Well, as you probably can tell from my reviews, I am a big Dr. Seuss fan. I love reading his books aloud to my kids, because they are entertained by the rhythmic and outlandish rhymes. Most of these silly stories make my kids giggle and If I Ran the Circus is no exception.
My friend has collected Dr. Seuss books for years, and certain ones are more difficult to find - "If I Ran the Circus" is one of those. No matter your age, this book makes you feel like a kid again.
if there ever was a book that was classic Dr. Seuss i would have to say its this one. makes me smile to know i own a book that my parents grew up with. fantastic book. amazing illustrations.
Dr. Seuss, for anyone who read or reads to their little children and grandchildren is timeless and enjoyable fun with words, rhyme, rhythem, and story. Children love it, and so do the ones who read to them. I bought this for an almost three year old granddaughter who loves the circus. The illustrations are classic Seuss and are delightful to little and old minds. You can't miss with Seuss!
I bought this for my boss for a small gift when she delivered her baby. She did the baby's room all in Dr. Suess and was collecting the books and did not have this one.
