One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish (I Can Read It All by Myself Beginner Books)
One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish - I Can Read It All by Myself Beginner Books Author:Dr. Seuss Illus. in full color. A "fabulous book of easy words, exciting pictures and inviting rhythm."--Elementary English. — "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. While many rhymes in this couplet collecti... more »on resemble sphinx-worthy riddles, Seuss's intention is clear: teach children to read in a way that is both entertaining and educational. It matters little that each wonderful vignette has nothing to do with the one that follows. (We move seamlessly from a one-humped Wump and Mister Gump to yellow pets called the Zeds with one hair upon their heads.) 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!

Not my favorite Dr. Seuss, if only because it's a little long.
A Dr. Seuss that's long is wrong -
My child falls asleep too fast!
Too many pages, he can't last.
Yeah, Dr. Seuss is always a favorite, but this one was one my kid always fell asleep during. He didn't hear the end of the book for years! As a storytime title, rather than a NAPtime choice, though, it's a great book for little ones. You might get tongue-tied reading it, but that's okay, too - you'll laugh together, reading will be fun and everything will work out perfectly!
