I guess kids are meant to find this book of tongue twisters challenging, but honestly I've seen much better from Seuss. His language is usually what sets him apart, but made up words don't really add to tongue twisters as much as they just confuse. At least Seuss's illustrations were decent, otherwise I would have to write this book off entirely as not deserving to be part of the Seuss oeuvre! ( )

Love! So many fun and challenging tongue twisting rhymes.

Beginning readers are sure to giggle over the absurd rhyming tongue twisters in this hilarious vocabulary-building book. Grown-ups are encouraged to read these rhymes aloud to their young readers and prepare themselves for non-stop laughter as the youngsters learn that reading can be more fun than they ever imagined.

Highly recommended. ( )

Who doesn't love a good tongue twister? Especially one written by Dr. Seuss!

Another great book from my childhood revisited as I organize my bookshelves. ( )

For Lee Groo, the Enunciator
First words
Said a book-reading parrot named Hooey,
"The words in this book are all phooey.
When you say them, your lips
will make slips and back flips
and your tongue may end up in Saint Looey!"
