I am a huge fan of all Dr. Seuss books. I honestly have some of my copies still from when I was a child. I have given these to my children, and we have tried to pick up the other Dr. Seuss books that we did not have. Dr. Seuss books are a great way to get your child excited about reading. They are great for early readers. Dr. Seuss truly knew how to make reading fun. Dr. Seuss books are also great for older kids. My son still loves to sit down and read one of his fun books when he wants to read something light.
Did you know that a new Dr. Seuss book is being released? A manuscript was found for a book that was never published. It was found in his house. This book will be released, and I am so excited. I cannot wait to check it out. What Pet Should I Get? will be the first Dr. Seuss book that will be released since 1990. This book will feature the brother and sister from One Fish, Two Fish. This really is an exciting event!
ABOUT WHAT PET SHOULD I GET? (copy provided)
In the Fall of 2013, an original manuscript with accompanying sketches by Dr. Seuss, aka Ted Geisel, was discovered in the La Jolla, California home of the late beloved children’s author. That complete manuscript was for the picture book, WHAT PET SHOULD I GET?, and will be published by Random House Children’s Books on . It is the first original new Dr. Seuss book since the publication of the last book of Dr. Seuss’s career, Oh, the Places You’ll Go! in 1990. WHAT PET SHOULD I GET? captures the excitement of a classic childhood moment—choosing a pet—and features the brother and sister characters that Dr. Seuss drew inOne Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.

Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose - Review
I received a copy of one of our favorite Dr. Seuss books to help celebrate the release of his new book Thidwick The Big-Hearted Moose is an adorable story that my children love. The book features the fun drawings of Dr. Seuss. The book also is loaded with the sing songy rhyming that Dr. Seuss is so famous for. The art and rhyming always make his books even more fun. This book is written with simple text that even early readers can attempt. The book is about Thidwick who is up at Lake Winna-Bango. He is looking for moose moss to munch! He continues to search for moose moss, and on his way he meets some very interesting creatures. Thidwick meets a Bingle Bug, Tree-Spider, Zinn-a-zu Bird, and many more. These silly creatures seem to climb on top of Thidwick's horns. Thidwick is burdened by all the creatures on top of his head, but he doesn't want to say anything. More and more creatures climb on top of his horns until they are completely covered. Thidwick also encounters some danger in the book. There are some hunters that want to try and shoot him. Thidwick has to escape with 500 pounds on his horns! Thidwick escapes! He is still burdened by the heavy weight of all the creatures on his horns though as his journey continues. Then something happens. Thidwick loses his horns. New horns will grow back eventually. He then tells the creatures on his horns that they can have them! He sets off to the other side of the lake to munch on moose-moss. Thidwick is a nice moose, but has a hard time speaking up. This book really teaches a fun lesson while reading. It teaches children the importance of speaking up if you do not like something.
