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.
