I'm not the target audience and I don't have fond memories of reading them as a kid. Although I know I did read them at one point or another. They didn't make a big impression though and rereading - I didn't the impression any better. They're alright. Very weird. Very whacky. But at least most of them rhyme. 2.5 stars. ( )

The book starts off with a little boy asking did you ever feel there’s a Wasket in your Basket. And then the boy explores around the house, finding more rhyming monster-looking creatures. He is happy with most of them. But he wishes some were never there. Finally, he snoozes off with a Zillow on his pillow, hoping he never leaves the house.

Dr. Seuss’ books don’t need an intro. Notably, there’s a wocket in my pocket. It’s silly and, in parts, weird. The illustrations are apt for the text, and this one will surely give you jiggles and chuckles.
Pick this book if you are a fan of Dr. Seuss’ books.

Great for storytime with older kiddos (4-5s). They loved coming up with their own goofy rhymes. ( )
