His works have nurtured the growth of several generations of American citizens. It is said that the first book of a quarter of children in the United States comes from the works of Dr. Seuss, who can be called the national teacher of the United States.

Dr. Seuss's works, full of rhythmic language, are catchy to read, the style of painting is clear, and the stories are funny. Maybe adults don't feel it, but children like it very much. 

His philosophy is to treat children as equals, so he doesn't want to impose dogmatic things on children in books, which is why the things he presents in his works, whether it is text or pictures, are as strange and unrestricted as children's thinking. There is no such thing as reasonable and unreasonable.

Dr. Seuss's books always contain thought-provoking truths in imaginative stories; without deliberate preaching, children can naturally understand these truths and make them more receptive.

21 Most Popular and Famous Collection of Dr Seuss Books 

One in four children in the United States writes their first book—Dr. Suess. In 2001, the American "Publisher Weekly" selected the one hundred best-selling classic children's books of all time (All-Time Bestselling Children's Books), of which sixteen are Dr. Seuss's, among the top twenty. He accounted for six, and behind him was the British JK Rowling who wrote the Harry Potter series.

Each of Dr. Seuss's children's books uses interesting rhymes, mainly to train children's mastery of English phonetic systems, such as foxes, boxes, socks, clocks, blocks, and so on. The sentences in the book are very simple, and when read aloud in an exaggerated tone, children will listen with great interest.

If domestic parents want to cultivate their children's interest and ability to learn English from an early age, I highly recommend Dr. Seuss's book. Kids will love it. But unfortunately, Dr. Seuss's books are all interesting sentences and scenes, not a complete story. 

The following are Dr. Seuss's most popular children's picture books, suitable for parents and children aged 2-4 to read together, and 5-10 years old to read independently.

This is Dr. Seuss' alphabet friend. Dr. Seuss introduces the boring English alphabet to children through these imaginative things. Let English become lively and interesting from the alphabet.

Incredibly, Mr. Brown can make so many interesting sounds. This is really a great book for kids to learn about various sounds.


5. One fish, Two fish, Red fish, Blue fish

8. The Cat in the Hat


The Cat in the Hat


The Cat in the Hat is also a book recommended. A cat with a tall hat and a discounted bow tie arrives unexpectedly on a dank, dank rainy day, bringing all kinds of wacky tricks to two sisters who are bored at home by their mother. 

Almost everything in the house has become a cat prop so that the world is turned upside down, and the worst thing is that the cat is also soiled mother's beautiful dress... 

When all the destruction and mischief seemed to be getting worse, the mother came from outside the door The sound of footsteps, and the children were caught off guard by the mess of the house, how should they face the mother who is about to push the door? After so many troubles, how should the cat in the hat clean up the mess?

It turned out that Dr. Seuss used very rhythmic language to turn the story into a tongue twister and exercise the children's ability to speak.


10. Green Eggs and Ham


Green Eggs and Ham


The creation of this book stemmed from a bet between Dr. Seuss and a friend that a story could be written in fifty words. Hence this popular book. 

Stories are familiar topics that resonate with children—whether or not to try new foods. The plot develops intensely, one desperately persuades, the other desperately hides, and the final outcome is unexpected.


11. Oh, the things you can think!


Oh, the thinks you can think!


How Many Whimsical Ideas Can You Have is another great book that embodies Dr. Seuss's classic style! Imagination is Dr. Seuss's guiding principle for children's education. 

How many whimsies can you have with fantastic color combinations (dark water, day, pink hair of a green freak, colorful gloves, etc.), oddly shaped Guffs with a few tails that make kid's eyeballs Big cakes with ice cream, and red cherries on top that are about to fall out, fifty elephants drinking water, blue mushrooms like hats, a swimming pool floating above the house... 

these whimsy and novel visual effects are exactly what the author makes to encourage children to use their imaginations.


12. Ten Apples Up On Top!


Ten Apples Up On Top!


The story of Ten Apples on the Top of the Head revolves around the game of topping apples. Topping apples is also a very cute game. Who is more powerful and who can stand up more apples? 

Let's take a look at the picture book together! The little lion was the first one who started to top apples. After he lifted one apple, he felt very relaxed, so he started to try to top 2 and 3 apples. . . 

At this time, the little Dalmatian appeared in front of the little lion with 3 apples, not only the apples but also the jump rope while holding the apples.


13. The Lorax


The Lorax


This is a story about protecting the environment, cultivating children's enthusiasm for loving nature, and protecting it.


14. Horton Hears a Who! 


Horton Hears a Who!


The story conveys the idea of ​​equality of life and protection of the weak. No matter how small, every life has its right to exist and should be respected and protected.

Dr. Seuss's picture book Houghton Hears Huhu tells a moving story. One of the impressions stems from the concept of equality of life and protection of the weak that it conveys. No matter how small, every life has its right to exist and should be respected and protected. 

In the same way, no matter how small, every life has value and meaning of existence. It is precisely because of the addition of Qiao Qiao, the voice of the smallest person in Huhu City, that the shouts of Huhus are finally heard by everyone. 

This story has a warm ending. The little kangaroo who used to laugh at Horton with his mother eventually joined the team guarding Huhu. With his still immature hands, he supported these lives. Bright little umbrella. 

I hope that every adult and child can cherish and protect every life around them, no matter how small, when they are deeply moved when they close this picture book. As a world-renowned picture book author, Dr. Seuss not only creates humorous and quirky children's elementary English books, but his writing also touches on some major and controversial social issues.

21. Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories


Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories


There are three stories in this book, and the core of the story is only one, that is, "limit". As far as the eye can see, how far is it? The Turtle King Yertle was convinced that everything he saw was the same as the realm he ruled. Taking the stone beside the pond as his throne, he can only see the pond and see a very small area, so naturally, his rule is also pitiful. 

The only way for Yelt to expand his territory is to stand tall and see far, but while he is still clamoring to build a throne of five thousand, five thousand six hundred and seven turtles, two hundred tortoises under his feet throne are in jeopardy. 

How many feathers grow on the tail is the most important thing. The little female bird fluffy thinks that nature is more beautiful. The result of such a frantic insistence turned out to be that the tail was too big to fall, and the only way to return to the original place was reluctance. Undoubtedly, extremes will reverse. 

But Dr. Seuss is clearly far from stopping there. In the following "Bragging", the appearance of the old bug is the end of "Bragging", and it is also the conclusion of the whole book. With the world's most sensitive sense of hearing and smell, who can reach the farthest? 

The rabbit and the sea of ​​​​bears couldn't fight, and the unbearable old bug came out and made a break. The ridicule of all kinds of short-sighted and arrogant people is really indescribable. The eyesight of Yeltle the tortoise is incomparable to that of the old bug. 

Since Yelter fell into the pond, all he could see was mud; and even if the incomparably small old bug was deep in the hole, his flying eyes could see the whole world. Things are limited, and minds are boundless. 

Only the gaze of the wanderer can be far and boundless. Dr. Seuss's is to be able to retract freely, vertically and horizontally, and finally, return to the starting point, that is, the present. As if there was nowhere and nowhere to go.
