Recognizing shapes is an important skill for pre-readers, and Dr Seuss makes it extremely enjoyable. Children will first want to identify all the amusing shapes and will later match them to the words nearby.
Bright and Early books help even the youngest children get ready to read. Simple stories and basic concepts are humorously presented in rhythm and rhyme. Pictures that fully explain the text help even babies make the important connection between word and meaning. It's never to early to find out that "learning to read is fun."
