Dr. Seuss Week: Books for the Tiniest Tots

Dr. Seuss books are full of so much rhythm and cadence that they are fun to read to even the tiniest of babies.  Here are the ones that are well-known around our house:

Mr. Brown Can Moo!  Can You?
By Dr. Seuss
Originally Published in 1979
Perfect for 0-5 years old
Kids love this one.  Mr. Brown has great skills when it comes to imitating sounds, and children love trying to make the sounds that he makes.  From bees buzzing to hands knocking on a door, the book provides a large variety of sounds to try.  The original version has a greater number of sounds.  We own the board book and have really enjoyed it, but the original has some really fun pages not included in the board book.

There's a Wocket in My Pocket
By Dr. Seuss
Originally Published in 1976
Perfect for 2-5 years old

This one is full of imaginative creatures and fun wordplay, both of which are so important in the beginning years.  Some of the made-up creatures are enjoyable to be around, but others are far less than charming.  

What Was I Scared Of?
By Dr. Seuss
  Originally Published in 1961
Perfect for 2-5 years old
A Seuss creature has never been afraid of much until he meets a pair of green pants with nobody inside them.  The thought of pants that ride a bike and move around without anybody wearing them just doesn't sit well with the creature [or anyone, for that matter!].  He can't seem to kick the fear until he runs into the pants and sees that the pants are scared of him, as well.  This one is a bedtime favorite at our house.  

 What are your favorites?
Happy reading!
