Hop on Pop is a really good book for kids who are starting to learn about CVC words and long and short vowel sounds. Every page is filled with those types of words as well as rhymes. The book also progresses by getting harder as it goes on. For example, the first pages are words like "pup" and "cup." The last few pages are words like "Tree" and "Three." The kids are introduced to the short vowels in CVC words and later introduced to the longer words with long vowel sounds. The main point of this book is to get young children familiar with CVC words, even if they are not learning about them yet. Every page has pictures of the words being demonstrated so that the kids will have something to relate it to. This book is wonderful because the kids will be able to refer back to it at any age when learning about CVC words throughout their education. ( )

I have been a fan of Dr. Seuss books since I first started reading them. This book, like the others, was fun to read aloud to children. I could see how engaged they were as I read. The rhyming and funny illustrations kept the children smiling and wanting more.
This book is great for introducing students to rhyming and showing them how to put sentences together. The simplicity of it will make it much easier to follow along. I highly recommend reading multiple Dr. Seuss books if you instead of just choosing one. ( )

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."
