“McElligot’s pool” written and illustrated by Dr. Seuss

“McElligot’s Pool is a Seuss classic from the distant era before even The Cat In The Hat. It’s a single poetic variation on the theme of adult skepticism that’s no match for childhood faith and daydreaming. A small boy is fishing in the tiny, unpromising McElligot’s Pool, a puddle that (as a passing farmer informs our diminutive hero) is nothing but a hole where people dispose of their junk.”

“Dr. Seuss’ ABC” by Dr. Seuss

“Dr. Seuss turns the alphabet from fifty-two shapes and twenty-six sounds one has to memorize into an exercise in rhymery and wordplay. Uppercase and lowercase letters are taken for a spirited airing, matched with an apt selection of fun words, all set in the suitably absurd world of Seuss characters and creatures.”

Miércoles / “Fox in socks “ by Dr. Seuss

FoxInSocksBookCover

“Fox in Socks is a children’s book by Dr. Seuss, first published in 1965. It features two main characters, Fox and his partner Mr. Knox, who converse almost entirely in densely rhyming tongue-twisters. The book in some ways bears a resemblance to Green Eggs and Ham, another book by Dr. Seuss. Both stories contain two main characters: one who is stubborn and wants to be left alone; the other, a persistent and sometimes annoying opposite.”
