So Cute!

This is a really cute short introduction to the amazing world of Dr. Seuss! I think this would be a great short story for a kid to listen to and then maybe they'll get interested in making their own series.

A Fun Short Seussian History of Seuss

This was just like a Dr. Seuss book but it's about the history of Dr. Seuss. If you a Dr. Seuss fan this is a fun short listen, just like a Dr. Seuss book.

Now I want to listen to more Dr. Seuss

Note at the time of this review this did not have chapter titles.

This book was provided for free, however, this is my honest opinion and review.

A charming little (audio)book.

This is a really quick listen, but so cute! I never knew the story of Dr Seuss. If you read his books as a kid, this is a good place to learn about how he became the Dr Seuss we know and love.

I Highly Recommend this Book!

It’s easy to see that this book was inspired
To tell of an author and all that transpired.

His life was a tale of rejection and strife
He traveled the world before taking a wife.

This book by Ms. Brown has been such a delight.
A child would enjoy this both morning and night!

An amazing short story you've never heard of!

This interesting and surprising historical review of how Dr.Seuss came to be is a must listen! I learned several new things and thoroughly enjoyed the storytelling and the narrators use of classic Dr. Seuss catchphrases.

Incredible Biography

This incredible book tells us the entire story of Dr. Seuss' life in few thought out and well organized words. It was interesting, impressive and informative all wrapped up in a tiny little package. Not too many writers can say so much in so little. To top it off it has rhyme and reason. I am very impressed.

Fun Bio

I’ve always wanted to know more about Dr. Seuss and I’m glad this book did so in a way to honor him. Rhyming. Just wish it was longer!

Interesting idea

A short biography written in the style of Dr Seuss, I enjoyed this and have listened to it a few times. The narration was ok but could have done with a bit more passion in places.

I received this book for free in return for my honest review.

Really Good Fun

Written in the style of Dr. Seuss himself, this leads you on a lovely little journey throughout his life. It’s worth a repeat listen.
