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. ( )

Dr.Suess books are good for beginning readers. The sentences are easy to read and they will find the rhyming enjoyable. This delightfully silly book provides words that most children will recognize and is sure to be something they love to read. ( )

I enjoyed reading this book for a variety of reasons. The rhyming scheme grabs the reader’s attention and draws the reader into the story. It created a rhythm and flow to the text that makes the story easy for the reader to follow. The illustrations in this book complimented the written text well and overall enhanced the story. They enriched the characterization of the characters in the text by showing their physical appearance and actions in great detail. In addition, the illustrations are all large with vivid and bold colors. The main idea of this story reflects the power of imagination. The author encourages the reader to use their imagination by showing the variety of places, creatures, and adventures that he imagined. For example he states, “You can think of any think that you wish. Think a race on a horse on ball with fish.” This helps to show that there is no limit to the things that someone can imagine. ( )
