Is It Any Good?

These are stories by Seuss, so of course they're entertaining and imaginative! Rhymes, rhythms, illustrations, and lessons are just as good as Seuss fans would expect. Those who grew up reading The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and so on will love the fact that they can reconnect to all the joy past Seuss stories brought them and, at the same time, see what a few familiar characters are up to in other, earlier adventures.

Readers new to Seuss will enjoy the fun and play of these stories and be looking for more. Cohen's informative comments make the book even more enjoyable, and complete, but might have been better placed as an afterword rather than an introduction.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
