

    What I like in this classic children's story is the illustrations and the rhyming which will be very entertaining to read for kids. I like the ending part where the children were thinking if they will tell their mother what happened while she was away. The lesson is very simple...

    This was tongue tying. Too much so! Indy and I haven't read many of these, although he did ask for it off his brother's shelf. I was stumbling over my words, probably to try and get through it quickly.. this cat was too long! Made me feel tired! He's still quite cool of course. Just no...

    I would recommend The Cat in the Hat to anybody. Dr. Seuss wrote this book like poetry by having the lines rhyme with each other. The story of the book is don't trust strangers; in this case the cat with the hat. The cat brings a box to children at home while their mother is gone, and ...

    I don't remember ever reading Dr. Suess (I'm sure I did, only it was SO long ago), so this just put me in such good spirits! I remember how giddy these made me feel, and the rhyming is just so whimsical, no books can compare to these. I'm collecting all of Dr. Suess's work and this was...

    Well what would you do if your mother asked you? ME WHILE READING THIS ME AFTER READING I swear I don't know why this made me laugh so freaking hard. I really don't. I mean the story was funny, the rhyming so fun, but it didn't warrant my hysterical outbursts. But I'm ...

    At first, with his big French accent, I couldn?t understand my kid asking for ?le chat in da at? but I soon deduced it. This story about making a major mess and then cleaning it up before mom gets home is beyond a classic. And still a favorite for my son. I heard there was even a...
