Dr. Seuss Classic Celebratory Tour!

Dr. Seuss Classic Celebratory Tour!

I received this galley in consideration for an honest review.

Dr. Seuss Classic Celebratory Tour!Oh Say Can You Say by Dr. Seuss

five-stars

Tongue twisters abound in this classic Dr. Seuss Beginner Book!

"Bed Spreaders spread spreads on beds.

Bread Spreaders spread butter on breads.

And that Bed Spreader better watch out how he's spreading . . .

or that Bread Spreader's sure going to butter his bedding."

This riotous collection weaves together a wonderment of words designed to twist the lips. Wordsmiths and beginning readers will love Oh Say Can You Say? and treasure tackling these tangled tongue teasers.

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.

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen this particular Dr. Seuss book, so I sat down with my kids and we tried our hand at saying a few of these tongue twisters.  Oh Say Can You Say? is good for early readers and, in our case, it ended up making us laugh as we failed to say some of these poems.  It was fun for everyone!

 

 

Random House is allowing me give away a copy of the newly discovered Dr. Seuss book, What Pet Should I Get? which is available today.

Dr. Seuss Classic Celebratory Tour!What Pet Should I Get? by Dr. Seuss
Published by Random House on July 28, 2015
Goodreads

In the Fall of 2013, an original manuscript with accompanying sketches by Dr. Seuss, aka Ted Geisel, was discovered in the La Jolla, California home of the late beloved children’s author. That complete manuscript was for the picture book, WHAT PET SHOULD I GET?, and will be published by Random House Children’s Books on July 28, 2015. It is the first original new Dr. Seuss book since the publication of the last book of Dr. Seuss’s career, Oh, the Places You’ll Go! in 1990. WHAT PET SHOULD I GET? captures the excitement of a classic childhood moment—choosing a pet—and features the brother and sister characters that Dr. Seuss drew in One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.

    Love Green Eggs and Ham because I have a boy named Sam! (Who does not like green eggs or any eggs because he’s allergic!)

  2. I must also add that I am super excited about an idea I saw on Pinterest. I have 2 copies of Oh the Places You’ll Go for my Littles (9 and 6). I have their teachers write something in the book each year at the end of the school year. The book will be a high school graduation present. For whatever reason though I seem to forget it each year….fortunately the teachers haven’t moved away and I get it signed when school starts up again. In the words of my six-year old daughter “silly mama”.

    The kids in my daycare love ALL Dr. Seuss books!! We read at least one a day and they never get tired of them 🙂

    I loved reading Dr. Seuss books to my kids. My favorites are A Wicket in My Pocket and Mr. Brown Says Moo, Can You.

  5. I absolutely LOVE dr. Seuss! when I heard a new book from him was found, I was beyond excited! I think this blog tour idea is awesome. I am having so much fun re-visiting all of my favorite books from him. I think everyone needs to read dr. Seuss. I think my favorite (which is a really hard question by the way!) is the lorax

    Great post! Thanks for sharing 😉
