Typical Dr. Seuss. Loads of fun to read aloud to students. tongue-twisters help engage the listner as well as the reader.

I had a wonderful time with this book with both of my, now, grown sons. I can still hear them belly laughing...

We had a lot of fun with this book, it not only helps with speed-speaking, but also reading quickly too. Lots of silly tongue-twisters

This delightful book of tongue twisters was the absolute favorite of my son when he was little. I still from time to time say the tongue twisters just to keep in practice, and prove I still can. The wit and imagination of Dr. Seuss shines through every line, particularly so in the one about the East Beast and the West Beast.

Not my favorite Dr. Seuss. The tongue twisters are definitely twisters, but they don't really capture my child's imagination like his stories do. Fox in Sox is a better choice for tongue twisters for children.

Some readers obviously have fond memories of this one--not me. I find it to be one of Dr. Seuss's weaker efforts (and not nearly up to the level of my tongue twisting favorite, Fox in Socks). Still, even weak Dr. Suess is better than plenty of the mindless drivel you can find in the children's books department of your favorite book store.

Oh my brothers, oh my sisters, these are terrible tongue twisters. I really like this book because it is challenging and you can learn a lot. And, it is funny. I like Oh Say Can You Say so much that i will give it five stars.
