Free Online Text for Dr. Seuss' Bartholomew and the Oobleck

Hello,

Does anyone know of free online sites for children's books? Specifically, Dr. Seuss books. Audio would be okay as well.

Thankyou,
m.p.

Seuss's widow is still very much alive and very protective of her husband's works; it would surprise me greatly to find free texts on a Web site legally.

The website's that I listed have books read aloud...I'm not sure if they have to books themselves...I don't think that they do. The sites are legal...as far as i can tell.

If you're looking for the actual content/text of Bartholomew and the Oobleck, I think you may be disappointed. As TeacherGroupie has mentioned, his widow (and estate) are very active regarding unauthorized dissemination. As for the legality of audio recordings, I'm not going to go there. I honestly don't know enough to say one way or the other if they're okay.

On the other hand, if you're looking for lesson plans and ideas, try doing a Yahoo! search for "oobleck". I know there's a Wikipedia entry (did you know Oobleck is a great example of a non-Newtonian fluid?), and there's a lot of other stuff as well if you're willing to spend the time looking for it.

But, if you're looking for the actual physical book, try checking half.com, eBay, powells.com and Amazon if you haven't yet. Many times, just by checking those four sites, you can find books for pennies (before shipping, of course)!

Thanks so much for all of the input. I understand the copyright issues, however, I was looking for any kind of site that provided a membership or something in order to view the text online. You see silly me has to read the book aloud tomorrow, and do a science experiment. I forgot the book at school and now at home realized it wasn't in my bag. I wanted to time myself reading it in order to decide how much time to allot for the other activitiy. I recall the book can be somewhat long. I had read somewhere about ebooks where you could read books online, but that were protected from download to printer or saving to another device.
