I liked this book for two reasons. The first reason is because of it's language. The rhyming is kept very simple and silly, for instance, "Sometimes I feel quite certain there's a jertain in the curtain." Although there are made up words throughout the book, it adds a fun element to learning basic rhymes. The second reason is because of its illustrations. The illustrations are filled with color, and the color tends to fit the mood of that particular page. For instance, when he talks about the "vug under the rug" that he is scared of, the colors consist of dark blues and purple, giving a "spooky" or "dark" feeling. The message of the story is that it doesn't matter if other people believe you; using your imagination can lead to great ideas. ( )

A little boy recounts all the made-up creatures that live in his household items, like a Findow in a window and a Ghair under a chair. This book is fun for talking to kids about rhyming words and for just having a silly read together. However, it's not one of my personal favorites by Dr. Seuss as it lacks any kind of plot or message. ( )

Book description
"There's a Wocket in my Pocket!" is a story written by Dr. Seuss, which means it is another example of a story that makes no sense, but is fun to read. The story is silly that includes rhymes to help add to the silliness. Through this story, children will also practice word identifications, meaning being able to find words that are simple in spelling and sounding. Children will enjoy this story and its made up words.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0394829204, Hardcover)

There's a Wocket in my Pocket is yet another prime catch in the vast sea of delectable Dr. Seuss books. It's difficult to find a Dr. Seuss book one wouldn't recommend highly, and this is no exception. Seuss's simple rhymes are consistently as amusing as they are useful; his books are bastions of creative nonsense that simultaneously encourage the joy of wordplay.

This edition of the 1974 treasure features vibrant full-color illustrations, with the added bonus of a virtually indestructible board-book format. Kids can hunt for the zamp in the lamp, the jertain behind the curtain, even the nooth grush on the toothbrush, and no matter how exuberant their exploring gets, the book will remain intact for the next reading. (Ages 0 to 4)
