This isn't a book with a plot but simply a collection of tongue twisters. There's the traditional Seussical flair to the wording and illustrations, but after a while the twisters start to just sound like gibberish. Admittedly, I am not a fan of tongue twisters so I'm not really the ideal audience for this book. If you are a fan of tongue twisters, then this book is definitely for you. If you're a Dr. Seuss fan, you might also enjoy this book, although it's worth noting this title is more in line with a nonsensical Seuss book like Hop on Pop than with a Seuss book with a more traditional storyline such as The Lorax or How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Difficult book to read out loud, really lives up to the title "Oh Say Can you Say?". There is no official storyline of the book, but is still interesting to read. The book contains several tongue twisters on each page challenging the reader to pronounce them. ( )

This delightful book of tongue twisters was the absolute favorite of my son when he was little. I still from time to time say the tongue twisters just to keep in practice, and prove I still can. The wit and imagination of Dr. Seuss shines through every line, particularly so in the one about the East Beast and the West Beast. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0394842553, Hardcover)

Caution: for advanced storytellers only! The tongue twisters in this book will have your children laughing for hours--and that laughter just might be directed at you! Mixing genuine words with classic Seuss vocabulary, Oh Say Can You Say gets trickier with every page. You'll start off easy with this cautionary limerick:
Said a book-reading parrot named Hooey, "The words in this book are all phooey. When you join them your lips will make slips and back flips, and your tongue may end up in Saint Looey!"
Don't say he didn't warn you. For a truly inspired family gigglefest, this is the top of the charts. (Preschool to early reader) --Jill Lightner
