8 Hop on Pop

This crude piece of literature encourages our younglings to utilize their parental figures in the place of trampolines! It shows severe misbehaviour and violence without any consequences! We must get this book banned! - backflip

Classic book with controlled vocabulary, rhythm, and rhyme. Geisel was a Literary genius!


9 Oh, the Places You'll Go!

Amazingly inspiring book! EVERY kid at a graduation should read this. I wish every kid could read and be inspired by this book.

I saw this book at Creekside Intermediate School a few years ago while checking out Amelia's Notebook (the Scholastic release) by Marissa Moss with Mary Margaret Campbell. - playstationfan66

Really inspiring message. Every student should read it.

This needs to be #1 - jameshoward

10 Fox in Socks

Best book ever!

It makes me learn more about rhyming words in the real world.

Such a fun tongue twister ( my tongue is numb )

The Contenders

11 Yertle the Turtle
12 There's a Wocket in My Pocket!

Super funny
