    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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?!

    "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.

    My four year old listens to this in the car, at bedtime, and just for a rest. Love the different voices!

    "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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Cat in the Hat Rocks"
    What made the experience of listening to The Cat in the Hat and Other Dr. Seuss Favorites the most enjoyable?

    My boys (aged 2 and 5) love this book. The characterizations that the different actors give make them want to listen to it over and over. They love listening to it while they are playing, laying down, and in the car. They've got some of it memorized because of the actors. They love it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The boys loved everything.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    The different voices, the rhymning, pretty much everything.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No

    "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.
