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

Really inspiring message. Every student should read it.

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!


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 Newcomers

? Sam and the Firefly

The Contenders

11 Yertle the Turtle
