About the Author

Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904. After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising. His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!, appeared in several leading American magazines.
Dr. Seuss's first children's book, And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever!
In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best- selling series, Beginner Books. This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills.
Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped kids learn to read.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and three Academy Awards, Seuss was the author and illustrator of 44 children's books, some of which have been made into audiocassettes, animated television specials, and videos for children of all ages. Even after his death in 1991, Dr. Seuss continues to be the best-selling author of children's books in the world.

No plot or character development, just a joy to read aloud and point at the illustrations. My 2 year old loves reciting it with me.

my grandson LOVES his books and this early reader with its simple rhymes and colorful characters is a new favorite.

I ordered a bunch of Dr. Suess here and only one waas the full sized book. The other 4 were baby books with the cardboard pages. I was thinking it was the original form. Bummer.

The classic Dr Seuss book is now a board book! It is great! It takes some of the story out, but for kids that love board books, its is an OK length. If you want the entire book, get the paperback edition. If you are wondering what to get a baby/toddler for a gift, this is perfect. And its a good price so you can buy more than one!

It's a perfect gift. Easy to read during those brief moments while you're bending over to pick up something and durable for baby's hands to attempt to grab. A classic made practical!

My 20 month old daughter loves this book. We have this version, and her grandparents have the full sized longer version so she gets this read to her all the time. Months ago she started saying "hop pop!" whenever she wanted to read this book. It's one of her favorites, and I love that the rhyming helps her learn the words.

My two-year-old grandson LOVES these smaller versions of Dr. Seuss classics. They are shorter so they hold his attention, the flow of the words is just as great and the pages are thicker like his other little books. Great for him to hold - he likes to take them in bed with him at nap time. They're the perfect alternative to the traditional Dr. Seuss books which are really geared for older children.

My son is already speaking quite a bit but we find him actually reading this book outloud. This is great to teach the basics of reading and sounding out similar words!

well i own a copy of this book from when i was like three years old. it is a very good childrens book for children ages 3-6. i like the story line alot and it has to be one of my favorite books by this autor. infact its my favorite book of all. if i had the choice to read misery by stephen king or hop on pop i would def read hop on pop. OMG it is such a good book. i cant getover how much dialouge is used and how good the word choice is. it is the most mature book out there.
and if u are looking to read a good book but not use all of your spare time reading it. hop on pop is the book for you!!!!.

Since my son has read this book with his mom, I get much more rough attention from him. He'll sneak up and pouce on me and begin to laugh. I'm glad he's only seven and 53 lbs.

"Hop on Pop" is a popular book for children. It is very fun and exciting to read. This book has great rhyming patters and funny to children as they read along.

Dr. Seuss goes over a bunch of easy words with the same ending and different starting letters.
ceoliver on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
This book is funny because of all the rhyming words. It would be good for younger kids because the words aren't very long and it could teach them about ryhming. It would be fun to have kids come up with their own words that rhyme.

Hop On Pop has pictures that support the text. This is great for beginning readers to get clues from the pictures to figure out the words. This book even uses some silliness to keep the reader engaged (cup on pup). Reading Hop on Pop using the LeapPad technology with this story gives this book new dimension. This is a way to interact with the book as well as read it. For struggling readers this is a way to find out what a word is quickly and get the story read without having to stop.You can also choose to play a short game on each page that promotes learning phonemic sounds.

"Hop on Pop" is another one of Dr. Seuss's silly books for very young children. It is a collection of strange off the wall rhymes filled with Dr. Seuss's signature illustrations. I like to read this book to my kids. They think it is cute. For the classroom, I would ask my students if they could think of any other rhymes that could be added to this book.

This book discusses the many ways of getting to know more words. Children who read this book will have no problem getting the rhyming pattern down and will then be able to read all the words by just the sound. This book is a great beginner book. There really is not a specific plot in book or charecter there are many different. This book mainly focuses on the variety of ways in teaching children to read.An extention idea for this book would be just reading to the children aloud and discussing what happened in the book.

This book is a poetic book in that it rhymes. It has simple words in it like up, all, and red and their rhyming words pup, fall, and bed. The illustrations go along with the rhyme being made.I really liked this book and I think it is a good book for children to learn how to rhyme and learn how poems are made. The illustrations are very good and brightly colored that draw the reader in. Also, it isn¿t that long of a book so it is pretty easy to get through.In the classroom, I would use the rhyming words in this book to make a classroom poem. I would put the words up on the board with their rhyming words and give each student one or two of the words and have them write a sentence using them. Before they write their sentences, as a class we will pick a topic to make our poem about.

I was expecting the full size version like the other Seuss books.

This is a fun book to read. My daughter loves all the activities going on in the pictures, we spend a lot of time just talking about 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. With only a sentence or two on each page, the little ones stay interested.

Our 17 month old has caught on very quickly to the familiar words in this book. Although Dr. Seuss can be annoying at times to us adults, the rhyming and silliness are completely enjoyed by our daughter. And it's short enough to read several times over!
