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 and again.
