9780001712881: The Eye Book (Bright and Early Books)

In this delightful book, Dr. Seuss introduces the youngest children to the concept of sight and seeing, looking at a range of everyday things from colours and cutlery to socks and underpants! This title belongs to Dr. Seuss's Bright and Early Beginner Book series, designed 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!

Review:

"My eyes see. His eyes see. I see him. And he sees me." With text as simple as simple can be, Theo. LeSieg (a.k.a. Theodore Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss) uses humor and rhythm to encourage the very youngest children to discover the joy of reading. A big-eyed boy and a pink-eyed rabbit cavort through the book, seeing everything there is to see: a girl, a horse, an old tin can, the sun, the moon--even pink underpants (which makes them both blush). Rhyming objects give the brief "story" a lilting, happy cadence, and Joe Mathieu's cartoonish colorful pictures provide easy clues to the text. This is a friendly introduction to the wide, wondrous world of seeing and reading.

An offspring of the world-famous Beginner Books, Bright and Early Books for Beginning Beginners are designed for an even younger age group. Even preschoolers will be inspired to learn to read with these witty, appealing picture books. (Ages 2 to 5) --Emilie Coulter

From the Inside Flap:

"Our eyes see flies.
Our eyes see ants.
Sometimes they see
pink underpants.
Oh, say can you see? Dr. Seuss's hilarious ode to eyes gives little ones a whole new appreciation for all the wonderful things to be seen!
