Picture Book Review: Hop on Pop by Dr. Seuss

Hop on Pop by Dr. Seuss (The Simplest Seuss for Youngest Use) Random House, New York, 1963.
This book is a nightmare for every father.  You don't know how many times I have ben hopped upon.  I blame it all on Seuss.  "Hop Pop We like to hop.  We like to hop on top of Pop.  Stop  You must not hop on Pop."  Those few words have lead to many a smashed belly.  Hopping on Grand Pop is also a favorite activity of children.  This is one of the Seuss books for beginning readers.  It uses very few words, but has many rhyming words.  Even with so few words he draws they reader into the stories.  He tells of Mr. Brown, the thing that can sing, and Pat who sat on a hat.
