Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! Children's Book Review: There's a Wocket In My Pocket

There's a Wocket in My Pocket!

There's a Wocket In My Pocket!
Written by:  Dr. Seuss
Published by: Random House Books For Young Readers, 1996 (first published 1974)

There's a Wocket in My Pocket is filled with bizarre creatures and rhymes: the nupboard in the cupboard, ghairs beneath the stairs, and the bofa on the sofa!

 * Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!  In honor of his birthday, I thought that I would share one of our family's favorites of his.  We have this book in a board book version.  We love the silliness of the rhymes and when we read we like to leave off the ends of the rhymes and have the kids fill them in. However, the real enjoyment of Dr. Seuss is the silliness and the nonsense words (invented rhymes)!

Family Rating:  2 thumbs up!
