Reading Corner: Dr Seuss Books and a Giveaway!!

May 28, 2016
For some, Dr Seuss was a genius and in the middle of his works he hides truths…

I love him for his brilliant mind, works and it’s hilarious craziness and nonsense!

Read more about it and enter the giveaway!





Dr Seuss is know for a lot of works, movies, audiobook, merchandise, etc.

But do you really know that a lot of things you started to hear in nursery rhymes was actually invented by him?

Life Magazine published an article in 1954 about why the children weren’t learning to read in school because their books were too boring.
Dr Seuss editor challenged him to write a book using 250 words that children use most, the result was The Cat in the Hat with only 236 words.
His next challenge was using 50 words, and Green Eggs and Ham was written.

His Trademark is “no straight lines” so you have the rhymes.

Cool fact about Dr Seuss: He drove a car with a GRINCH License plate!


Other example, he was the person who invented the word “NERD”, and it was used for the first time in his book If I ran a Zoo, in which one of the animals calls Nerd, a grumpy humanoid with unruly hair and sideburns and wear a black
t-shirt.




Some reasons to love Dr Seuss Books:

  • They Help developing Reading Skills (learning through repetition)

  • They are perfect for reluctant readers (80 to 90% of the words give a confidence boost and engage children)
  • They teach Life Lessons (responsibility, humor, friendship, treating people with respect, self-confidence)
  • They are great Read Aloud
  • They Appeal to every age (as an adult I love them)




Today, on the reading corner, I am showing you 2 books from Dr Seuss (You know… he wasn’t really a doctor…) that you must have heard or even read.

Worth to re-read again and let your child play with it’s nonsense and rhymes.





One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish

One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish is a 1960 children’s book by Dr. Seuss. 

It is a simple rhyming book for beginning readers, with a freewheeling plot about a boy and a girl named Jay and Kay and the many amazing creatures they have for friends and pets. 


Interspersed are some rather surreal and unrelated skits, such as a man named Ned whose feet stick out from his bed, and a creature who has a bird in his ear.






Green Eggs and Ham

Written after One Fish Two Fish book, Green Eggs and Ham is a best-selling and critically acclaimed children’s book by Dr. Seuss, first published on August 12, 1960. As of 2001, according to Publishers Weekly, it was the fourth best-selling English-language children’s book of all time.

A character known as “Sam-I-Am” pesters an unnamed character to eat a dish of green eggs and ham. The unnamed character refuses, responding, “I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them, Sam-I-Am.” He continues to repeat this as Sam constantly follows him. Finally, the unnamed character gives in to Sam’s pestering and samples the green eggs and ham, which he does like after all and happily responds, “I do so like green eggs and ham. Thank you. Thank you, Sam-I-Am.”

I can’t read this without singing it!

Green Eggs and Ham is one of Seuss’s “Beginner Books”, written in a very simple vocabulary for beginning readers. The vocabulary of the text consists of just 50 different words.

If your child is starting to read, practise with him with these books.
They are brilliantly written with few words, like keywords, so your child can have a little notion on what a rhyme is and still is so ear catching that he/she will memorise some of the words or phrases.


Excellent reading!





And…. I have a Green Eggs and Ham book to give!!

    I am not saying your information isn’t good., however suppose you
    added a post title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Reading Corner: Dr Seuss

    You ought to look at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create news titles to

    a related pic or two to grab readers interested about
    what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would bring your
