From the Publisher
Tongue twisters abound in this classic Dr. Seuss Beginner Book!
"Bed Spreaders spread spreads on beds.
Bread Spreaders spread butter on breads.
And that Bed Spreader better watch out how he''s spreading . .
or that Bread Spreader''s sure going to butter his bedding."
This riotous collection weaves together a wonderment of words
designed to twist the lips. Wordsmiths and beginning readers will
love Oh Say Can You Say? and treasure tackling these
tangled tongue teasers.
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.
