Oh, the Thinks You Can Think! Dr. Seuss

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61yRzIBw9LL.jpg

This week I am reviewing Dr. Seuss' Oh, the Thinks You Can Think! Random House has released Bright and Early Board Books with a few adaptations of favorite readers. I find this is a success!

Oh, the Thinks You Can Think! introduces imagination to your totz. Mix your thoughts, join the peculiar, combine what you know with what could be:

"You can think about Night,
a night in Na-Nupp.
The birds are asleep
and the three moons are up."

Or think of what you know in an unusual setting:

Think of Light.
Think of Bright.
Think of
Stairs in the Night.

Of course, all the wonderful rhyme and nonsense is guaranteed from the brilliant mind of Theodor Geisel.

As well as the gorgeous line and flat areas of bright color. So explore imaginary food, animals, and places, and then think some more.

Bravo, Random House, for a new format for a classic. Your totz will love this early introduction to Dr. Seuss!

My 1 year old is fixated on There's a wocket in my pocket at the moment, so I'm sure she'd love this one too. And hurrah for it being in board format - I know the modifications made to text/illustration can be annoying to adults who know other versions, but board books are just great for handling by kids and being taken out and about I think.
