I never read the Dr. Seuss books as a child, and I have to say I never understood them as an adult (with books like Dr. Seuss’s ABC, I couldn’t help wondering, why elephant? why this “m” word? where’s the logic?) Then I became a mother. This book is fun to read and totally repeatable, and it keeps your young toddler entertained. It’s total nonsense, so it’s not one of those books that has a deep moral lesson or meaning, but there’s something so ridiculous about the rhymes (like “there’s a wasket in your basket” or “there’s a zlock behind the clock”) that you can’t help but put on your theatre voice and be entertained along with your clapping toddler. There’s a certain rhythm to the words, and the fact that it’s a mostly indestructible board book and bright enough to keep even a young toddler’s attention, make this well worth owning.
