Small children will delight in making the connection between words and pictures, as a mischievous mouse shows Mr. Bird around a “People House”, pointing out all the everyday things to be found, from peanuts and paper to scissors and string.
This title belongs to the Bright and Early Beginner Book series, developed by Dr. Seuss especially for “Beginning Beginners” – preschool children on the threshhold of learning to read. Using an exuberant combination of bright, bold pictures and rhythmic rhyme, Dr. Seuss introduces simple stories and concepts, adding a large helping of zany humour to help the youngest child make the all important connection between word and picture.
Originally published under the pseudonym of Theo. LeSieg, The Eye Book is being relaunched with a stylish new cover design which reveals, for the first time, the true identity of the author – Dr. Seuss himself!
