Get Ready for Read Across America
enjoy reading
Dr. Seuss
books over
and over
again —
they're fun! The rhyming
helps young children develop an
ear for language and encourages
word play. Older kids will learn
important lessons and concepts
without realizing it. Theodore
Geisel’s books are timeless and
Green Eggs and Ham
In this most famous of
cumulative tales, Sam-I-am
insists that this unusual treat is
indeed a yummy snack
to be savored
everywhere and in
every way. Dr. Seuss
created his stories to
encourage children to
read all by themselves,
with simple words and
illustrations that give
clues to their meaning.
Horton Hears a Who!
A city of Whos on a speck of
dust are threatened with
destruction until the smallest
Who of all
helps convince
Horton's friends
that Whos
really exist.
"Think left and
think right and
think low and
think high.
Oh, the Thinks
you can think
up if only you
The Lorax
Fox in Socks
When a fox in
socks meets Knox in a box,
you're sure to get your words
twisted. This book comes with
the following warning: "This is a
book you READ ALOUD to
find out just how smart your
tongue is. The first time you read
it, don't go fast! This Fox is
a tricky fox. He'll try to get
your tongue in trouble."
Oh, the Thinks you can
This book celebrates the
imagination and encourages
readers to think . . . about
Long before "going green" was
mainstream, Dr. Seuss's Lorax
spoke for the trees and warned
of the dangers of disrespecting
the environment. In this
cautionary tale, we learn of the
Once-ler, who came across a
valley of
Truffula Trees
and Brown
and how his
harvesting of
the tufted
trees changed
the landscape
