Hop on Pop by Dr.Seuss is a wonderful children's book for both beginning readers and young children. We purchased this book when my oldest son was beginning to read. He caught onto it very quickly because of all of the rhyming words. It works well with a phonetics approach to reading by changing only the initial consonant sound in the word groups on each page - such as Ed, Ned, Ted, bed, red. He was reading it on his own before we knew it! We have recently pulled this book out to read with our 3-year old son. It has become the requested bedtime story every night for the past several weeks. He loves the silliness of the rhymes and the pictures. He can also now read most of this book on his own, but more from memorization from having it read to him so many times! It is wonderful as a parent to watch your older sibling reading to the younger and seeing how much they are both enjoying the experience! I highly recommend this book to families with young children.
