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.

The possibilities are endless in Dr. Seuss’s classic Beginner Book! Young readers will delight in Oh, the Thinks You Can Think! which celebrates the imagination and encourages young readers to think . . . about thinking! “Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the Thinks you can think up if only you try.” Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.

Dr. Seuss has funny books and strange books too. This one was very strange and I really didn't like it and depending on what age group you use this with, children may be confused about what the book is about. ( )

I love Dr. Seuss books. The imagination and life lessons he always incorporates make his book entertaining to read. ( )
