By hfffoman TOP 500 REVIEWER on 3 April 2015
Format: Paperback
This is not just the usual imaginative silliness from Dr Seuss, it is perfect for reading aloud. The script is simple but just right for giving a range of expression. I and my little audience have had fun with it again and again.

Format: Paperback
Another delightful Dr Seuss marvel.
A simple instruction to a guest who has outstayed his welcome is put into the wonderful poetry unique to
Dr Seuss, that is a delight to children around the world, as well as to adults who are young at heart.
Dr Seuss introduces some of the marvelous technological inventions of his world, such as a Zike-Bike, a Crunk-Car, a Zumble-Zay, a Bumble-Boat and a Gazoom.
It is a great way of teaching children reading and language, and as �go� is one of the first words children learn to recognize, this teaches the meanings in a really fun way.

By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 20 May 2004
Format: Paperback
Researchers constantly find that reading to children is valuable in a variety of ways, not least of which are instilling a love of reading and improved reading skills. With better parent-child bonding from reading, your child will also be more emotionally secure and able to relate better to others. Intellectual performance will expand as well. Spending time together watching television fails as a substitute.
To help other parents apply this advice, as a parent of four I consulted an expert, our youngest child, and asked her to share with me her favorite books that were read to her as a young child. Marvin K. Mooney, Will You Please Go Now! was one of her picks.
Marvin K. Mooney is an excellent choice of a beginning reader after your child has read about 20 books and is ready for something just a little more challenging. The reason I say that is because there are a number of Dr. Seuss's imaginary creatures and inventions in here, so the illustrations don't totally tell you what the words are. For example, you will see a Ga-Zoom, a Bumble-Boat, a Zumble-Zay, and a Crunk-Car. These are, by the way, the most witty and imaginative illustrations as well.
The fun of the story relates to an impatient adult (displayed by an arm and a hand wearing a watch) who wants Marvin K. Mooney to go. Marvin just listens until the end, when he goes. It isn't clear if Marvin K. Mooney is the child of the hand or the child's friend whose parent wants him to leave. It doesn't really matter. I lean towards the latter explanation. But we all know how adults like to say the whole name of a child to let them know the adult is very serious.
Yet, the book isn't serious at all in any other way.

I learned to read with this book and I will never forget that. I always loved this story as a little girl and now I can't wait to share it with my kids.

A true classic, my wife and I could read this every night. The rhymes and illustrations are perfect. A great book for younger readers as well.

I learned to read on Marvin! My copy was given to the local library after I "outgrew" it.
