One of the first things, aside from learning how to socialize, that most schools teach children is their ABC’s. In a world where everything is written, especially now that everything has gone digital, it is important to know how to read, and many believe that the younger you are when you learn, the better of a reader you’ll be. There are, quite literally, thousands of childrens books that were written specifically to show children how to understand the ABC’s, but none of them are quite like Dr. Seuss’s ABC book.
We all know that the wonderfully whacky doctor has a few tricks up his sleeves, and when it comes to teaching children how to learn the alphabets, he spares no punches. Dr. Seuss’s ABC starts where a book should start, at the beginning with A, and then goes through the alphabet to talk about all of the letters, but with the great rhyming and imagination that Dr. Seuss is known for.
Things like “Lion with a lollipop” and “uncle Ubb’s umbrella” come up relatively often. The book shows children what the letter look like, in big form and in small form, and allows them to use the different sounds of the letter in repetitious rhymes. Dr. Seuss’s ABC is one touted by many as one of the best books that you can get a child who is learning the alphabet, and, as a bonus, it’s fun for parents to read as well, making it something that you can both enjoy.
