My absolute favorite only because tongue twisters are so much fun! ( )

Typical Dr. Seuss fare. It wasn't one of my favourites as a kid, but I liked it more than most of the Dr Seuss books. ( )

great for younger grades, simple words with a rthym, could be pulled apart for many different reading or writing lessons. ( )

This is an amazing classic book for younger students to practice reading skills. It is also really fun for them to try the tongue twisters. I also like the ending, Knox showed Fox a fun game for sure. ( )

As we mouth his refusals, we ourselves conform: we, readers of books aloud, have pronounced exactly the tongue-tying utterance that Knox declares himself unable, or unwilling, to say.
