    Default Your kids favourite Dr. Seuss Book?

    DS 2 just starting to get interested in reading, he started prep in January.
    And from DS 1 we have 2 Dr. Seuss books, the cat in the hat and green eggs and ham, which DS 2 absolutely loves. But I'm sick of reading the same story over and over..

    So was thinking of buying him some more books but which ones are your favourites?
    I'd go for the green back books, as I don't mind reading to him and when he's 6/ 7 years old, he can read them by himself.

    But I didn't think there'd be so many, it's hard to chose 2-3 books from ...

    We have the Classic Case of Dr. Seus box set(it has 20 of his books), I can honestly say they don't have a favourite! They love them all and I often have to read 3 or 4 books a night because they can't choose just one. We do read One fish, Two fish, Red fish, blue fish, The Lorax and Horton hears a who quite a fair bit, and also How the grinch stole christmas.

    DD's favourites are There's a wocket in my pocket, The Lorax and Green Eggs and Ham. The Dr Seuss collection books Best Nest and Are you my Mother are her other favourites although they are written by P.D Eastman.

    Ds 2 who is 5, brought the Lorax home from the library, had to read it every night for the whole week lol.
    I saw the Classic case book set at Big W today, not quite sure if it was the classic case but was a book set with a bunch of books in it and I was tempted to get it, was only $30..

    The one at Big W I saw wasn't the classic collection, they didn't had this one. It was a Gaggle of Giggles, 6 hard cover books.
    Dr. Seuss books
    Just registered on Fishpond for an email, when the Classic case is in stock again.

    We have all of them for DS. My mum kept most of them from when me and my brother were little and passed them onto DS. His favourite is "I Wish That I Had Duck Feet"
