Nearly every English-speaker would know Dr. Seuss.  An American writer and illustrator, he is behind several of the most popular children’s books, selling over 600 million copies.  Read more about him over on Wikipedia:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr._Seuss

His books were also translated into many other languages – have you ever read a Dr Seuss book in a language other than English?  I’d love to know about it in the comments!

For kids, there are many ways to practice and improve their English with Dr Seuss books.  They love the rhythm and rhyme of the stories.  Though there are many words that are completely made up, it doesn’t seem to bother them or affect language development!

YouTube has countless versions of Dr Seuss books, here’s someone reading one of my daughter’s favourites: Red Fish, Blue Fish

There’s also movies based on the books.  This one freaked out one of my girls a little though, so you’ll need to decide if it’s ok for your children!

My favourite is The Lorax:

I particularly love the underlying messages in much of his work, including the need to care for trees in The Lorax.

There is also a great official website the kids may enjoy: http://www.seussville.com

So all in all, Dr Seuss books, movies and more will offer hours and hours of education and entertainment for those wishing to practice and improve English!
