I love Dr. Seuss books. The imagination and life lessons he always incorporates make his book entertaining to read. ( )
  NaomiJohnston | Sep 26, 2016 |
There are a few reasons I liked the book "Oh, the Thinks You Can Think!" by Dr. Suess. The first reason is that the author used an engaging writing style. Throughout the text he would rhyme real words with nonsense words. A great example of this is in the sentences, "You can think about gloves. You can think about snuvs. You can think a long time about snuvs and their gloves." Through this writing style he was able to keep me fully engaged and thinking about the text. The second reason I enjoyed this story was because of the illustrations used throughout the book. For example, the quote I discussed above about the imaginary snuv. The snuv was illustrated on the same page as the text, giving the reader an idea of what a snuv could possibly look like. This feature not only enhanced the readers knowledge about the make-believe character but also, fit the style of the written text. The last reason I liked this book was because it not only included words easy enough for young readers to recognize but also, included nonsense words that made me think. " You can think about Schlopp. Schlopp. Schlopp. Beautiful schlopp. Beautiful schlopp with a cherry on top." When I first read this I thought Schlopp was a person. However, through the text and illustrations I figured out that schlopp was a type of sundae. I think that the 'big idea' of this children's book is to make young readers minds think, and realize that there are many things in this world they don't yet know about or even understand. ( )

This is a really cute book that uses rhyme to invoke thinking. I’m not sure how this book can be used in classroom other then introduce rhyme, invoke thinking and creativity, and the use of imagination. ( )

I picked this book because I had never read this Dr.Seuss book and was interested in reading it. For this book I would have students write and draw whatever they can think up. ( )
