Hop on Pop Book & CD (Book and 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. Review
Poor, long-suffering Dad deserves a little lift every once in a while, and who better to boost than Dr. Seuss? In this funky pop-up adaptation of the classic Hop on Pop, kids do their best to perk up Pop after a bad day. The furry yellow Seuss-critters know "it's best not to HOP on POP," but "we like to hop. / We like to hop / on top of Pop. / STOP!" Other, more human-looking children give their fathers gifts, such as "a set of Slim Jim Swim Fins" (pink, three-toed marvels), violin serenades, and for the man who has everything... "a Bright Dwight Bird-Flight Night-Sight Light." Clever paper engineering livens up this six-spread volume (not that anything by Dr. Seuss ever needed enlivening). Young readers will love making the gleeful characters hop on pop over and over, and will laugh to see the walrus (another less-than-welcome gift) licking one poor daddy's ear. It's hard to say who will enjoy this more: fathers or their well-meaning little urchins. (Ages 3 to 7) --Emilie Coulter
