Children learn to read by writing. Stop trying to teach her to read and instead teach her to write.

Just to take an example The Lorax depicts a lot of publicly owned land, unwittingly incorporating the tragedy of the commons, to which it misses the mark and ultimately blames what is tacitly implied as a Bourgeois Sycophant of Capital; igniting a class struggle narrative between him and a proletarian Lorax, when the real issue came down to homesteading ...

First, I read Dr. Seuss as a kid. We have them now for our kids. But I generally try to avoid him in favor of other authors. My Mom didn't like Dr. Seuss and I'm not a big fan either. Here's why. First, his books aren't representative of the real world - nor do they even closely approximate it. The very young children who his books are aimed at really ...

This may seem like a detour but, firstly, let me start by saying that we taught our son to read using Dr. Seuss' books. We first learned the alphabet. Then we sat down for about half an hour each day with "The Cat in the Hat", incidentally, and started spelling out each letter of each word. I would then explain how each letter was pronounced using the ...

There should be some clarification. Do these people hate the books that were written by Dr. Seuss, or books that were written by Dr. Seuss. If they dislike the books as an extension of their dislike of Dr. Seuss, and/or some of the political views in the books, then the issue may be somewhat intractable. There is also the general political view taken in ...

What's wrong with Dr Seuss he asked? To find an answer, I've been tasked. His books on cats are widely read, In libraries, schools, or just in bed. Is it because he writes such blubber that turns a child's tongue into rubber? Nonsense words and silly rhymes Confusing children at bedtimes. Or maybe it's the politics Of chicks on blocks and clocks on bricks? ...

As previously cited, a lot of people around the world enjoy the works of Dr. Seuss, including you. But then there are those two outliers who have a different opinion. Interestingly, when you asked, "What's wrong with Dr. Seuss?" you centered yourself with the outliers. You abandoned your own opinion of his work in favor of theirs. The answer is: Nothing ...

It seems to me that neither Seuss hater offered any reason why and you might just ask them to be specific, especially the therapist. Seuss was my favorite, and I recall having the full set as a toddler. By the second grade I was at a measured 8th grade reading level. Not implying cause and effect, of course, I just would say that these books didn't ruin me. ...

A few of his later books showed more of his liberal leanings and that irked conservatives. I'm not saying it was bad, just that it shown through more in the end. "The Butter Battle Book" is probably the best known - and with an ambiguous 'ending'. BTW - I was a well behaved kid as is my child and we both grew up on Dr. S. At that age, the words are more ...

I'm not sure why the grandmothers would find them to be distasteful--You would probably be better off asking them directly for that. I do, however, discourage my own child's grandmothers from reading Dr. Seuss to my child. The reason has nothing to do with speech development or mental acuity, but because I find a number of the Doctor's characters to be poor ...

Without any further input from your mother or mother-in-law, it's most likely that this is a case of opinion, rather than fact. There are certaily a few things to dislike about Doctor Seuss books - they are very silly, surreal, and disconformist. If your two critics are very by-the-book rule-sticklers, then it may simply be a matter of opposing ...

Personally, I always saw them as actually helping the development of speech and language, in the same way practicing tongue twisters helps you improve. I have never heard of them being disliked or hated, and in fact a google search for any papers calling their usefulness into question returns nothing! That's just my opinion though. Wikipedia has this ...
