Seuss is one of the most well known children's authors of all time, and for good reason at that. With classic books such as Green Eggs and Ham, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish , Blue Fish, and Dr. Seuss's ABC's, children and adults alike are drawn to his imaginative stories and catchy style of writing. He makes reading fun by using rhyming words as well as including many colorful pictures, easily keeping a young child's attention.
Although some may say Seuss's use of nonsense words is uneducational, I believe it promotes the use of imagination and creativity. Nobody that I know of can actually define a "Zizzer-zazzer-zuzz" or a "Ruffle-Necked Sala-ma-goox", as used Seuss used in his books Dr. Seuss's ABC's, and Scrambled Eggs Super, but that leaves it to the young readers mind to imagine how these unheard of characters look and act. "I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities." -Dr. Seuss. Be able to enjoy a story is equally important.
to what is learned from it, and millions of people enjoy the stories of Seuss each day. .
Seuss helps the reading process along by making reading fun for children. He uses rhyming words, like in his book Fox in Sox. The line "When beetles fight these battles in a bottle with their paddles and the bottle's on a poodle and the poodle's eating noodles." makes reading slightly easier for young readers by repeating words as well as using words that are similar to each other giving children an advantage when learning to read. Ever since before I could read, my favorite book was Green Eggs and Ham, and I"m sure that what drew me to it was that just from having it read to me (approximately 21,000 times) I was able to memorize every word. I actually believed I could read because I knew what each page said, even though I had no idea what each combination of.
