About the Author
Theodor Seuss Geisel – better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss – was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children’s books, and his first book – And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street – was published in 1937. His greatest claim to fame was the one and only The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a hugely successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books.

A great read for beginners too.
Gerald doesn't talk, only makes noises, though eventually they stop becoming a hindrance and make his fortune.
The illustrations are old-fashioned. In the sense that the period is quite 50s - dad's razor, radio audiences - the context gives lots to talk about with children. It's also quite American - public school and freight. But easy enough to explain.
The rhymes bounce along and there are lots of opportunities to make silly sounds for Gerald.
We aren't at the reading stage yet but I would definitely want Dr Seuss around when the time comes for my son to try books more independently.
