Oh, The Places You'll Go when you read Dr Seuss books! How many places do you know where the Grickle-grass grows? Well, I sure don't know about Yoozer, but I'd rather not meet a Poozer in Pompelmoose Pass!

Reading these stories can be very amusing and tongue twisting, too! So, when I learned that you can get the unabridged audio CD of 9 of his books, I was thrilled.

Laura and Garrett reading.

Imagine listening to How the Grinch Stole Christmas read by Walter Matthau. Or Horton Hatches the Egg read by Billy Crystal. What a treat that would be!

Because they're unabridged, you can follow along with Dr Seuss from your very own library. If you read his books as much as we did, Mom would get a nice break from all that reading while giving the children some fun vocal variety. I'm tempted to pick one up for my new grandnephew.

When I asked the children to make a list of the Dr Seuss books they liked, they said it couldn't be done! They said that they liked them ALL. So, no matter which one you pick up, you can't go wrong. They all have a fun rhyming cadence to them, not to mention humorous places and problems that are just plain fun. Include these in your collection of home school books.

Just for ages 4-8? I think not. Embrace the life lessons:

I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew: (Reissue) (Classic Seuss)
This lesson wittily teaches you that the grass is not always greener on the other side. Maybe it’s Dr Seuss’ way of saying we need to practice contentment.

Six by Seuss: A Treasury of Dr. Seuss Classics
The six (which include his very first from 1937): And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street, The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, Horton Hatches the Egg, Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and The Lorax. Includes his very first book from 1937. Among the pages of these 6 books, you’ll experience such precious character clues as imagination, respectfulness, patience, faithfulness, persistence, honesty, humility, kindness, forgiveness and … Going Green? You’ll just have to read them!

On Beyond Zebra! (Classic Seuss)
Who needs the alphabet when you have Dr Seuss? This book stimulates the imagination to go beyond, encouraging another character quality: creativity. Let’s dare to be different. (Like we’re not already, since we homeschool!)

Fox in Socks (Beginner Books)
This one is his best tongue-twisting book ever. I have yet to get through the whole book without making a slip of the tongue! Now there’s a challenge…can you do it?

Oh, the Places You'll Go! (Classic Seuss)
Now here is a book we should get all of our graduating homeschoolers! It’s full of whimsical wisdom for that new journey in life. As a bonus, it lists (on the back cover) the entire collection of his books in the order they were written.

Green Eggs and Ham Book & CD (Book and CD)
Mark’s mom would make Green Eggs and Ham for the children when she had them over a meal. They loved it! Maybe that’s why, to this day, they are pretty good about trying darn near anything! It would do us all well to be flexible. And you can be sure that the wording in this book will definitely help your poor reader to know what am is before he’s done reading it (especially if his name is Sam)!

The Cat in the Hat (CD) and Other Dr. Seuss Favorites
Another learn-to-read read-aloud that has been on our bookshelves for years. The Cat gives new meaning to persuasiveness, determination, and boldness! It’s a classic. (This is the audio CD I mentioned above.)

If I Ran the Zoo (Classic Seuss)
Sometimes we just need to start over, but that can be a hard thing to do. Learn to become a decisive zookeeper!

McElligot's Pool (Classic Seuss)
Isn’t it better to look on the brighter side of things? Optimism, faith, and patience seem to “flow” from these pages!

The King's Stilts (Classic Seuss)
I wonder if this poor king works too hard?! Lessons on responsibility and self-control, diligence and dependability!

Sleep Book (Classic Seuss)
After reading this book you’ll be ready for a dreamy night of endless imagination!

You're Only Old Once! A Book for Obsolete Children
Last, but not least. I recently learned that Dr Seuss wrote this book to celebrate his 82nd birthday.

It’s hysterically accurate, right down to the bill.
Makes a great gift, when you’re “Over the Hill!”

(Sorry, I got carried away...!)


Whether you catch all the life lessons or not,
Dr Seuss books are sure to brighten anyone's day. Enjoy!
