Dr. Seuss is famous the world over for helping children learn to read. But now even pre-readers can join in the fun and benefit from his wacky rhymes and crazy pictures. Aimed at tiny tots and toddlers from aged two upwards, this delightful series of board books is designed to teach young children simple concepts from colours and numbers to opposites and animals. Adapted from some of Dr. Seuss' most popular books, including Fox in Socks, The Foot Book and One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, each title contains bright, bold illustrations and simple Seussian rhymes, with a flap on every spread to add to the fun!
Theodor Seuss Geisel -- better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss -- was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children's books, and his first book -- And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street -- was published in 1937. His greatest claim to fame was the one and only The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books.
