  1. Hmm I already entered a blog comment but that raffle copter thing didn’t take my entry… mour favorite is green eggs and ham!

  2. I always loved Hop on Pop. To me, each page was a different little story that I could read all by myself.

    1. Hop on Pop always sat right next to Green Eggs and Ham on my book shelf growing up. It’s one of my favorites too.

  3. My favorite Dr. Seuss book? Hmmmmmmmm, so many to choose from! But I think I can say, There’s a Wocket in My Pocket and How the Grinch Stole Christmas with Green Eggs and Ham a close 2nd!

  4. Oh my, I can’t pick only one favorite. I LOVE them all. I also like the Dr. Seuss plush characters that Kohl’s Cares program promotes. I’m such a fan of Dr. Seuss anything and everything steals my heart.

  5. What a great giveaway! Dr. Suess is wonderful. I was in fact just noticing that we are missing our copy of Green Eggs and Ham–my son’s favorite!

  6. Oh, the Places You’ll Go was given to me by my family upon high school graduation. Inside, each of my family members wrote me a personal send off and wishes. It’s still one of my favorites because of the special messages inside my copy—even after this book knocked mine off the NY Times Bestseller list when graduation time rolled around…Even after all these years, that Dr. Suess still can strut his stuff (and sell lots of books!). A (very!) nice giveaway, Valerie! -heather

    1. What a wonderful memories Heather. How does it feel to have Dr. Seuss knock you off the NY Times Bestseller list? That’s an incredible memory in itself. I still love reading Dr. Seuss after all these years. It never gets old. Thanks for sharing your special memories with us here.

  7. My favorite book is either Hop on Pop or One Fish, Two Fish- oh but I do love so many of them!

    1. It’s hard to pick sometimes isn’t it? Both choices are greatly loved over here. Good Luck.

    1. Who could have thought a “Save the Planet” message could rhyme. He was just a genius. Good luck to you.

  8. I love Dr. Seuss!! My first and favorite was THE B BOOK….thought it was amazing (as a kid) that a whole book was written after my initials!

    1. How fun. I wonder what a “V” book would have been like? Good luck in the giveaway

  9. amazing giveaway! thanks for sharing another wonderful treasury. i love reciting the funky ABC book.

  10. It’s a tough choice but I’m going to go with “One Fish Two Fish”. “I can lick 30 tigers today” is my son’s favourite today.

  11. I love all of them but I guess I’d have to say my favorite is Horton Hatches an Egg.

  12. His books are really well written. It’s a great giveaway. I don’t know if it’s open to international readers of your blog, though. In case it is, please, count me in. Best regards from Barcelona, Spain,

    1. Hi Marta! Wow that’s incredible that your writing us from Spain. The giveaway is open to all. The Cat in the Hat is one of our favorites too. Thanks for stopping by and good luck.

  14. I love Dr. Seuss, my personal favorite is The Lorax – I used to teach environmental law and have a print of the Lorax speaking for the trees on my wall.

  15. My favorite Dr. Suess book is a tie between “Green Eggs and Ham” and “Oh The Places You’ll Go” I actually LOVE them all!!

  16. My favorite Dr. Seuss book as an adult is “The Lorax”. We might even break down and bring our lil’ man to see it as his first big screen movie in March. We gave bookmark valentines to family and friends of the Lorax…a lil’ nudge with love!

  17. We are huge Dr. Seuss fans in this house and check out a ton of his books from our library this time of year for his big birthday celebration 🙂

  18. Horton Hears a Who. Favorite book because my youngest daughter insists upon this book at bedtime. She also can’t wait to read (she’s 3) she says so she can read it to me.

  19. The favorite at our house is Fox in Socks. My boys, aged 3, 5 and 10, and I laugh so hard at the tongue twisters we can barely read it! My favorite part is ” When beetles battle beetles in a puddle paddle battle and the beetle battle puddle is a puddle in a bottle…they call this a tweetle beetle bottle puddle paddle battle muddle.”

  20. My girls favorite is Fox in the sock, they asks daddy to read almost every night before bedtime.

  21. We just love “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street!” It’s so true of myself (even MANY years later) and the children always laugh at the ending.
    And many others

  22. I love The Cat in the Hat because it was the first book I learned to read when I was 4 yrs. old!

  23. We’re starting to homeschool in the fall and this would be a great start to our “school” library! 🙂 Green Eggs and Ham was the first book my daughter read on her own!!

  28. Dr. Seuss has always been a favorite. Not only did I read his books as a child, but I also had an LP that had Green Eggs and Ham and Fox in Socks on it. I would play it over and over until I had it memorized and could say every word along with the narrator!

We are a school with a growing population of students on free or reduced lunch (40 %).

    Happy Birthday, RIP

  103. Hop on Pop was a favorite of mine growing up–I’m using it in my speech therapy sessions tomorrow!

  104. “I know up on top you are seeing great sights, but down on the bottom we, too, should have rights!”

  105. So sad I’m a day late. I just found you while googling Dr. Seuss and his books ;-). The books are not well known in Germany but what I’ve seen so far is really cute. My husband and I are fluent in English and have always read English books to our 3 children (ages 3, 6 & 8), but since as non native speakers we are not familiar with all the fun classic children’s books, we have missed out on Dr. Seuss so far. I was researching the books so we could buy one or the other for our family, so this whole collection would have been perfect for us ;-). Well, I guess we’ll start out with one book then ;-). Do you have a suggestion with which to start first? I would really appreciate your recommendation. What an awesome giveaway! Happy Dr. Seuss B-day/National Read Across America day – maks 🙂

    1. Guten Tag !!! and welcome. I speak German and have a degree in it as well. It’s so wonderful you stopped by. Well my first suggestion is Green Eggs and Ham. It was the very first book I learned how to read by myself so I’m very partial to this book. From there I would try Hop on Pop. It has easy words that your children will be able to understand and even read themselves. I love the story “The Lorax” but it might be a little difficult for your children to understand just yet as there are many invented words that even native speakers of English wonder about but the story is fantastic.

      Please feel free to have a look around this site. Our booklists are wonderful resources of classic and favorite children’s books. Many of the books we’ve reviewed and offered up many activities to go along with them. Please come back again as we have these sorts of giveaways often. Enjoy Dr. Seuss and Happy Reading.


      1. Thank you so much Valarie. Have subscribed to and explored your website in the meantime ;-). So happy to have found you! Will definitely be back often. Ganz liebe Gruesse aus Deutschland – maks 🙂

  106. I am interning in a first grade class. I am so excited to teach my 2 week unit plan on Dr. Seuss. Winning these books would be a wonderful addition to my beginning collection. Good luck to us all!

    1. That was my favorite book as a kid, in fact it was the first book I learned how to read.

  107. This is an awesome thing you are doing. You are giving away opportunities for someone to read. That is truly amazing. Kids today are all about gaming and this is a great way to get them reading again.
