Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dr. Seuss genius at work Sure, it teaches valuable vocabulary words and rhyme schemes to tiny tots. And no doubt there's a thesis somewhere comparing hapless Knox to Stalin knocking heads against the red-white-and-blue American Fox. But *Fox in Socks* is above all other things the first instrument of torture children can use against their parents. Take Father, tired out from a hard day at the office. "Read me a story, Daddy," coos his blond princess. Father bravely tries to wrap his tongue around "Luke Luck likes lakes./ Luke's duck likes lakes." Daddy's little angel chortles with each misspoken word -- and there are plenty of them by the time he arrives at the muddle puddle tweetle poodle beetle noodle battle paddle battle." She goes to sleep secure in the knowledge that not only can she grow up to be president, but that she's already smarter than her poor parents. And that's the genius of Dr. Suess. His tongue teasers and outrageous Goo Gooses and Bim Bens and Tweedle Beetles don't just foster imagination -- they encourage kids to let it run rampant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dr. Suess' Greatest Achievement ! Theodore Greisel was a literary genius. Under the pseudonym of "Dr. Suess", he single-handedly reinvented the way pre-schoolers were taught how to read. No small feat. All of his books were engaging, with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic phonetics, syntax, and fundamental reading skills. Most notable about his art, was how respectfully Greisel treated children and their intelligence. Many would consider his 1957 classic "The Cat In The Hat" to be his best book. In my opinion, "Fox In Socks" is his magnum opus. The book opens with the wry warning : Take it Slowly. This Book Is Dangerous ! Written entirely with increasingly complex tounge-twisters, "Fox In Socks" engages children on a visceral level ; and adults almost on a psychedelic one ! Genuinely funny and utterly brilliant. Few books have ever made me laugh out loud. This one does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tongue Twister Focks in Sox or Socks in Fox, however you manage to say it. This book was an absolute delight, to both myself and my 2-year-old daughter (Parents can relate). My daughter loves being read to, and the only other time she was as attentive was during Green Eggs and Ham.
