Feed Me: Dr. Suess


Linking up with The Adventures of Motherhood to share some favorite Suess books!

Of our Dr. Suess books, my son likes Are You My Mother? best.

The journey of a baby bird searching for it's mommy is sweet and cleverly introduces other animals.  But what my machine-loving boy likes the most is the "Snort."  This crane-type machine saves the day.  For a while lots of machines we saw were called a Snort.  His Nana even got him construction jammies because he told her he wanted some with a Snort on it.  And you know Nanas can do anything... so she made it happen! 

Another top contender is Put Me in the Zoo.  I particulary like the flow of words.  And it is a good message about thinking you want something, but there is a better thing waiting for you.

Now, the one that makes me sound like I am just learning to read myself because I always trip over the words...

The Lorax

Maybe I should practice when he's not around.

Happy Friday!


  1. My daughter and son just received "The Lorax" and "If I Ran the Circus" a few weeks ago, and I haven't had a chance to read them yet. My daughter loves "Put Me in the Zoo" - I think she had parts of it memorized before she was 2!

  2. Thanks for visiting our Feed Me Books Dr. Seuss post, and for sharing yours! I'm your newest follower. Happy Friday!

  3. We have the board book version of Put me in the zoo. My kids have always liked it.

  4. I'm not familiar with The Lorax. We'll have to give it a read. I love the tongue-tripping ones. The challenge is so much fun!

  5. I love those books. The most tongue tripping Dr. Suess book for me is Fox in Socks. When they start going on about the tweetle beetle battle. I have gotten better, but the Luke Luck licks lakes section gets me every single time. I have to say it really slow. Like you said, I think I need to practice. :-)

  6. I'm shocked and excited that there are so many Seuss books I have yet to read.

    It's fun to read everyone's comments as well.
