What do you want to do when you grow up? A ticket taker . . . a pizza maker . . .? A wrestler, a writer or maybe a waiter? A whole host of silly and sensible options dances before your eyes in this rhythmic, rhyming cavalcade of jobs.
"I can read it all by myself" is the Beginner Books motto, and behind it is an understanding of how important it is for children to take pride and pleasure in their early reading. The Dr Seuss Beginner Books series has been designed to appeal directly to children through the use of humour, rhyme and bright pictures that can be "read" even by the non-reading child. Some Beginner Books are simple stories, others are hilarious nonsense: both types have been designed to give children confidence and make them want to go on reading.
