My 6 year old daughter can READ this, and it builds her confidence to try to read other books. We will be putting this into the memory box, when she is done with it!

I strongly dislike Hop On Pop. This book is the reason that the dinosaurs are dead. Do you want your child to become a dinosaur killer? If not, do NOT read this book.

This book eases children into reading with careful attention to minimal sound distinctions between rhymes. It starts out by presenting pairs of words followed by a sentence, such as "CUP PUP Pup in cup," and then builds in linguistic complexity. The pictures allow for the teaching of semantic distinctions (such as the prepositions "in" versus "on") as well as the phonetic ones, and the natural progression of the book makes this one that children can start out reading a few pages of on their own, and eventually work their way through more and more of with an adult's help. Even as a child I enjoyed the rhythmic cadence of the phrase "Constantinople and Timbuktu," even though I had no idea where those cities were. Seuss never shied away from challenging children, which helps keep his works enjoyable for multiple ages and reading levels. This would also be a useful book for speech-language pathologists to use in therapy; I remember my brother having trouble distinguishing "three" from "free" in the "three fish in a tree" section, and the setup of the book is a nice way to show the relationships between orthography and sound. This is not always flawless, as "get wet," for example, is used as a rhyming pair, though it does not rhyme in my dialect; however, overall, the blend of simplicity and complexity is just right to appeal to and teach children of a number of ability levels.

A really great book for a beginner reader with lots of easy rhyming words. The illustrations are hilarious and make for an interesting read for young readers.

This is a classic Dr. Seuss book that I loved as a child. It has very simple words in it, so it would be great to use for phonics practice with young readers. The book is rhyming which makes it fun and easy to read. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone working with beginning readers.

Pairs of rhyming words are introduced and used in simple sentences, such as "Day. Play. We play all day. Night. Fight. We fight all night."

I extremely enjoyed reading this book. It is so up beat and fun to read. I recommend this book to everyone.

One of my favorite Dr. Seuss books. This is a good book about rhyming random words together; but this is a book young children would find fun and interesting.

Let's note first that this book isn't actually intended as a readaloud book, nor is it intended for children much younger than the age of six. The format of the book reflects this. It's a bit long for toddlers (who aren't known for having great attention spans), and the different spreads are disconnected - when a kid is at the age where they struggle to read "All, Ball, We All Play Ball", the last thing they need to worry about is what they read two pages before!Can it be used as a readaloud? No doubt! But don't be disappointed if it doesn't work for you and your kid that way.That said, this is a wonderful early reader. Simple rhyming text, with the main words in large print at the top of the page; and really funny illustrations.I really suggest this one.

The picture book that I reviewed was ¿Hop on Pop¿ and I really like this book. It¿s about opposite and uses prepositions and rhyming words to tell a story. I actually didn¿t pick this book my Godson did because he liked the cover. When I began to read the book I loved it because how the words rhyme and the illustrations were very nice. I think this book is for babies and Kindergartener. I enjoyed reading it to my Godson and his cousins¿ and they enjoyed listening to it. An extension that I think will be great for my class will be to go over some more opposite words and also play a game with some words and ask them to think of some words that rhyme together.

This is another classic Dr. Seuss book. It does not have a storyline - instead, it simply rhymes words and uses pictures to illustrate what is going on in the very simple sentence. For example - CUP PUP, Pup in cup. The picture shows a puppy in a cup. This is good to teach children prepositions, such as on, in, into, under, below, etc. The illustrations are classic Seuss characters. They show a lot of emotion and action in every picture. The text is still in it's own white space away from the illustrations.

A very fun book. It's a bit long to get through with my 14 month olds, but generally they really enjoy the bright colors and rhyming words. I imagine they'll continue to like it for a couple of years, and that it will be a good early reading book.

One of my favorite Dr. Seuss books, this is a fun and GREAT read.

We have the board-book edition, which is edited. This is probably good, as it is fairly mind-numbing to read, and is saved only by the Seussian humor.

This was another book that I thought my son would soon tire. I was wrong. Oh, that Dr. Seuss! I couldn't tell you why he likes the book, even when he is not paying any attention to the illustrations. He just does. I'll tell you why I like reading it out loud. It is fun in a rhymy-whymy way. It has the cadence of a chant. It is funny. And the illustrations -- even upside down and backwards, the illustrations are colorful and whimsical. Even if my son is too busy dancing to the rhythm of the text to notice the illustrations, I find them a delight.

We have a 1 year old granddaughter and one of the best things about her is that she LOVES books. She's grandma's girl in that Hop on Pop and all the Suess books she's received are a delight no matter how many times they're read and reread in an afternoon.
