Dr. Seuss and the Cat show that reading is fun—even when you don’t look at the words!—in this classic Beginner Book. “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” Whether reading in bed or in purple or brown, reading is fun—even upside down. And whether reading about hoses or roses or owls on noses, I Can Read with My Eyes Shut is a hysterical way to discover the joy of books.

Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.

I received this book for free from The Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

The BGs Review is a feature on the blog where my daughters and I review children’s books. This review includes my thoughts on the book, as suitable for children, as well as opinions and thoughts from my two oldest “Baby Girls” (ages 10 and 4) aka the BGs.

One Line: Such a fun book about the joys of reading.

This may be one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books. It was such a fun read and I loved reading it to my kids. I’ve always loved that Dr. Seuss books rhyme and they always have a bit of silliness to it that appeals to kids. Another point in Dr. Seuss’ favor is that the books teach a lesson. The lesson here is that it’s fun to read and you know that hit home for me. Everything about a Seuss book is excellent. The illustrations are whimsical, the story is silly, yet concise. And, I don’t know about you, but I always love a book that rhymes.

Thoughts from BG1: This book was hilarious. I love that it rhymes and I loved all the silly animals. My favorite part has crocodiles wearing pants, that cracked me up. I could definitely see myself reading this again.

Thoughts from BG2: I want to read it again and again!

And I believe BG3 enjoyed the book as well, albeit, in a different kind of way:
