From dreamy thoughts about colour to fantastic notions on left and right, this surreal book encourages young children to let their imaginations run riot and think up all kinds of weird and wonderful things. This delightful Beginner Book now joins 16 of Dr. Seuss' most popular works in the Classic Collection series, which also contains The Cat in the Hat, Fox in Socks and Green Eggs and Ham. With Dr. Seuss' usual measure of riotous rhyme and wacky illustrations it will encourage even the most reluctant child to learn to read.With his unique combination of hilarious stories, zany pictures and riotous rhymes, Dr. Seuss has been delighting young children and helping them learn to read for over fifty years. Creator of the wonderfully anarchic Cat in the Hat, and ranking among the UK's top ten favourite children's authors, Seuss is firmly established as a global best-seller, with nearly half a million books sold worldwide. This delightful book forms part of the third stage in HarperCollins' major Dr. Seuss rebrand programme. With the relaunch of six more titles in January 2004, such all-time favourites as The Lorax, The Foot Book and Yertle the Turtle boast bright new covers that incorporate much needed guidance on reading levels: Blue Back Books are for parents to share with young children, Green Back Books are for budding readers to tackle on their own, and Yellow Back Books are for older, more fluent readers to enjoy. Oh the Thinks You Can Think! belongs to the Green Back Book range.

  • I love every single Dr. Seuss book written but I think this is one of my favorites because it opens up the possibilities and the impossibilities. Seuss understands that there is no end or limits to imagination. I like to apply this to a child's future. It is inspiring.

  • This is largely a nonsense book, of course - most of what Seuss gives as examples are his classic made-up creatures. Bloogs blowing by, and a Rink-Rinker-Fink.But what a nonsense book! It's a lot of fun to read and talk about after. It may not be the most famous Seuss book, but it's certainly one of the best.

  • Dr. Seuss shows the importance of imagination and thinking. This book shows that you can think about anything, even things that are not real. The book says to think about schlopp with a cherry on top. The imagination creates unlimited things that can be thought. It mentions how if you try hard you can think about so many things. In the book the characters think in any direction and on any day. Opportunities are endless when it comes to the imagination.

  • The Dr. Seuss book, Oh, the Thinks You Can Think!, is a counterpart to the graduation favorite, Oh, the Places You’ll Go! Like that other, more recognizable text, Oh, the Thinks You Can Think! details the endless possibilities that await us in our lives and reminds us that anything is possible if we use our imagination. As is par for the course with Dr. Seuss, there are a variety of made-up creatures (guffs, snuvs, etc.) whose names and appearances are sensationally silly and will undoubtedly entertain young children. The artwork is archetypal Dr. Seuss, with characters that will remind readers of the Grinch, Horton the elephant, and the Lorax; and, as is usual with Dr. Seuss, the images can be somewhat frightening or disconcerting for younger children, so parents should be very considerate of the age and maturity of their children. That being said, the theme of the story is truly remarkable: we should not ever limit our imaginations. Behind all of the silly, made-up language that is typical for Dr. Seuss, there is a timeless message that will be inspiring for children and adults alike.Citation:Dr. Seuss.
