ABOUT WHAT PET SHOULD I GET?
In the Fall of 2013, an original manuscript with accompanying sketches by Dr. Seuss, aka Ted Geisel, was discovered in the La Jolla, California home of the late beloved children’s author. That complete manuscript was for the picture book, WHAT PET SHOULD I GET?, and will be published by Random House Children’s Books on July 28, 2015. It is the first original new Dr. Seuss book since the publication of the last book of Dr. Seuss’s career, Oh, the Places You’ll Go! in 1990. WHAT PET SHOULD I GET? captures the excitement of a classic childhood moment—choosing a pet—and features the brother and sister characters that Dr. Seuss drew in One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.

if i ran the circus - did
If I Ran the Circus byStep right up for Dr. Seuss’s classic rhyming picture-book tale of young Morris McGurk’s big circus dreams. This circus has more than a mere lion tamer and trapeze artist! At the Circus McGurkus, you’ll be intrigued by the wink-hooded Hoodwink, terrified by the Spotted Atrocious, and amazed by the daring feats of the great Sneelock. And these are just a few of the astonishing things you’ll find under this big top. Told with the humor and originality that are synonymous with Dr. Seuss, If I Ran the Circus is a crowd-pleasing showstopper!

MY THOUGHTS

Dr. Seuss never disappoints and IF I RAN THE CIRCUS is another winner.  This was one of my favorite books as a child and I shared this and all of the other Dr. Seuss books with my son as he grew up.  His first book was Green Eggs and Ham and I remember how proud he was that he could read it to me.
Morris McGurk wants to start his own circus, of course named  Circus McGurkus,  and imagines the acts that will entertain his guests.  Opening in an empty lot behind Sneelock’s store, he decides that all manner of creatures will be involved liked a Wily Walloo that can lasso with his tail and a walrus named Rolf.  Morris goes on to describe in wondrous detail the things that will make his circus special in the way only Dr. Seuss can word it.
This is a perfect book for young readers when it is time to take on paragraphs after short sentences.  It is easy to learn new words because of the rhythmic patterns that make sounding out them out simple.  Parents can’t go wrong with Dr. Seuss.

    I don’t remember what my first Dr. Seuss book was but Green Eggs & Ham was what we read most often! My name is Sam and I got my nickname from that book!

    I have always enjoyed the Dr. Suess books, my boys would read them over and over. Now my grandchildren have started reading them. I sure we would all enjoy the new one. Thanks for this opportunity.

  3. traci16 says

    Love ALL of these wonderful books, but if I had to chose a favorite, it would be Green Eggs and Ham. What child doesn’t live these books(or big child at heart for that matter)!!!

  4. tracee says

    I have no idea which one was my first. I loved one fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish and green eggs and ham. My dog has a Sneetch toy.
