The Best of Dr. Seuss

Green Eggs and Ham Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss
This timeless Dr. Seuss classic was first published in 1960, and has been delighting readers ever since. Sam-I-am is as persistent as a telemarketer, changing as many variables as possible in the hopes of convincing the nameless skeptic that green eggs and ham are a delicacy to be savored.
The Cat in the Hat The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss
He may be an old standby, but he never lets us down. When in doubt, turn to the story of the cat that transformed a dull, rainy afternoon into a magical and just-messy-enough adventure. There's another, hidden adventure, too: this book really will help children learn to read. With his simple and often single-vowel vocabulary, the good Doctor knew what he was doing: hear it, learn it, read it--laughing all the way. The Cat in the Hat is a must for any child's library.
Yertle the Turtle Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories by Dr. Seuss
Yet more wisdom cast down from high atop Mt. Seuss, this cheerful trio of tales teaches some valuable lessons in humility--thanks to a sharp-eyed worm, a bragging bear and rabbit, a fuzzy-tailed bird, and a couple hundred turtles led by their foolish King Yertle.
Horton Hatches the Egg Horton Hatches the Egg by Dr. Seuss
Poor Horton. Dr. Seuss's kindly elephant is persuaded to sit on an egg while its mother, the good-for-nothing bird lazy Maysie, takes a break. Little does Horton know that Maysie is setting off for a permanent vacation in Palm Springs. He waits, and waits, never leaving his precarious branch, even through a freezing winter and a spring that's punctuated by the insults of his friends. Horton has the patience of Job--from whose story this one clearly derives--and he is rewarded in the end by the surprise birth of... an elephant-bird. Horton Hatches the Egg contains some of Theodor Geisel's most inspired verse and some of his best-ever illustrations, the dated style of which only accentuates their power and charm. A book no childhood should be without.
Horton Hears a Who Horton Hears a Who by Dr. Seuss
Surely among the most lovable of all Dr. Seuss creations, Horton the Elephant represents kindness, trustworthiness, and perseverance--all wrapped up, thank goodness, in a comical and even absurd package. Horton hears a cry for help from a speck of dust, and spends much of the book trying to protect the infinitesimal creatures who live on it from the derision and trickery of other animals, who think their elephant friend has gone quite nutty.
Dr. Seuss' Sleep Book Dr. Seuss' Sleep Book by Dr. Seuss
"Deliberately calculated to make its readers yawn. No one could resist those zillions of astonishing sleepyheads."--The New York Times.
The Sneetches and Other Stories The Sneetches and Other Stories by Dr. Seuss
This collection of four of Dr. Seuss's most winning stories begins with that unforgettable tale of the unfortunate Sneetches, bamboozled by one Sylvester McMonkey McBean ("the Fix-it-up Chappie"), who teaches them that pointless prejudice can be costly. Sneetches and Other Stories is Seuss at his best, with distinctively wacky illustrations and ingeniously weird prose.
The Lorax The Lorax by Dr. Seuss
In The Lorax , we find what we've come to expect from the illustrious doctor: brilliantly whimsical rhymes, delightfully original creatures, and weirdly undulating illustrations. But here there is also something more--a powerful message that Seuss implores both adults and children to heed.
The Cat in the Hat's Great Big Flap Book The Cat in the Hat's Great Big Flap Book by Dr. Seuss
Inspired by many of the best-loved Dr. Seuss classics, including The Cat in the Hat, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, and There's a Wocket in My Pocket! , this giant flap book is guaranteed to flip out even the unflappable. Giggling readers can lift more than 70 flaps to find such distinguished characters as Zeds, Findows, and Lollipop-Licking Lions.
On Beyond Zebra On Beyond Zebra by Dr. Seuss
On Beyond Zebra is about all the letters that most people ignore--the ones that come after Z. Our hero (instantly recognizable to most Seuss fans as the boy who captured Thing One and Thing Two in The Cat in the Hat) takes his young friend, Conrad Cornelius O'Donald O'Dell, on a guided tour of all the weird creatures that begin with letters such as Yuzz, Wumbus, and Glikk. "And Nuh is the letter I use to spell Nutches, Who live in small caves, known as Nitches, for hutches." The message is pretty simple: the alphabet pins down boring old "reality," but if you explore further afield there are more interesting worlds to discover. "So, on beyond Z! It's high time you were shown, / That you really don't know all there is to be known."
One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss
"Did you ever fly a kite in bed? Did you ever walk with ten cats on your head?" Such are the profound, philosophical queries posed in this well-loved classic by Theodor "Dr. Seuss" Geisel. Seuss's intention is clear: teach children to read in a way that is both entertaining and educational. Children today will be as entranced by these ridiculous rhymes as they have been since the book's original publication in 1960--so amused and enchanted, in fact, they may not even notice they are learning to read!
Five Favorite Dr. Seuss Stories A Hatful of Seuss: Five Favorite Dr. Seuss Stories by Dr. Seuss
Within its pages you'll find Theodor Seuss Geisel's exuberant creations Bartholomew and the Oobleck (1949), If I Ran the Zoo (1950), Horton Hears a Who! (1954), The Sneetches and Other Stories (1961), and Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book (1962). In Bartholomew and the Oobleck, a non-rhyming Seuss story, prepare for an eyeful of green goo. In If I Ran the Zoo, young Gerald McGrew decides he would make a few changes if he ran the zoo--including the acquisition of more unusual beasts (such as an Elephant-Cat) from places "quite out-of-the-way."
