First of all I have to say: KatherineB, your review made me laugh so hard! My dad wouldn't have appreciated a reenactment either!

"Hop On Pop" is one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books! So funny! It was a blast from the past reading it again as an adult. The last page is pretty cute and I loved the last message in the yellow box.

Today, I realised that I've never completely understood the genius behind changing the initial consonant. An aspiring reader will work on one letter shift while confidently following the second half of the term that repeats over and over. Perhaps better, formatting places words on top of each other so that the reader can see precisely where the word shifts and where it remains the same. The illustrations perfectly explain the text and the books can be enjoyed by both adults and children. If you are forced to read a book, I recommended this, especially for children 3-7 years. Another Dr. Seuss masterpiece that was beautifully written, Overall very well done book. 4/5 stars

Hop on Pop, by Dr. Seuss, is a very fun and enjoyable read! The rhyming gives the story lots of personality, and can make learning how to read seem less intimidating, and more fun! I like the quirky writing style, and thought that the fun, tongue-twisting sentences made the story very engaging! I really enjoyed this book, as I think that, to a certain degree, it can also be relatable to younger readers. I would definitely recommend that other readers, especially younger audiences, give this book a try, as Dr. Seuss simply has a classic way of keeping kids entertained! 4/5 stars

Some serious tongue twisters in this book.

While slightly dated, this remains a terrific book for introducing simple words and rhymes to young children.

Silly rhymes and catchy repetition make this, “the simplest Seuss for youngest use.”

A personal childhood favorite. My poor father did not appreciate my attempts at reenacting the story.
