There are a few great literary masters of our day and age. Some are know for their great prose and imagery, while others are known for talking about risky subjects and strange exotic worlds. There is, of course, one author who combines all of those things into his books, but most adults don’t take the time to read and understand his genius. Dr. Seuss wrote dozens of childrens books during his lifetime, and most of them are beloved by not only children, but their parents as well.
There’s a Wocket In My Pocket is a Dr. Seuss book that’s all about how a young boy sees strange things no matter where he looks! There’s no plot to this story, but those children (and adults) who love strange Seussian creatures will surely love all of the strange things that our narrator will see in his own home, including a Zelf on the shelf, a pink-and-yellow striped Zlock, and a creepy Vug.
Fortunately There’s a Wocket In My Pocket stays away from the creepy side of things and leans towards the silly, allowing children to realize that it’s okay for things to be different, and helping them to learn how to do simple rhymes at the same time. There’s a Wocket In My Pocket is a fun read for both children and parents alike, and is a great way to teach very young children about rhyming and all the fun that can be found right in your own home (if you look hard enough, of course).
