Hop on Pop

Hop On Popby Dr. Seuss
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Category: Paperback

Age: 1-6+ years

Synopsis: In this Dr. Seuss Beginner Book, we meet a host of characters engaging in all sorts of silliness: Pat sits on a cat, Red is in bed, Pup is up, and two little bears (?!?) hop on Pop, much to their father’s displeasure.

Bilingual benefit: As with other Dr. Seuss Beginner Books, this classic book introduces English sentence construction through simple, smart rhymes and absurdist illustrations (fish in a tree!). “Hop on Pop” functions as a toddler version of a comic book in our home: there are certain vignettes (scenes) that our lil guy requests over and over again and make him bust out laughing. He can also “read” the entire book to us.

Availability in Israel: I found the paperback edition of “Hop on Pop” in Tzomet Sfarim in Tel Aviv. As both Tzomet Sfarim and Steimatzky carry Dr. Seuss books, you can probably ask them to order the book for you if you are unable to find it in one of their brick and mortar stores. In addition, the book is available for order on Amazon USA.

Previewing the book: This book can be previewed on Amazon USA. (last checked 7/10/2014).

Lil guy: A regular read.

Mama: I would buy this again and for a friend. The paperback edition is especially useful for airplane and card rides.
