ABOUT THIS BOOK: In this hilarious book, the irrepressible Fox in Socks teaches a baffled Mr. Knox some of the slickest, quickest tongue-twisters in town.
MY THOUGHTS: Fox in Socks is currently my grandson’s favourite book. It really is the only book he currently wants to read, or to be read to him. It has even ousted his Paw Patrol book in the favourites stakes!
And he is word perfect on it….when my tongue got twisted the other day, he said ‘Nana, that’s not right. Read it again!’
Dr Seuss brings out the child in all of us. I love reading, and rereading, his books. I love the illustrations. I love the sillyness.
5 stupendous stars ❤😂🤣🤪💖
