Fox In Sock by Dr. Seuss
This classic Dr. Seuss Beginner Book features silly tongue-twisters that will have readers of all ages giggling with glee. With his unmistakable use of rhyme, Dr. Seuss creates a hysterical and energetic way for beginning readers to dive into the joy of reading.

Why It Is Still On My Mind
I don’t always just have YA books on the brain. I love me some children’s books as well and I have a young niece that gives me an excuse to keep reading them. And come on who doesn’t like Dr. Seuss? Fox in Sock has to be one of my favorites. My niece used to love this one too and although I sucked the first time I read it aloud I got pretty good at it. She is a little older and I started reading Junie B. Jones with her and her mom is reading Harry Potter to her (she is obsessed with the movies. When she was 3 or so she would run around with a colored pencil repeating expelliarmus, well as best she could anyways. It was adorable.) so we don’t read too much Dr. Seuss anymore but Fox in Sock will always be a favorite. Don’t tire of reading it and don’t think I ever will.
