Dr. Seuss's Fox in Socks has been troubling tongues—and garnering giggles—since 1965. Written specifically to be read aloud, it features a tricky fox in socks and the progressively more difficult tongue-twisting games he plays on his exasperated friend Mr. Knox. Now available for the first time in an abridged, sturdy, board book edition, this beloved classic will have babies of all ages laughing with—and at—their parents as they struggle, like Knox, to blab such blibber blubber as muddle puddle tweetle poodle beetle noodle bottle paddle battle!

This version of the book is much shorter and easier to read then the full version. It's a lot of fun to read these tongue twisters and my daughter likes all the pictures. These board books are very sturdy, they're the perfect size for babies and toddlers. Also the pages are easy for my daughter to turn.
