Dr Seuss' Book
of Nonsense Verse:
There's a Wocket in My Pocket
Dr Seuss' funny poems help kids develop a love of language through creative word play, nonsense words and catchy rhymes. This book has giggle-inducing lines such as wocket in my pocket, zelf on my shelf, zlock behind my clock, nureau in my bureau, nink in my sink, quimney up my chimney...
Let yourself go with this one. It's pure, silly fun. Read it aloud with your children and have a great time laughing over the nonsensical text. Kids have loved the book since it was first published in 1974.
What's even better, is that - as with all of Seuss' books - children actually learn language while enjoying the zany, fun-filled kids' poetry in this book. Kids like the nonsense words, and progress from reading them to making up their own; along the way, they discover the joy of language and the music of words.
The book comes in two versions: an original unabridged version, and a board book (abridged) edition. Be sure to get the right book for your child. The original version is more satisfying for older children, as it contains the full text. The board book version, on the other hand, is meant for younger kids; it has the text shortened to suit the attention span of babies and toddlers.
One of the most popular children's books for decades, with 1.5 million copies sold. Get the book from Amazon.com:
