A book sure to please all your Dr. Seuss needs

My mom bought this "Your Favorite Seuss. A bakers's dozen by the one and only Dr. Seuss" book and has it on her coffee table. I discovered it and read three or four stories right away. I was so excited to find one of my all time favorite Dr. Seuss stories "McElligot's Pool inside I could hardly stand it. I LOVE that story. I once had the book, but sadly I don't know where it is today.

You can find it for various prices, $34 being the highest, $20 being the lowest. Check Amazon and Alibris for best prices. It's a hardback, well made, with lovely color pictures.

Inside the book are 12 of Dr. Seuss' most popular stories. Even more, there are plenty of details, explanation and discussion on each story, and telling us what the moral of the story was, in case we missed it. I think this is a gem for any Seuss fan. It gives you all the best in one place. I recommend:

McElligot's Pool
Yertle the Turtle
Green Eggs and Ham
How the Grinch StoleChristmas

Oh, the Places You'll Go


Don't take my word, check it out for yourself
This isn't a book to sit long on a shelf

Gather your friends, and the young and the old

and tell them soon a great tale will unfold

About turtles, and sneetches and a big cat who teaches

And Grinch's and Sam and his Green Eggs and Ham

There's so much to learn and places to explore

Why, you'll certainly go somewhere you've never been before!

And you'll giggle and snort and have to confess
That the world of Seuss is simply the best

So pull on your hat and grab both of your shoes

And line up or run in ones, threes or twos

For a wonderful ride on the Express Train of Fun

For an unforgettable journey when all's said and done!

Enjoy the book!

    Mr. Fab: That would be a very gross. :)

    Catch: Are you kidding? My mom turned me and my sister on to those books. My mom loved them. I wish I still had them too. Man, now I wish you hadn't brought it up, lol, I want those books back!

    Glitter: I love it. I think it's great for kids and adults because it gives you backstory on the stories.

    EH: LOVED IT! of course, I love everything Buffy. I knew he had this comic out and also I have yet to get "Fray" but I can only dream of a Buffy Season 8 in written or TV form. Sigh.
