On its own terms, as a young children's "beginning to read" book, this rates 5 stars.<br/><br/>I read it numerous times to my sons when they were little and it was always a firm favourite. Great for pre-readers, too, as the alliteration and rhymes make it eminently memorizable after a couple of reads, so the little ones know what's coming and can join in.<br/><br/>One of the many Dr Seuss books that give me a warm, nostalgic glow, remembering those happy story-times before bed.
This is such a fun book! It is full of tricky tongue-twisters. It is one of my favorite books to read to my boys.
This is my favorite by Seuss. Wait till you get to the page on tweedle beedles. (Not sure about that spelling.)
My daughter and I are big fans of Dr. Seuss and we have most of his books. Fox in Socks is one of our absolute favorites. Seuss pulled out all the stops with this one. The tongue twisting rhymes are challenging every time, but at the same time the story and pictures are just plain fun. We make a contest of it to see if we can read the whole book without making any mistakes and we go as fast as we can. This book is fun from start to finish and is one of our all-time favorite children's books, period.
