Wolf Reads #27

In honour of Dr. Seuss’ birthday (which was yesterday), here are some of his best — or at least my favourite — books.

Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

191139

Goodreads rating: 4.35

Whenever life gets you down, this book will definitely pull you up making you feel so energised that you’re bound to blast any barrier in front of you to smithereens. (Although the best time to read this is when you’ve just graduated from school.) Hey, there’s a reason that it’s rated so highly on Goodreads.

The Lorax

7784

Goodreads rating: 4.35

Dr. Seuss was a powerful voice during the environmental movement of the 1970s. At least, I hope it was. Anyway, I love this book because although it appeals to both kids and adults (you’re never too old for some Dr. Seuss), it targets children — the next generation. We are told to change the world before it’s too late. I think that’s an important message to ingrain into every youngling’s head.

Green Eggs and Ham

23772

Goodreads rating: 4.30

There are two main reasons I love this book:

  1. It taught me everything I know about annoying my sister (Sam-I-Am was one of my childhood role models).
  2. The unnamed character (the guy that Sam-I-Am pesters) is so darn relatable. I mean, someone badgers him to try a dish that he clearly doesn’t want to try. When he does taste a morsel in the end, he ends up loving it. That’s the admirable thing about the unnamed character. When I was younger, I’d pretend that I hated the food just to fuel my ego. That totally doesn’t happen now.
