The Best Dr Seuss Books To Read With Your Child

The Best Dr Seuss Books To Read With Your Child

The 2nd of March is the day we celebrate Dr Seuss Birthday. Theodore Seuss Geisel was an American writer, cartoonist, animator, book publisher, and artist. He wrote many fantastic and much loved children’s books under the pen name Dr Seuss and his books are as popular today as they were when created.

One of my favourite Dr Seuss Books is Cat In The Hat. We love the story of the Cat in the hat and thing one and thing two. I also love Green Eggs and Ham and The Grinch Who stole Christmas. I recall going to the library as a little girl and reading Dr Seuss Books with my mum.

As a Mother I am now sharing my love of Dr Seuss with my daughter and recently I shared a fantastic Cat In the Hat Cooking Tutorial. I’m sure you will love it.

    I love all of these Dr. Seuss books and would be hard pressed to pick a single favourite! The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas and One Fish, Two Fish are some of the ones I love the most x

    Don’t think i ever read any of the books, but didn’t know he did cat in the hat or the grinch x

  5. February 27, 2017 / 7:28 pm

    Do you know, I’m ashamed to say I’ve not read any of the books. Perfect excuse to get them when my son is old enough though!

  6. February 27, 2017 / 9:28 pm

    I’ve got to confess I never read any as a child so it would be nice to read them when I have kids.

    We do love the Cat in the Hat it is a great book, we also loved the movie that was good too. The book inspired sweets look like a great idea!

    Brilliant sweet treats! The colours are spot on. We find Dr Seuss books hit and miss sometimes – Cat in the Hat is always a winner though.
