It doesn't matter how old I get, but I can't help but being charmed by the Dr. Seuss books. This one in particular is extra endearing because it's all about the joys of reading. Seuss makes an excellent and whimsical thesis that one must keep at least one eye open so that one is able to fully appreciate the full range of knowledge that books can offer us, and as a fellow book addict I can 100% get behind his message! This book is also very well designed to entice early readers, as many of Dr. Seuss' beginner books are, because it artfully combines tongue in cheek language that is easy to read, entertaining illustrations to fully engage readers, and absolutely hilarious rhymes that I'm sure keep young readers wanting to puzzle out what's coming next. The Cat in the Hat may have been the start of the beginner books from Dr. Suess, but I much prefer the randomly whimsical story (or lack there of, honestly) and far superior illustrations of this book!

Dr. Seuss is a legend. No one can change my mind. I think just about any Dr. Seuss book is a good read aloud choice, but "I Can Read with my Eyes Shut" is a particularly amazing one! The book mocks reading in a silly way, with a fun story line and bright colors for the kids. In the end however, it highlights how reading can be fun! I think this is a great read aloud book because it can help kids who are nervous when they read feel more comfortable, and relate to the book

An easy reader that can help kids learn colors, letters, and numbers in a fun way with the Cat in the Hat. Something for younger kids to read by themselves when they are first starting out.

Fairly typical Dr Seuss book. Not one of the stand-out ones, but perfectly okay.

My child likes I Can Read With My Eyes Shut! I don't. The rhymes are difficult to guess, the messages are incredibly blurry, and the mix of real and fantastical is difficult to sort out for a young reader. Dr. Seuss wrote better children's books than this one. ( )
