Best Dr. Seuss Books

The Top Ten

1 The Lorax

Talks abour prevalent issues and makes it easy for children to understand.

"I am the Lorax, I speak for the trees". At one point, I had the entirety of this book memorized. It's a classic books with a fantastic message. - keycha1n

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing's going to get better. It's not."

A great allegory for the greed of big business'

2 The Cat in the Hat

Probably his most popular book - Ajkloth

This book is amazing the movie spectacular I mean cat in the hat 11/10 so good

This book is amazing! It is great for children just beginning to read. I read this book in first grade when I was learning to read and it has always been with me since.

What a timeless classic! The ride at Universal is fun, too.

3 Green Eggs and Ham

Used to ask my kindergarten teacher to read this to me every single day. Oh how she complained, but I insisted! - keycha1n

This book inspired me to open a breakfast in bed

I remember this book being read to me as a kid - trains45

All time favorite childhood book!

4 How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

"And the Grinch's small heart grew three sizes that day. "

I love this book. I watched this movie as a kid. - DynastiSugarPop

The Grinch was mean and then he was kind to the who's.The who's probably appreciate very much! I really loved the movie! ! !

I love this book!

5 Horton Hears A Who!

"A Person's a person, no matter how small."

Beautifully drawn and sentences all of which are written to perfection.

I love this book

6 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.

Sad that he died after this book

7 The Sneetches and Other Stories

The pants mini story is good

My favorite story is the Zax. - Galactic

This one is the BEST!

8 One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish

I love this book

Best book ever this is my childhood

This book is great me and my friend both like this book the best

Fun, colorful, overall amazing

9 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!


it's great

10 Fox in Socks

Best book ever!

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

Really tricky book to read but really fun. I would probaly try to read as fast as I can but I could barley read the first sentence.

Such a fun tongue twister ( my tongue is numb )

The Contenders

11 Yertle the Turtle
12 And to Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street

This should at least be in the top ten. It was my favorite book as a kid and it's such a good story.

13 The Cat in the Hat Comes Back

I remember reading this book as a kid - trains45

He came back?

Out of the house? Why, every house should have a cat in it, curled up by the fireplace a little warm. You know that fun is good and you shouldn't be so grumpy to someone who’s been grinched by the Grinch

What I see is a nice and funny and really nice picture book that if you goggle it up it got 93% 1% better than green eggs and ham and better than the car in the hat I do not think that it should be number 14 that is my opinion 👨

14 The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins
15 Oh, the Thinks You Can Think!

It should be top 10 at least! My second favorite after The Lorax

I remember this book - trains45

16 Horton Hatches the Egg
17 Bartholomew and the Oobleck:

This is my favorite, I was introduced when an art teacher read this and taught us how to make our own oobleck, probably one of my favorite memories as a child.

18 There's a Wocket in My Pocket!

Super funny

€śSmithers! There’s a rocket in my pocket” -Mr Burns - The Simpsons

19 If I Ran the Zoo
20 The Butter Battle Book

You're kidding... This wasn't here?! The classic satirical kids book?! This books speaks a million words of war, humanity, and sense. Must be on this list, and must be at least in TTT? - keycha1n

30 I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!

32 The Cat's Quizzer

A brilliant quiz book. No, it doesn’t rhyme, but who cares? The questions are hilarious! This should be #8. It should also be more popular.

33 Halloween Is Grinch Night

Best book especially that inside the paraphernalia wagon part.

34 The Foot Book
35 The Pocket Book of Boners

Dr. Seuss' first book. Obviously not his first children's book. - Galactic

I guess the word, "boner" meant something different back then.
