This book as all of Dr. Seuss books is a book full of rhymes. It can be used in my future classroom to teach what rhyming words are and how to listen for rhyming words but it can also be used to show students how to think outside of the box. If I had an assignment on a creative writing piece this would be a good entry book to give students crazy ideas to think about when they need to brainstorm there writing. ( )

I love Dr. Seuss books because they are very colorful, fun to read, and fun to look at. The words are also fun to read out loud. These books are great for connecting sounds within letters and repetition of sounds can help a child improve their skills.

This is a great tongue twister by Dr. Seuss, “Oh, the Thinks You Can Think.” I enjoyed reading this book because it was a challenge to read smoothly through the book, and I am a junior in college. This story is a great example of how to activate creativity by using your imagination and thinking. The language in the book is very descriptive and written with a rhyme scheme. There are a lot of sight words used that children at a young age are being introduced to. The illustrations in the book are engaging. They cover the entire page which is large and colorful. The story is fiction because of the things thought of in the book are made up and have no real characteristic to an actual human or animal. But like I mentioned this is a great example of exaggeration and using imagination. A good example of creating a creature would be on page four and five. The illustration is referred to as a “guff” and is being walked by his owner by what seems to be his tail. This book is among a great collection of books for children and I would rate this book 9/10.
