Six by Seuss: A Treasury of Dr. Seuss Classics
Dr. Seuss's magic elixir may--or may not--prolong life, but it is a fact that it makes you feel a whole lot better! Here in one glorious volume are six of the good doctor's best prescriptions. Not a word or a picture has been omitted or changed. Ranging from his very first book, And to Thing That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, to his prophetic The Lorax, Six by Seuss is the perfect collection to share with the entire family and to pass from generation to generation.

Dr. Suess has created a legacy that can only be called fantastic. I remember as child loving his stories and the uniquely intimate style of his floppy-looking drawings. Now that I am a father, I get to relive a lot of that when I read to my kids. But I see more now: his books have plenty of wonderful messages, some of them moral, some social, some ecological. It is really brilliant stuff, and instructive.
My 6-year old son just can't ge enough of the Lorax. Beyond the fact that it is stimulating for him to read, he is wondering about the messages in it. It makes me happy and gratified to watch his mind develop. THere is no better source, I think. But he likes the other stories as well, and has plenty of questions about their themes as well. In a time when a single kids book might cost $15, this is indeed a good investment.
A terrific bargain for Seuss lovers

Most "compilation" children's books--books that collect a large number of originals into one volume--are horrible. They typically include only part of the original story, or only some of the pictures, or else they shrink the pictures in order to save space. This one, though, is the real deal--it's six complete Dr. Seuss books, collected under one cover but otherwise exactly the same as if you were buying the six originals. If your children love Dr. Seuss (are there any that don't?) then this will get you through a lot of bedtimes.
I should also emphasize one other point that has confused some new parents I have talked to: these are Dr. Seuss "big books", which are only suitable for children four and older (a couple of them won't work until your child is five or six, or didn't for mine). Younger children simply don't have the attention span to appreciate these stories. For them, you should stick to his "Beginner Books" (Green Eggs and Ham, Seven Apples up on Top, The Foot... read more
Wonderful Buy! Great for read for children and adults!

"Six by Seuss" was a fantastic buy. I am a teacher, and the stories in this book present a fun way to teach life lessons. "The Lorax" opens up possible discussion about environmental responsibility. "Yertal the Turtle" shows an example of a bad leader, and how far is too far. "Hortan and the Egg" teaches faithfulness and sticking to your word. Those are just three of the eight stories (three of them are short stories), but each one shows important principles for children to learn while presented in a fun and creative way! It helps open up discussion, but can also simply be read aloud for rhyming meter and repetitive diction.
