Format: Paperback
This Dr. Suess masterpiece has a clear message: Through reading you will find out lots of things! You don't want to miss anything, so keep at least one eye open. Some of the long, roll-off-your-tounge words included in this book are Mississippi and Indianapolis, which I had to explain to my boys. And of course there are some nonsense critters as well. This book can be read in under 5 minutes with both your eyes open. Good for ages 3-6, I reckon.

This is a fabulous book that every parent should read with their children!
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. I Can Read with My Eyes Shut! was one of her picks.
To me, the brilliance of this book is in its title. This book encourages children to memorize this book. My four children all began to learn to read by first memorizing books. Then they could begin to match what they had memorized with words on the page. The next step was to then identify the word and be able to say it in an unmemorized book. Finally, they could read alone. Memorization is a key step, and I notice that many first-time parents don't realize that. Dr. Seuss provides the big clue here for children and parents. The choice of long words with funny sounds is particularly clever as a way to encourage memorizing. Who could decode Mississippi, Indianapolis, Hallelujah, Schenectady, and Wilkes-Barre the first time they saw them? Putting the place names on signs on a road emphasizes the child's obvious interest in becoming a driver some day. Brilliant!
Aside from the theme, the book has the great qualities of all Dr. Seuss's books for learning to read. There's lots of repetition.

This excellent book is both repetitive and fun, and has been a great help in helping my daughter learn to read. School reading books are "boring" and this is just the opposite - eccentric, funny and lively paced. The repetetive elements of the book are brilliant at improving and encouraging fledgling readers, and have helped to build my daughter's confidence in her own reading ability. It's a really worthwhile book to aid early reading and surprisingly it's a book about reading to help with reading.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my 6 year old nephew. Having opened the book for the first time, I found myself reading the pages, once, twice and gradually realised the beauty of the words as I was not reading but singing the words. I read the book at least 10 times before post it to my newphew. This book is not just an introduction to reading but also to the pleasure of poetry. It has abeautiful ending telling the child why he/she should read. I would suggest the ideal age for this book is 4 or 5. From educational points of view the rythm and the words are put so skillfully together that a youngster will remember the words for sometime or even for life. Reading this book is a nostalgic part of childhood. My nephew has read the book countlessly so as his parents and his great parents. This book is fun and I will treat myself to a copy as a Xmas Present.
