This audio book is a collection of lost treasures of Dr. Seuss’s rhyming stories. The stories were not published as a book but in magazines throughout the years and were collected by Seuss scholar Charles D. Cohen. Stories included in this audio book are: “The Bippolo Seed,” “The Rabbit, the Bear, and the Zinniga-Zanniga,” “Gustav, the Goldfish,” “Tadd and Todd,” “Steak for Supper,” “The Strange Shirt Spot,” and “The Great Henry McBride.” All seven stories are read by seven well-known stars. These stories are read in a rhythmic way, just like Dr. Seuss wrote them.

Each story is read by one reader and all the readers play their role as narrator as well as characters. They were changing their voices to differentiate between the characters and by doing so, it makes it easy for listeners to figure out which character is saying what line. The readers brought the story to life by reading them so convincingly and with such passion. Their pacing is perfect, not too slow, not too fast, and will get the readers listening.

These stories represent Dr. Seuss very well. Some of the stories have moral lesson such as about greed, some of them showcase Seuss’ rhyming skills, and some of them are adventure stories. Listeners are not told what type of story they are but as they listen, they might be able to find out. This audio book is a must have for all children’s library and will become a classic, like all Dr. Seuss’ books. ( )
