I didn't discover this one until I was older, but now it's my go to Seuss book for storytime.

This early reader by Dr. Seuss is what I believe he is all about--teaching kids to read in a fun and nonsensical way. There is really no story line here. It is time for Marvin K. Mooney to go so we are asking him to go by any transportation he wishes as long as he goes now. The interesting repetitiveness is what makes these books so fun. And while most of the text is quite simple, he throws some new words in like stilts and camels, but the illustrations make it obvious what the words are.

Dr. Seuss is a master at early readers. This is a good one.

Who would leave a comment criticizing a Dr. Seuss book? It's great and of course a great read aloud book. I read it last in a series of three books I read aloud to kids as a nice segue to my exit.

Loved it as a child, but not my favorite Dr. Seuss now. The rhymes just don't have as much magic as some others do.
