I’d say this is probably one of the best known of Dr Seuss’ books, and it’s a lot of fun. There’s a loose tying together from the very first and last sentences:
From there to here,
from here to there,
from here to there
funny things are everywhere.
but otherwise the double page spreads rarely have much to do with each other. (There are a recurring girl and boy.) I’d say that this might help this book be a good one for a new reader who hasn’t yet got the stamina for a whole book, as they could get a lot from each couple of pages, without losing out on the flow of a story. This being Dr Seuss, you know the pictures and words are rhythmic and funny for children and adults.
