To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The question with Dr Seuss has always been which of his books to choose and purchase for one's child, when he has written so many lovely ones! One surely can't buy them all, even though they are all quite brilliant. My daughter loves this book and it is one of her favourite Dr Seuss ones. I am about to order it yet again, as a birthday present this time- it never fails to be a success. No other reviewer seems to have mentioned that Dr Seuss actually coined a word for this book; the word "Nerd". There's even a cute drawing of a Nerd in the book. My daughter's school librarian mentioned it to her, so I thought I'd write it here. Upon having a look on the internet, I discovered that "nerd" is one of 2 words that he coined, the other one of course being "grinch". Just because of this fact, this book is a classic and deserves a place in any child's bookcase!
Brilliant Dr. Seuss with some of the best tongue twisting names for animals and areas of the world you could ever hope to find. A firm favorite in our story book collection - I enjoy reading it to my children as much as they like listening to it.
