My son Sam loves reading and he especially enjoys rhymes. Two years ago, when Sam was one, some American friends visited and said Sam should read Green Eggs & Ham by Dr Seuss. This book starts ‘I am Sam, I am Sam, Sam I am’. He loved it!
I didn’t grow up with Dr Seuss books but I’ve quickly grown extremely fond of them. We have loads – including two copies of some. It’s impossible to own too much Dr Seuss. Sam loves them and the amusing rhymes (luckily) stand up to being read ten times a day. The graphics are so joyful. They’re ideally suited to small children with clear lines and bold colours.
And what colours! What ridiculous fun!
