Using Seuss with Your Child


How to Use Dr. Seuss Books with Your Child

As a parent, you want the best for your children, and that means doing whatever it takes to help them become happy, well-rounded little people. By encouraging a love of reading, you’ll be doing your part to get them on the path toward academic success. And thanks to our four Dr. Seuss-based clubs, this step just got a whole lot easier.

Dr. Seuss and His Friends Club

The Cat in the Hat

  1. Dr. Seuss & His Friends: The classic stories from Dr. Seuss and his friends, including P.D. Eastman, Richard Scarry, Stan and Jan Berenstain, Marc Brown, and more.

  2. The Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library: Based on the hit PBS series, The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!™, this book series brings learning about science and the environment to a whole new level of fun for kids of any age.

three different reading levels built in:

In addition to helping your child reap the cognitive benefits of early reading—improved memory, sharper concentration, and a more robust vocabulary, to name a few—the Dr. Seuss Book Clubs also provide rewards that are measured in giggles and smiles. Each of the four clubs is designed to help you recapture your childhood, create a soothing and relaxing routine, and foster imagination and creativity—all while building a high-quality home library that can be enjoyed for generations to come.

Create Your Own Zany Days

Remember laughing out loud at Uncle Ubb’s underwear, checking your sink for a Nink, or imagining what it would be like to ride in a Zumble-Zay? Take a walk down memory lane and revisit the whimsical rhymes and magical illustrations found in the Dr. Seuss Classics. Embrace the carefree, lighthearted times of childhood with these fun activities, inspired by the legend himself:

Green Eggs and Ham

  • Have a “Wacky Wednesday,” complete with pizza and hot dogs
    for breakfast.

  • Transform a tricycle into a Zike-Bike (if you like).

  • Serve green eggs and ham for dinner.

  • Team up with flashlights and search for “Nupboards” in the cupboards.

  • Play rhyming games while traveling, or take turns making up zany tongue twisters.

  • Encourage motor skill development by drawing favorite characters or crafting them in clay, or use building toys to design wacky creations.

Reading as a Bonding Activity

Reading together is a wonderful way for your family to take a breather from the everyday hustle and bustle and re-connect. Snuggling up close to enjoy the story, your children will be captivated by the fanciful images and verses of the Dr. Seuss Classics.

Encourage children to “get in on the action” and take turns reading with Mom and Dad, sparking their imaginations and building their confidence. With storylines that infuse drama and inflection, it’s great fun for the whole family to act out their favorite scenes.

Reading together is also a great way to establish routines. In addition to bedtime, you can share stories during after-dinner cleanup, bath time, or while preparing meals. Set aside a specific time each day for family reading.
