I have taught my 3 children to read with 2 books, Green Eggs & Ham and Fox in Socks. It's fun reading that always holds the childs interest and and you can start reading to them at 2 years old or younger. Dr. Suess hit the nail on the head with his books.

A silly Seuss book full of rhyming, tongue twisting fun....... Its too lengthy for the super young but a silly book too..... grades 1-2

A fox with socks goes through a series of tongue twisters that get more and more complex until Knox finally has enough.

A terrific tongue-twisting book. A favorite read-aloud for my son many years ago that still goes over well with children as much as six or seven years old when I read it to them.

My daughter and I are big fans of Dr. Seuss and we have most of his books. Fox in Socks is one of our absolute favorites. Seuss pulled out all the stops with this one. The tongue twisting rhymes are challenging every time, but at the same time the story and pictures are just plain fun. We make a contest of it to see if we can read the whole book without making any mistakes and we go as fast as we can. This book is fun from start to finish and is one of our all-time favorite children's books, period.

Another tongue-twisting fun book to read aloud. Lots of giggled enclosed.

This is without a doubt my all time favorite from Dr. Seuss. The tongue twisters are silly and truly challenging and the illustrations are great. My 21 month old daughter has started pulling this one off the shelf at bedtime, and let me tell you, it is a pleasant break from book after book after book of "The New Adventures of Curious George." The tweedle beetle section has to considered one of the all time supreme tongue twisters. I much prefer Fox in Sox to Oh Say Can You Say, which inexplicably seems to be the better known of the two. This one is fun, and funny, and it gives your tongue some serious exercise. What more could you ask for?

This is probably my favourite Dr. Seuss book and one that I feel does not get enough attention in comparison to his others. Written as a series of tongue twisters, it will spark a child's interest in the English language while imparting the subtle lesson that you can stand up to others who try to make you do things you don't want to do. I have also shared this book with several speakers of foreign languages either getting acquainted with English themselves or looking for good English-language literature for their American-born children, and this book is always a hit with them as well.

This Fox is a tricky fox. He'll try to get your tongue in trouble." Dr. Seuss gives fair warning to anyone brave enough to read along with the Fox in Socks, who likes to play tongue-twisting games with his friend Mr. Knox.

A fox in sox takes a knox on a wild adventure where they meet new animals doing all kinds of silly things. The fox wants the Knox to repeat the tongue twisters as a game. He steadily becomes angry and tells the fox he can not say such things. As they continue, the Knox finally catches the Fox and stuffs him in a bottle with his other rhyming friends.

This is definitely a book for a young crowd of students. I enjoyed it, and it has clever illustrations.
conuly on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
This book is nothing more than a list of tongue twisters.Each set of tongue twisters gets progressively harder and harder (not to mention more and more disastrous in the illustrations) until Mr. Knox throws his hands up in frustration, and it all starts over again.Definitely read it before you read it aloud! I'd also recommend this book for the late stage of early readers - the words are just simple enough for them to actually be able to read them, while the wordplay is tricky enough to make it a really fun challenge.There are a few minor concerns. First of all, the fox really is a nasty character, and uses language that I know some parents object to - calling Mr. Knox dumb, that sort of thing. And of course it shows some violence in the tweedle beetle battle.This sort of thing doesn't concern me, but if it does concern you, as always, read before you buy.

The girls love it. I don't care for Dr Seuss' illustrations at all, but the language is funny enough.

This is one of my all time favourite kids books. Kids love hearing mum or dad trip over all the tounge twisters. The twisters start out simple, then get harder as you go along. A very fun book to read to your kids.Page one reads:"FoxSocksBoxKnox"

Fox in Socks is an absolutely delightful dance through thickets of tongue-twisting English prose - you cannot stop yourself from flying faster and faster through the levels of tongue-twistedness..and yet, you get tripped up on nearly every page! It's best to read this aloud to someone else, preferably a post-toddler kid who is him/herself learning the vagaries of English pronunciation. :-)

This is such a fun book! It is full of tricky tongue-twisters. It is one of my favorite books to read to my boys.
mamorico on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
My all time favorite book as a child. Now I get to read it (or try to) to my own child! This is a great book for the very young and for the early reader as well.
