The Cat in the Hat and Other Dr. Seuss Favorites

By Dr. Seuss
Narrated by Billy Crystal, Walter Matthau, Dustin Hoffman, and others
Ages 4 to 8, $20

Dr. Seuss's delicious rhythms and rhymes make for great entertainment coming out of the mouths of well-known actors. Dustin Hoffman reads Horton Hears a Who, Ted Danson narrates The Lorax, and Kelsey Grammer reads The Cat in the Hat, to name just a few. The Cat in the Hat and Other Dr. Seuss Favorites is also that rare audiobook that's a bargain compared to buying hard copies of the many titles it includes.

Bottom line: A deal for the Dr. Seuss devoted.

Comments from readers

"Why why WHY do Twilight and Harry Potter have to be on that list? Everyone has heard of them, they have been mentioned to death. Bring on some new, fresh ideas for reluctant readers."
"My son who is in 1st grade was reluctant reader till he watched all Harry Potter movies and read 2 books in 10 days and now on his 3rd book. I am thankful to author for writing for such interesting books which children can related to. He also took AR test and got 70%. "
