Our Favorite Dr. Seuss Books List

We have an amazing library near us, and the children’s library is impressive.

We are quite lucky!

As I’ve gotten to know the head librarian, imagine my surprise when she admitted to me that she doesn’t like Dr. Seuss!

What?!? Oh yes, no everyone likes the over-the-top silliness of Dr. Seuss.

And I have to admit — I’m one of them.

His stories that have stuck with me over the years are the ones with heart.

One of the first books I sat down and read to my boys (and is still my personal favorite) is Yertle the Turtle.

I could read that story over and over and never get bored.

Meanwhile my boys love Horton Hears a Who and Green Eggs and Ham.

My father, on the other hand, would argue that If I Ran the Zoo is by far the best one.

  2. We love all of these but especially Green Eggs and Ham!

  3. And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street is one of our favorites, but we love most of them. Pinned!
