I was a late comer to the wonderful world of Dr. Seuss. Don't ask me how I missed him in my very young years, but I did. Luckily I became an Aunt at a fairly young age and my nephew was kind enough to share his love of these books with me. Especially if I would read them to him.
Needless to say, he didn't have to ask me twice. We both loved the way the words rhymed and just the very sound of them as they tripped off the tongue of the reader made us laugh. These were books that were written to be read aloud.
And the wonderful stories weren't ones to be read once and forgotten, either. Over and over we kept coming back to them. They were our very favorite reading session material. At the time we thought them perfect in every way.
But now we have been proven wrong. With the addition of the Dr. Seuss stuffed animal collection, now they are even better.
