From the Publisher
Loved by generations, this "simplest Seuss for youngest use" is
a Beginner Book classic. See Red and Ned and Ted and Ed in a bed.
And giggle as Pat sits on a hat and on a cat and on a bat . . . but
a cactus? Pat must NOT sit on that! This classic Beginner Book
makes an ideal gift for Seuss fans and is an especially good way to
show Pop some love on Father's Day!
Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children
to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that
give clues to their meaning.

About the Author
THEODOR SEUSS GEISEL-aka Dr. Seuss-is one of the most beloved
children's book authors of all time. From The Cat in the
Hat to Oh, the Places You'll Go!, his iconic
characters, stories, and art style have been a lasting influence on
generations of children and adults. The books he wrote and
illustrated under the name Dr. Seuss (and others that he wrote but
did not illustrate, including some under the pseudonyms Theo.
LeSieg and Rosetta Stone) have been translated into thirty
languages. Hundreds of millions of copies have found their way into
homes and hearts around the world. Dr. Seuss's long list of awards
includes Caldecott Honors for McElligot's Pool, If I
Ran the Zoo, and Bartholomew and the Oobleck, the
Pulitzer Prize, and eight honorary doctorates. Works based on his
original stories have won three Oscars, three Emmys, three Grammys,
and a Peabody.
From Our Editors
Three-letter words and incessant rhyming scatter themselves across
Hop on Pop like steps on which children
can ascend the reading ladder. The silly verses brim with jubilant
energy, leaving kids to follow the trail of letters as it streams
across insanely imaginative, panoramic illustrations. Dr.
Seuss does his best to make the language fun, combining
word recognition with phonetics to trigger and stimulate the
learning process. Hop on Pop is much more
than a primer though, it's a gateway into what will be a more
wonderful world of words.
