    IT is definitely...

    "Green Eggs & Ham":D

    The class we had last year really enjoyed listening to it.
    The class this year really don't care for it.
    I will have to read it more often, I guess.:unsure:

    The Butter Battle Book is the best piece of fiction in history.

    Oh, The Places You'll Go is also wonderful but it is not on the literary plane that BBB holds all to itself.

    The Lorax is my favorite. It is a great tool to use when teaching about pollution and taking care of the earth. :)

    I can't just narrow it to one. But I guess right now it's How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

    When Dr. Sues died P.D. Eastman took over his writing and I love I'll teach my dog 100 words.

    Upper grades-The Butter Battle Book

    I was just trying to get it done & didn't bother to look up the right spelling. I even had Zeuss & some other way of spelling it.:D
    I corrected the original one. YEA!:cool:

    Without a doubt. Horton Hatches the Egg. Fantastic for teaching faithfulness, responsibility, and doing what one says they will do. Without fail I read it every year to my middle school students.

    "I meant what I said, and I said what I meant." Horton

    I received Oh the Places You'll Go as a high school graduation gift. It's been my favorite ever since.

    I have to say Put Me In The Zoo because it is the first book my oldest son could find on the bookshelf and read aloud to us cover to cover. :wub: But there is not a Dr. Seuss book I don't like and it is really difficult to pick a favorite.

    I have to edit this because I just realized that Robert Lopshire wrote it, but it is in my Dr. Seuss collection. So I now pick Horton Hears a Who. "A person's a person no matter how small." :wub:

    I'm totally agreeing with you about The Butter Battle Book, I think it explains volumes about human nature and how ridiculous war is. Children really get its meaning.

    Do I have to pick just one?

    I'll have to go with "In a People House"

    Come inside, mr. mouse, I'll show you what there is in a people house....

    There's no good reason for it, but I just love that book.

    Now as far as "books with a purpose", I'd have to go with either the Lorax or the butter battle book, or the sneetches...gee, I just can't pick.

    I really like the message of Oh the places you'll go and I would definitely give it as a gift but my personal favorite is Horton hatches the egg. I saw it on reading rainbow as a kid (where they read the story to you and show you the pictures) and I loved it:

    I meant what I said and I said what I meant, an elephant is faithful one hundred percent

    It makes me giggle on the inside

    Just one! That's hard! Dr. Suess-wise, I'd say Green Eggs and Ham. P. D. Eastman, Put Me in the Zoo.

    My fave is If I Ran the Circus. I used to read that all of the time. Next would probably be Green Eggs and Ham. If you ask me tomorrow those two titles would probably be flipped.

    Well, I guess my favorite is Oh, the Places You'll Go! simply because it has such an inspiring message for students. Having said that, I actually have about a dozen favorites, and after reading the posts on here, I have been reminded of a dozen more. I adore Dr. Seuss and own all the Seuss story DVDs.
    Our local high school performed Seussical the Musical this year and I loved every second of it. I would love to get THAT DVD to add to my collection!
