Publishers Description With Dr. Seuss as your guide, learning the alphabet is as easy as A, B, C.
Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904. After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising. His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!, appeared in several leading American magazines. Dr. Seuss's first children's book, And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever! In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best- selling series, Beginner Books. This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills. Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped kids learn to read.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and three Academy Awards, Seuss was the author and illustrator of 44 children's books, some of which have been made into audiocassettes, animated television specials, and videos for children of all ages. Even after his death in 1991, Dr. Seuss continues to be the best-selling author of children's books in the world.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dr. Seuss's ABC: An Amazing Alphabet Book! (Bright & Early Board Books(TM))?
Really disapointed! Jun 13, 2008
I didn't know that what I ordered were adaptations of the origial. I saw a cheaper price and ordered them. My daughter loves Dr.Seuss but not in this version. I think it would be fair to advertize the book as being the short edition, or adptation, specify clearly that it is not the entire text. I hope that I can return them because I want the real Dr. Seuss and not the " butchered" one, as one of the previous reviewers said.
Love, love, love! A true classic! Jan 29, 2008
The cute rhymes as you teach your child(ren) the alphabet, only as Dr. Seuss can do! Very entertaining to the child as they learn and for the person reading it to them. It's not too wordy. A must have!
I actually love this "revised version" Dec 7, 2007
I have an 18 month old who will not sit still for the original version but LOVES this one. She particularly likes its rhythm and repetition. Unlike the original, every letter begins with "Big "X", Little "x" what begins with "X"? She'll move her shoulder's back and forth in rhythm every time I say this sentence, waiting for the answer to follow. Young toddlers find that repetition comforting. . . if you want an example, how many times have the insisted on seeing their favorite movie?
Nuff said. Get this book for a younger toddler and introduce them to reading.
Fun and rhythmic book for young ones Jun 25, 2007
My daughter has loved this book since she was six months old. She is now two and still requests us to read this book to her. It's fun and wonderful, and I strongly recommend it for anyone under 4.
