A classic Beginner Book about cause-and-effect written by Rosetta Stone—the pen name for Dr. Seuss writing with Micheal Frith!

Little things can have a big impact, as in this funny Beginner Book by Dr. Seuss (writing under the name Rosetta Stone) and Michael Frith. When a little bug sneezes, he unknowingly sets off a hilarious chain reaction that wreaks havoc clear across town. From a toppled turtle to a sinking ship to a disrupted circus parade, Because a Little Bug Went Ka-Choo! takes a hysterical look at consequences in a way that only Dr. Seuss can.

Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.

 "A little bug sneezes, causing a chain of calamities. Repetition helps beginning readers and cartoon-like characters add zest."—School Library Journal.

We have a number of the Dr. Seuss books. My daughter is 2 and really enjoys this story. She frequently selects it from her bookshelf and enjoys looking at all the animals on the pages. Cute read.

This is a fantastic book that shows how one thing can set off a chain reaction. Beautifully illustrated and told, this book has a Seuss-like rhythm. Wonderful for emerging readers.

The children at my school love this book. It is a great read-aloud. I found out quite by accident last year that it needed to be included with the Dr. Seuss collection along with the Theo. LeSieg titles.

I think that the book shows young children and even adults that every little thing you do effects the world around. Everytime you smile, or say I love you or anything could effect someones life in a huge way!

This was the most requested book for before bed reading in my home more than 15 years ago. I read it so many times the binding came apart. The easy rhyming pages and the path the story takes led both my son and myself to be able to recite the entire book by heart. Now I am buying a new one for my class.
