Blog Tour & Giveaway: Classic Dr. Seuss



ABOUT WHAT PET SHOULD I GET?
In the Fall of 2013, an original manuscript with accompanying sketches by DrSeuss, aka Ted Geisel, was discovered in the La Jolla, California home of the late beloved children’s author. That complete manuscript was for the picture book, WHAT PET SHOULD I GET?, and will be published by Random House Children’s Books on July 28, 2015. It is the first original new DrSeuss book since the publication of the last book of DrSeuss’s career, Oh, the Places You’ll Go! in 1990. WHAT PET SHOULD I GET? captures the excitement of a classic childhood moment—choosing a pet—and features the brother and sister characters that DrSeuss drew inOne Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.


ABOUT DRSEUSS
Theodor “Seuss” Geisel is one of the most beloved children’s book authors of all time. His long list of awards includes Caldecott Honors for McElligot’s PoolIf I Ran the Zoo, and Bartholomew and the Oobleck, the Pulitzer Prize, and eight honorary doctorates. Works based on his original stories have won three Oscars, three Emmys, three Grammys and a Peabody. Geisel wrote and illustrated 45 books during his lifetime, and his books have sold more than 650 million copies worldwide. Though Theodor Geisel died on September 24, 1991, DrSeuss lives on, inspiring generations of children of all ages to explore the joys of reading.

About Dr. Seuss's ABCs:
Arguably the most entertaining alphabet book ever written, this classic Beginner Book by Dr. Seuss is perfect for children learning their ABCs. Featuring a fantastic cast of zany characters—from Aunt Annie’s alligator to the Zizzer-Zazzer-Zuzz, with a lazy lion licking a lollipop and an ostrich oiling an orange owl—Dr. Seuss’s ABC is a must-have for every young child’s library.

Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.


Review:
I grew up on Dr. Seuss tales. An avid reader since the beginning, I could always be found with a book in hand as a kid (or a picture book). Revisiting Dr. Seuss's ABCs was a great way to reacquaint myself with his memorable works.

I snatched up my 2 1/2 year old niece for this and read the book to her. She already has a love of books and cuddle in my lap, helping me turn pages and point out letters and animals. When we reached the end, she was ready to start again.

That's the power of Seuss; these books transcend one generation and can be enjoyed by all for years to come.
