This book is part of a "book gift" for Christmas for our almost four year old grandson. This title intrigued us...something for the intelligent child who is very curious. Dr. Seuss is a great way to build a reading bond with your child, children, or grandchildren. Our whole family and circle of friends are heavy duty readers. When my sons were young they both had books in the car to keep them settled and quiet. Personal favorites can be read over and over again. Yes! Our grandson has a large personal library thanks to us, his other grandparents, and his aunts and uncles. You can't go wrong when you pick a good book from a good author for a child that you love.

This is largely a nonsense book, of course - most of what Seuss gives as examples are his classic made-up creatures. Bloogs blowing by, and a Rink-Rinker-Fink.But what a nonsense book! It's a lot of fun to read and talk about after. It may not be the most famous Seuss book, but it's certainly one of the best.

This book is a fun and silly fantasy, as the setting and characters are personified, yet realistic. The reader can imagine a girl swimming in a pool in a balloon over her house, because the imagination is so strongly used in this book. Dr. Seuss sets up the book in a manner allowing children to use their imagination and think of any setting they wish. Overall, it is a book that is sure to engage young children as they have such imaginative minds already.Age Appropriateness: PrimaryPlot: The plot of this fantasy is very realistic, because it is using pure imagination. Children can easily engage and use their imagination corresponding with the book.Media: Mixed Media

This book is funny because alot of the words in it are made-up. It would be a good book to read to younger kids and have them point out the made-up words at the end. This would require them to pay attention and think. I really like the bright and colorful pictures.

Beginner books by Dr. Seuss are still fun, even if you're not a beginner reader any more.

I love every single Dr. Seuss book written but I think this is one of my favorites because it opens up the possibilities and the impossibilities. Seuss understands that there is no end or limits to imagination. I like to apply this to a child's future. It is inspiring.

The make-believe characters, places, adjectives, and verbs show a true fantasy book. Dr. Suess has a great imagination and a flency of words to create many new phrases and still produce a book that makes sense. The illustrations provide the reader with textual clues. Many young readers may not be able to understand the story plot but by looking at the picture they could grasp a general understanding for the actions the characters are performing. The illustrations are also very unuasual and catch the readers eye when flipping through. Media- Colored PencilUse- Early Independent Reader

I have fun reading this to my daughter. She usually loses interest in this one pretty quickly though. These board books are very sturdy, they're the perfect size for babies and toddlers. Also the pages are easy for my daughter to turn.
