# Making Reading Fun with Dr. Suess.

Put your hands up if you love Dr. Suess! Who doesn’t right. Surely reading Dr. Suess as a child is a right of passage, I loved reading them as a kid and still love them as an adult. Life is just so much more fun in a Dr. Suess story. Olivia is also a big fan and The Cat in The Hat was one of the first books she enjoyed to read on her own too.

Harper Collins have taken 4 of the classics to bring fresh colour into reading for a new generation. Olivia received 2 of these to read and review in the form of **One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish **and **The Cat in The Hat. **The other titles available are **Fox in Socks** and of course **Green Eggs and Ham.**

The books are beautifully illustrated and I love the contrasts with the white next to the colours too it really makes it pop! One of the main things I love about these books is that the words flow with the illustrations making it so much more fun to read for younger children as oppose to a big block of text.

As we all know the beauty in these books is the rhyming and repetition making it fun to read out loud and listen to alike. Children learn through repetition and Dr. Suess uses limited vocabulary and rhymes with similar words to help children as they learn to read. Also The Cat in the Hat only has 246 words. I think this is what appealed to Olivia as a reluctant reader. I suppose there is nothing more boring to a non bookworm than a big chunk of text on a plain page. The Cat in The Hat is the complete opposite! If you don’t currently own any Dr. Suess books you need to asap!

Don’t they look great, I much prefer them to the ones we already have. They would be lovely to have as a full complete set for anyone’s bookcase.

*Each book has an RRP of £6.99 and are available to buy on Amazon right now.*

**The Cat in The Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish and Fox In Socks**

i loved reading narnia when i was a child and its probably still my favourite !

It’s really hard to choose a favorite Dr Seuss book. As a child, I enjoyed One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish and Marvin K Mooney Will You Please Go Now! When I graduated, I connected with Oh The Places You’ll Go (a typical graduation gift in the States). And Horray for Diffendoofer Day! (done with help from others based on manuscripts) is fantastic for overtested students and their stressed teachers.

The Cat in the Hat was mine too 🙂

Dr Seuss is always a firm favourite for me. I hope to win this so that i can share them with my son!! #triedtested
