5.0 out of 5 stars Colorful rhymes with colorful illustrations 17 April 1998
By A Customer
Format:Board book
Dr. Suess is one of the greatest poets for kids. Some of his greatest books are "The Cat and the Hat" and "Green Eggs and Ham". All of his books has easy to read; the print is just as bold as the words and pictures in all of his books including this one"There's a Wocket in My Pocket". I have read all of the Dr. Suess books
and they all make children want to learn
to read, and have fun doing it. This book especially the great rhyme,almost sing-songy, helps children want to read along and follow the superb illustrations in the book too. The pictures look almost like hand-colored pencil drawings which makes it so fresh and lively for the children to want to read this book. I absolutely recommend this book along with all of the other Dr.Suess books; it's not only fun for the children it is also fun reading for the parents. Just about any age can really sit down and enjoy a Dr. Suess book like "There's a Wocket in My Pocket" just because it is pure fun to do so.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming Small Book 23 April 2013
By Dr. Bojan Tunguz TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Board book
From some other reviews I've gathered that this is not the full original version of "There's a Wocket in My Pocket," but I don't find this to be a major issue for me. I've never read the original, and only wanted to get a classic children's literature read for my infant son. Dr. Seuss's books are invariably playful, whimsical and charming, and this one is no exception. They can be a lot of fun to read. The little ones who are just learning to speak a playful rhyming sentences can be really attractive. Our son is still too young to fully understand what even the "regular" words mean, so we read him this book mostly in order to expose him to the very act of reading. For that purpose this small book is more than adequate. It's much smaller than most other board books that we own, and even the smallest infant can hold it relatively easily. It's also very durable and can withstand many months and years of infant abuse. A true treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, beautiful , book. 1 May 2006
By young man VINE VOICE
Format:Board book
This book fits neatly in to your nappy bag/handbag etc and is a great fun book to carry for those times when you are stuck waiting at the doctors/dentist etc.

It is a sturdy design and my copy has survived two rough and tumble boys that have loved it.

It is short enough to be the "just one more then" story at bed time that they always beg for and is fun.

The words are simple and the rhyme is great for learning to read. Another winner from Dr Seuss.

5.0 out of 5 stars A happy, fun book about silly friends living in your house 18 April 1998
By mms - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
I laughed when Amazon.com's review page inquired, "Have you read this book?" Quickly, I thought to myself, "Only about 7 or 8 times -- a day." This charming, sturdy book is bound to fascinate children with its lilting, rhyming phrases describing silly friends the reader, and listener, can discover throughout the house. Dr. Suess's signature silly words make babies and young toddlers giggle when they realize that the Wocket in their pocket not really a word at all, but a pretend word. Babies are quick to recognize which words are "real" words and which are for fun. The interplay of the two makes them smile. [And who does't love a baby's smile, especially after the third time through the book that morning.] For older toddlers, the quick read inspires creative thinking about the other characters who may live in your house, while providing a nice explanation or names for any "monsters" who may live in a closet or under the bed. There's a Wocket in my Pocket should be a staple in any young child's library, even if you have to hide for a day to regain your sanity.

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT the book you know and love! 15 Sep 2005
By Tiffany Holley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
This is a nice enough board book, but be advised that it is NOT the full version of Dr. Seuss' book! They've left out several (charming!) pages of text and illustrations for the Board Book... What a disappointment to loyal fans, and how unfair to the newest generation of fans-to-be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still fun, after 200 reads! 20 Feb 2005
By Natasha - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
I'm an au pair for an 18 month old boy and he absolutely LOVES this book! He requests me to read it numerous times a day, several times in a row. This has been going on for over two months now, so I would recommend this book for any toddler who is already showing an interest in books. I still haven't gotten tired of reading it, and it's fun to come up with new ways of reading it to him; the story is fun in itself -- for both him and I. He loves the long "teller, weller, beller, geller, etc. in the cellar" which I speed read through and he always laughs at. And then, with "the yottle in the bottle whom I do not wish to keep," he always shakes his head right along with me. Another plus is that I have memorized the book by now, and if he begins to get fussy (e.g. when getting his diaper changed, or on the way home after a tiring excursion) I can recite it to him and it usually improves his mood quite a bit! I would highly recommend this book to any parent or caregiver. Out of the three Dr. Seuss boardbooks we have so far (the others being Mr. Brown Can Moo and The ABC Book), this is by far my favorite, and his too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lost some wockets from it's pocket 27 July 2009
By Deborah Verlen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
Our family has loved the original version of this book, so we got the board book for the grandchildren. It was a disappointment. The changes they made to it do affect the 'flavor' of the story. If your child is used to the original version, they will be disappointed in this pared down book. If they haven't grown up with the original, this book will probably be fine for them.

4.0 out of 5 stars A funny book about made-up monsters 15 Dec 2001
By heather - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
This is a great book for kids who are afraid of what lies behind their starircase or under their bed. It makes up silly names for mosters and its shows that they aren't mean or scary just funny looking. It's not only a great book for kids who are afraid of monsters but for any kid who loves to read books that rhyme and joke around.
