A great rhyming book the incredible Dr. Seuss that goes through many characters doing simple things that involves simple rhymes.

This book could be use to help develop phonemic awareness in very young children, especially in helping develop awareness of onset and rhime.

Hop on Pop is known as one of the easier books by Dr. Seuss. There are only a few words on each page but the illustrations are still large and bright to interest children. The first page with text, for example, is, ‘UP PUP Pup is up.” This book is much simpler for children to read and for those that are beginning to read. These are simple words that rhyme and are only one syllable. These small words make children feel more confident when they are reading and they are more likely to enjoy reading. In my opinion, Hop on Pop is great to first read to children and have them repeat back to you what was read to them. I would like to think that this book by Dr. Seuss organizes his books to appeal children and keep them interested throughout the entire book. This book I would rate a nine and a great read for children. ( )

I enjoyed this book mainly for it rhyming and how the illustration go hand and in hand with the text. The limited and sometimes broken text is perfect for begining readers who will not be able to read long sentences but will instead use a mixture of recognizable words and strong illustrations to figure out whats happening in the book. Some of the simple yet effective text is on pg. 44 where there is only your words, "Pup Up. Brown Down." The placement of this text allows the reader to connect to the illustration and comprehend the story. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 039480029X, Hardcover)

First published in 1963, Hop on Pop remains a perennial favorite when it comes to teaching kids to read. Here, as in most of his extensive body of work, Dr. Seuss creates uncomplicated, monosyllabic rhymes to foster learning and inspire children to read. But what was radical about this little book at the time of publication (and what makes it still compelling today) is Seuss's departure from the traditionally dull pictures and sentences used in reading primers. In contrast, the illustrations here are wild and wonderful, and the accompanying language, while simple, is delightfully silly. For example, the rhyme "THREE TREE / Three fish in a tree / Fish in a tree? / How can that be?" is brought to life with a trio of plump, self-satisfied fish perched atop globular branches as two stymied hybrid dog-rabbit-humanoids look on in consternation. Hop on Pop does much more than teach children the basics of word construction, it also introduces them to the incomparable pleasure of reading a book. (Ages Baby to Preschooler)

Pairs of rhyming words are introduced and used in simple sentences, such as "Day. Play. We play all day. Night. Fight. We fight all night."
