A silly book with a serious purpose—to help children recognize, remember, and really enjoy using a basic vocabulary of 1350 words. Written and illustrated by P. D. Eastman—with help from the Cat (Dr. Seuss)—this decades-old dictionary pairs words with pictures that carry their meaning, making it simple enough even for nonreaders to understand. A wacky cast of characters reappears throughout the book, making this perhaps the only dictionary in the world that is actually fun to read!

over a thousand elementary words from 'Aaron' the alligator to a nest full of
'zyxuzpf' birds. The book gets a large 'A' for its commonsense-through-nonsense
approach to reading." "The New York Times.
