HOP ON POP BOOK & CD
Pulitzer Prize-winning Dr. Seuss’s classic Beginner Book is now part of a book and audio CD package, with word-for-word storytelling by David Hyde Pierce.
 
First published in 1963, the “simplest Seuss for youngest use” remains a perennial favorite when it comes to teaching kids to read. The author creates uncomplicated, monosyllabic rhymes to foster learning and inspire children to read. See Red and Ned and Ted and Ed in a bed. And giggle as Pat sits on a hat and on a cat and on a bat . . . but a cactus? Pat must NOT sit on that! The illustrations are wild and the language is delightfully silly. This classic makes an ideal gift for Seuss fans and is an especially good way to show Pop some love on Father’s Day!
 
“Combines phonics and word recognition, making sounds and letters recognizable. Highly recommended.”—School Library Journal (starred)

Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meanings.
Amazon.com Review
First published in 1963, Hop on Pop remains a perennial favorite when it comes to teaching kids to read. Here, as in most of his extensive body of work, Dr. Seuss creates uncomplicated, monosyllabic rhymes to foster learning and inspire children to read. But what was radical about this little book at the time of publication (and what makes it still compelling today) is Seuss's departure from the traditionally dull pictures and sentences used in reading primers. In contrast, the illustrations here are wild and wonderful, and the accompanying language, while simple, is delightfully silly. For example, the rhyme "THREE TREE / Three fish in a tree / Fish in a tree? / How can that be?" is brought to life with a trio of plump, self-satisfied fish perched atop globular branches as two stymied hybrid dog-rabbit-humanoids look on in consternation. Hop on Pop does much more than teach children the basics of word construction, it also introduces them to the incomparable pleasure of reading a book. (Ages Baby to Preschooler)
