8 Hop on Pop

it's great

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!

This needs to be #1 - jameshoward

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

My favorite

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

10 Fox in Socks

Mr. Knox, sometimes the right path is just not the easiest one. Don't you see, only when paradise goes on, can you think of a tongue twister?

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.

The Contenders

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

Super funny

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

13 The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins
14 Dr. Seuss's ABC: An Amazing Alphabet Book!
15 The Cat in the Hat Comes 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 👨

He came back?

16 Horton Hatches the Egg
17 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.

18 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.

19 Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You?
20 The Butter Battle Book

Should be in top 15

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

21 Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now!
22 Oh, the Thinks You Can Think!

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

23 I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew
24 Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose

This movie taught me so many lessons on dealing with fake friends

25 If I Ran the Zoo
26 I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today! And Other Stories

I don't even know it

27 Scrambled Eggs Super!
28 I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!
29 Wacky Wednesday

By far the best book of my childhood. There’s always something to see.

30 Gertrude McFuzz
31 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.

32 The Foot Book
33 Daisy-Head Mayzie


Not a classic but still better than most kids books

34 The Tooth Book

One of my favorite Dr. Seuss books.

Best book ever

35 The Pocket Book of Boners

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

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

36 The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories
37 What Pet Should I Get

Greatest book of all time.

38 Sam and the Firefly
39 Oh, Say Can You Say?
40 Halloween Is Grinch Night

Best book especially that inside the paraphernalia wagon part.

41 You're Only Old Once!

â€"The Amazing Somebody

“It’s true ya know

“This Book is overlooked. Also, kids should be able to read this amazing piece of literature.

42 Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book
43 The Shape of Me and Other Stuff
44 McElligot’s pool

This was my favorite when I was little - personally I think the art is some of Suess’ best.
