I Can Read With My Eyes Shut! - Dr. Seuss

I Can Read with My Eyes Shut!, by Dr. Seuss, is a book about reading.  The Cat in the Hat takes Young Cat out and shows him all of the fun things he can read about and learn when he reads a book.  The rhymes are catchy and in the traditional Dr. Seuss style.  Illustrations in this book are fantastic and will catch most children's attention easily.  As with most Dr. Seuss books, there are nonsense words, objects, and places galore.


I Can Read with My Eyes Shut! is a great book to use with kindergarten and first grade students. Even reluctant readers will be drawn in by the rhymes and illustrations.  It's loaded with sight words and advanced kindergarteners and average first graders should be able to read it with minimal assistance. This book would be a good choice to read as part of a writing lesson, as almost every page can serve as a writing prompt.
