    • Warning despite the title, this book has very little to say about wockets If you purchased this book hoping to gain insight into the ecology and habitat of the wocket, you will be disappointed.


    • Nonsense Rhymes18 November 2013 I notice that some people deeply analyse the functionality of the book in how well it would work to help children to read and to understand the English language, and there are others that simply go on about how much they loved this book when they were a kid and have probably not read it since then Then there is me, who will read the book and then make comments about it in the same way that I made comments about Mister Dog The Dog Who Belonged to Himself and The Th [...]

    • I m completely unfamiliar with the original There s A Wocket in My Pocket so I don t know how this differs, sad to say, but as it s quite the silly book and so much fun to read, I wouldn t mind getting the longer version too.It begins Did you ever have the feeling there s a ZAMP in the LAMP Or a NINK in the SINK and so on.For each everyday household item or piece of furniture, Seuss made up a silly rhyme There s the WOSET in the CLOSET and the BOFA on the SOFA, the GEELING on the CEILING and the [...]



    • Okay so technically the six year old read this to me SO PROUD but I supervised and thus am counting it anyway.



    • Ok, I think I m being a little mean to this book I d like to give it four stars, it being a Dr Seuss book and all, but I can t.Cat in the Hat and the Lorax were good Still a ramble of nonsense, but good.This, however Was just too much.So, it s about a kid who lives in this house full of weird monster like things, and the whole story goes like There s a wocket in my pocket and a nookbrush on my toothbrush and a dozet in my closet and a lish in my dish and aThough, I have to say, he s really gifte [...]






    • Apparently making up words is the key to becoming famous Dr Seuss, Red Hot Chili Peppers, scat jazz, Donald Trump Dr Seuss has once again tried to slip some innuendos into his books, making them unsafe for childrens eyes and ears This book was to be followed by a sequel titled Is that a wocket in your pocket or are you just happy to see me


    • Art is beyond adorable all the names of the wacky little critters are so fun to say The Insanity of dr Suess is fun for both kiddies and adults reading to them highly recommended.


    • All I have to say is I want to visit this guy s house It sounds like a fun time to be with all those whatis around Very creative and fun book.


    • The rhyming rhythm and silly and humorous concepts are what makes There s a Wocket in my Pocket such a special picture book The story depicts a young boy who visits different rooms in his house only to find crazy looking creatures, some of which he likes and others that he doesn t, hiding in cupboards, behind curtains, and up the chimney The boy hopes to remain with the friendly creatures and never leave the house.The concept I like most about the book is the creative rhyming and timing of each [...]


    • Personal Response I read this book There s a Wocket in my Pocket by Dr Seuss to my little sister and she really thought it was funny and she told me that it rhymed I liked this book because it was short and gets a point across about what happens Plot There s a Wocket in my Pocket by Dr Seuss was about a boy who had a whole bunch of crazy things in his house A couple of them were a wocket in his pocket, a wasket in his basket, a nureau in his bureau, a woset in his closet, jertian in the curtain, [...]


    • There s a Wocket in my Pocket is truly a brilliant book from the creative mind of Dr Seuss and it is about how a young boy tells the audience about the strange yet fun loving creatures that live in a young boy s house There s a Wocket in my Pocket is definitely one of the greatest books about rhyming ever written Dr Seuss has done a splendid job at both writing and illustrating this book Dr Seuss illustrations are truly great and creative as he illustrates the boy with a red outfit and spiky bro [...]


    • As is typical for Dr Seuss, this book combines simple rhymes with nonsense.There is great value for young readers in reading nonsense words It teaches them to quickly and automatically sound out words they have never seen before And there s not much plot This, too, is an advantage when you re struggling to read you re likely to lose track of what you ve read by the end of the sentence If you have to think back three pages for everything to make sense, well, that s frustrating Some of the words a [...]


    • I know it s supposed to just be a fun read for kids to learn about rhyming But all of these fantastical names for fantastical creatures are not the words I want my children learning when they re first developing their language skills I d rather they learn real rhymes Fox in Socks at least has that going for it


    • Another delightful Dr Seuss offering in which a little boy tells of the strange creatures that inhabit his house.There are the Yeps on the steps, the Nooth Grush on his toothbrush, the Yottle in his bottle, the Jertain in the curtain and many .All good fun and, as usual, well illustrated.


    • This book is uncanny in its ability to be pleasantly funny There s a Wocket in My Pocket should prove an enjoyable read for almost anyone, as it specializes in the type of offbeat rhyming humor that shows Dr Seuss to be quite a writer, at his best I would definitely give one and a half stars to this book.


    • Unlike Dr Seuss s other books, this doesn t send a message to the kid It s just a short ridiculous funny rhyme that makes you smile.I give it to him for the creativity in coming up with some of those creatures, though.However, kids may enjoy this funny cute nonsense I guess I ll have to wait and see


    • I read this at the nursery today as I love Dr Seuss and the children absolutely loved it They couldn t stop laughing at the way i read it aloud This book is certainly better when read out loud and to around children It is so good.


    • I don t care if you believe itthat s the kind of house I live inand I hope we never leave it Oh Dr Suess, you make me smile so.
