One Fish, Two Fish




Here's Little Bit sporting her cool Dr. Seuss shirt that we picked up for her while we were in Orlando. Her FAVORITE book at the moment is One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. Do you guys read Dr. Seuss books to your kids? I'm talking the complete versions, not the shortened down board books? Jesus are they LONG! One Fish is like 62 pages! I think we've made it through the entire book once. And I like to call myself literate but man can they be tricky to read out loud.

They ARE long!! When I read them to my class, I rarely make it through a whole thing. I like the board books. Crib notes. LOL

Aubree makes me read them over and over and I am about to die because they are so long.

I love the t-shirt.

I know, they are so long, Ashley can't sit still for that long so we never make it through one.
Love the shirt!

I'm not a fan either. My kids HATE Green eggs and ham, but One fish is acceptable. Go Dog Go is Ethan's fav Seuss, but he gets stuck on the pages with the red light/green light and obsesses over those. He now yells out in the car, GREEN LIGHT Daddy, that means go. And RED LIGHT, that means stop!

They ARE really long but they are some of Jonathan's favorite books! He is particularly fond of The Sneetches and Other Stories.

I just love that shirt!!

Are you kidding? I can recite Green Eggs and Ham complete without ever looking at the book! And let me tell ya, there comes a day when they know if you have skipped a verse and then you have to start ALL OVER!!! You have to read Sophie "Are you my mother"..the boys really like that one too.

Go Dog has officially been lost/hidden in my house because if I read it one more time I may lose all sanity! I am going to attempt to email you or call you to find out if we are still meeting in the morning. I am not sure I ever got a definate :)

I have yet to read the long version to my kids. So far they only like the "Ten Apples Up on Top" and "Are You My Mother".

I agree with Susie. My kids from pre-school could barely make it through three quarters of the books.
