About the Book:
Back in 1957, Theodor Geisel responded
to an article in Life magazine that lamented the use of boring
reading primers in schools. Using the pseudonym of "Dr. Seuss"
(Seuss was Geisel's middle name) and only two hundred twenty-three
words, he created a replacement for those dull primers: The
Cat in the Hat. The instant success of the book prompted Theodor Geisel
and his wife to found Beginner Books, and Geisel wrote many popular
books in this series, including Fox in Socks.
The classic Dr. Seuss book Fox in Socks
features silly tongue twisters that will have readers of all
ages giggling with glee. When a fox in socks meets Knox in a box, you
know that hilarity will ensue. Add chicks with bricks (and blocks and
clocks) and you re sure to get your words twisted and lips locked.
With his unmistakable gift for rhyme, Dr. Seuss creates a hysterical
and energetic way for beginning readers to dive into the joy of
reading. This book comes with the following warning: This is a book
you READ ALOUD to find out just how smart your tongue is. The first
time you read it, don t go fast! This Fox is a tricky fox. He'll try
to get your tongue in trouble.
Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Fox in Socks encourages
children to read all by themselves, with simple words and
illustrations that give clues to their meaning. This
affordable hardcover book combines large print, easy vocabulary, and
large, bright illustrations in a story kids will want to read again
