If so you’ll know that meme is 100% accurate. However, since today is Dr. Seuss’ birthday I’m here to talk about a different annoying sound – that which comes from discovering what the fox says . . . Wrong again, but it’s almost as aggravating. In case you are someone who is far removed [...]
This is my favorite Dr. Suess book of all time. That’s because my mom couldn’t read it. I meane could read most of it. But when she got to the Bim bends Ben’s broom, she’d start tripping up. Then she’d start to laugh, and she laughed so hard a couple of times tears came to her eyes. I loved my mom’s laughter. Consequently, I used to pick up this book almost every night. I think she hid it for a while. So can YOU read this out loud?Bim comes.Ben comes.Bim brings Ben broom.Ben brings B [...]
Poor Knox cringes and begs for mercy. "Please, sir. I don't like this trick, sir." But Fox refuses to relent. "Here's an easy game to play," he whispers - but his wordplay is more than games. It's an assault on Knox's very sanity, and as the book progresses he slowly, cruelly tears the fabric of reality away from the defenseless Knox. An unending series of nightmare images parade by, reminiscent of brainwashing scenes in dystopias like 1984 and Clockwork Orange.a giant crow sews Knox into a boxo [...]
Dr. Seuss will drive you crazy with his silly questions.

‘Dr Seuss’ being the pen name under which Theodor Seuss Geisel wrote (taking his middle name and making full use of his Oxford University PhD in English literature) was the American born grandson of German immigrants to the US. Beginning his career in the late 1920’s as an illustrator and cartoonist, it wasn’t until nearly 30 years later that Seuss produced his classic series of children’s books that so many of us know and love.Never having the benefit of the books of Dr Seuss when I w [...]
This is one of our favorite Dr. Seuss books. One of the best tongue twister books I've ever read. We've read it several times and for some reason the six sick part always messes me up. I'm pretty smooth up until then. The more I read out loud to my kids, the more I realize I read ahead. I see a word and digest it, then as I'm saying it out loud, I'm already reading the next couple of words. With this book, that's difficult to do, because I often have to go back a word or two because I've forgott [...]
Because Mockingjay was so intellectually vapid and emotionally bland I have to work my way back into books. Thus: Fox in Socks! He's a clever fox you know.
one of my kids favorites, they love having me try to read it and then read it fast. TONGUE TWISTERS!
fun tongue twisting read!
I don't know what to rate this book!!!I read this aloud to a 3-year-old I was babysitting, and I died. At the beginning of the book, it says "danger." I should have been warned "Fox in Socks" is a book full of tongue twisters, and long too. My mouth died. 62 times for 62 pages.
A true classic, this children’s book engages the imaginative minds of young readers with its rhyming, tongue-twisting story. Still the best.
The Seuss I read tonightI'm going to start reading this every night. And I'm going to time myself. My new goal in life is to always beat my previous best time. Ambitious, I know. I read it to my daughters 3 times tonight, each time faster than the last. What a rush.I'll tell you what's messing me up It's those brooms that Ben and Bim are carring around. They're REALLY bugging me.
This book will either help emerging readers be better able to pronounce potentially confusing words, or drive them insane. I experienced a little of both! I do remember having fun while this was read to me, though.
In Fox in Socks, Dr. Seuss poses a treacherous, but delightful linguistic challenge for adults and children alike. It is also the only work by the famous children's author prefaced with a warning: "This book is DANGEROUS!" Through a series of vignettes on diverse subjects, Dr. Seuss melds his trademark silliness with near-lethal tongue twisters, including a variant on the infamous "The sixth sick sheik's sixth sheep's sick."Fox in Socks offers lots of opportunities for grownups. Read it in bed w [...]
This is an evil kid's book, for sure. Pick it up and you'll be condemned to a near eternity of grueling tongue twisters. And your kid will love it Not because it's one of Seuss's masterpieces, but because he or she will enjoy watching you sweat like a hog as you labor from page to page and go purple in the face while you silently (with any luck) curse yourself for buying the thing.[shelf: evil-kids-books]
This book could be my childhood. I remember many evenings that my brother & I would choose "Fox in Socks" for our nightly bedtime read.
Aaha classic. It's impossible to read the tweetle beetle bottle battle out loud without dissolving into giggles.
My favorite book, ever. When I was youngest, I would ask my brother to read it out loud to me. When I was older, I would read it to myself, trying to memorize the rhythmic poetry of the crazy fox's shenanigans. Maybe this is why there's a talking fox in my second novel? Hmm. pieces of the puzzle fit together.
I have accomplished many amazing things in my life, and I will be honest, reading this book was one of the hardest of them! If you are up for the challenging rhymes of the AMAZING Dr.Seuss, than this book is for you!
This was a book I was sure I'd get tired and annoyed with after repeated readings, but somehow I haven't. It has enough different "scenes" and characters to keep the book moving and interesting (unlike Green Eggs and Ham), and it's enough of a challenge that I enjoy seeing how well I can read the tongue twisters without feeling like I'm being tortured. Mr. Knox was a brilliant addition though. He serves as my uptight inner critic who doesn't entirely want to be there, but can't seem to tear hims [...]
This book was hard but fun to read because of all the rhyming words. I think all readers would enjoy this book. My favorite part is"We'll find something new to do now. Here is lots of blue goo now. New goo. Blue goo. Gooey. Gooey. Blue goo. New goo. Gluey. Gluey. Gooey goo for chewy chewing! That's what that Goo-Goose is doing. Do you choose to chew goo, too, sir? If, sir, you, sir, choose to chew sir, with the Goo-Goose, chew, sir. Do, sir." That is REALLY HARD to say! (A special thanks to my m [...]
Clearly written on a day in which Dr. Seuss was annoyed by the wild, shrieking, running children who so often inhabit public places, Seuss has here his sweet, cranky revenge. It's awful to read and it never gets easier, and it never gets less funny to the kid to hear their parent stumble over the words."Six sick bricks tick. Six sick chicks tock."There was no need for that Seuss, none. I control my offspring in public places. Why punish us all?
This is a real tongue twisting, head busting, frantic rhyming story that only Dr Seuss could possible get away with. I love the full colour artwork, slightly more vibrant than his other work that I remember reading, so far
Going back and reading this as a mum is so different from how I remember this book as a child.Not a good choice for a very tired mummy!! It slowed me down when I wanted to speed up!! Lots of fun to read. My little treasure loves it.
One of the most fun Seuss books to read aloud, in my humble opinion.
Reading this book out loud is torture. Reading it 18 times in a row to a 3 year old is unspeakable. I think he wrote this book as a cruel prank toward parents.
Mommy was feeling pretty smug about her tongue twister skills for the first few pages, but things went south quickly.
Druss teaches us lesons. In this book he teaches us that we,re not dumb no body is.If you can,t read this book aloud your not dumb.
A really amazing tongue twister :)
