Fox in Socks - Dr. Seuss
Disadvantages: tongue twisters
I first came across Dr Seuss when my children were small, the cat in the hat caught my attention and my childrens, so it was only a matter of time before one of my children suggested i buy some Dr Seuss books for bedtime rading whenever I have my grandchildren to sleep over and tonight is one of those last minute baby sitting session, you know when your daughter rings and says. I've been invited out last minute, pleaseeee mum can you look after your grandchild tonight ? ( I don't like to write too much information about my family online so i won't mention my grandsons name)
The book i bought last week from The Works book shop was Fox in Socks - Dr. Seuss for a cheap price of 99p.
The book tells the story of a red fox in blue socks,the words rhyming through out the book quickly grab a childs attention and my grandson can often be heard quoting parts of the book as he's playing so it does entertain very well.
As you go through the book , the characters become introduced to you and more are added towards the end of the book, its a fast pace and funny too with great colourful illustratiions that children love to look at as your reading the story.
The book comes with a warning which grabs a childs attention from the beginning. "Take it slowly. This book is dangerous."
trying to read it the first time is so funny if you get your words muddled like I do sometimes, this is a thing with age so reading it slowly at first is advised. The tongue twisters get tougher.
Here are just some of the words you will have to get your toungue around :-
Well then... bring your mouth this way.
I'll find it something it can say.
Luke Luck likes lakes.
Luke's duck likes lakes.
Luke Luck licks lakes.
Luck's duck licks lakes.
Duck takes licks in lakes Luke Luck likes.
Luke Luck takes licks in lakes duck likes.
I can't blab such blibber blubber!
My tongue isn't make of rubber.
Mr. Knox. Now come now. Come now.
You don't have to be so dumb now....
Try to say this, Mr. Knox, please....
Through three cheese trees three free fleas flew.
While these fleas flew, freezy breeze blew.
Freezy breeze made these three trees freeze.
Freezy trees made these trees' cheese freeze.
That's what made these three free fleas sneeze.
Stop it! Stop it!
That's enough, sir.
I can't say such silly stuff, sir.
That is just a sample of the way the book goes it is hilarious to try and read and my grandchildren love it especially when I get tongue tied, my grandson will even pick this book up to read now he's older and he reads it outloud and giggles loudly when he gets muddled.
I think Dr Seuss is a genius and has captivated childrens minds with his words for years, if you come across this book then have a read. I guarantee in no time at all you will be laughing.
have fun x
