      "Great for the Road"

      We downloaded this for a Thanksgiving week 1600 mile road trip with a four and two year old. I thought they wouldn't enjoy the stories without the pictures in front of them, but they couldn't get enough. Definitely helped to fill the time, and entertained the adults enough, too.

      No, it's not a substitute for the books with pictures, but definitely worth it for travel. Also a good value for the number of books on this program.

      "The individual books are bookmarked"

      Contrary to what a previous reviewer said, the individual books all have chapter markers so you can jump directly to a particular book if you know the chapter number.

      "Your kids will love it!"

      I bought this audiobook for a car trip to disney, but ended up using it daily. There are enough stories to keep them interested and the length is perfect for the longer errands around town.

      "Ageless!"

      I bought this (these) book(s) for ME! Used to read them to my children when they were younger than my grandchildren are now. Dr. Seuss is the Man! Good listening for all ages. You can't grow up until you understand all the messages he presents to be a better human being. I still listen...what fun is growing up anyway?!

      "Good, but....."

      The source material is unquestionably good; the readings are *mostly* very good; the music is intrusive, superfluous, and frankly, grating. Dustin Hoffman is the best of the bunch, showing incredible class and demonstrating that he is an Actor (capital A) even when reading "Horton Hears a Who". Not bad for a car trip, but you'll miss the pictures.

      "Finding the Book"

      It goes without saying the books are great but I don't care for the format. My son is four and knows which book he wants to hear. This format does not allow you to skip to a specific book.

      "What is it with the music???????"

      Why spoil great reading and a wonderful book with loud silly music throughout? Someone has been watching too much bad video. Dr. Seuss did not write this with background music.

      "Great for the car"

      My Daughter loves this in the car - keeps her quiet on long trips and therefore worth every cent.
      Some of the stories are very well read by great readers.
      Highly recommended

      "A Classic Favorite..Even Better"
      If you could sum up The Cat in the Hat and Other Dr. Seuss Favorites in three words, what would they be?

      I didn't think Dr. Suess could be made better, this audio did just that!


      Who was your favorite character and why?

      This was a compilation of favorite stories, so there was something for everyone. Each story was read by a different celebrity. Dustin Hoffman reads Horton Hears a Who, etc.


      Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

      I can't choose, I really can't. Although, How the Grinch Stole XMas is my favorite story, of all time!!


      Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

      No, dole it out slowly. Listen to a couple of stories at a time, and enjoy.


      Any additional comments?

      Nope.

      "Great if you have the books"

      A large part of the appeal of Dr Seuss books is the strange and fantastic pictures that accompany the rhymes. Obviously you are not going to get these with an audio book. I would therefore recommend this only once you have got the books. That way your child and you can really enjoy the thorough nonsense of the Seuss phenomenon.
