Dr. Seuss Read Alouds

While we all know there is just no substitute for reading aloud with your child, there are times when it would be nice to have someone else to do it for you.  Think those days when you have a long list of things to do, those days when your voice is cracking from the flu, or those days when you are driving on a long trip.  Instead of having your child watch a video, you might want to share some of these great Dr. Seuss Read Alouds.  Not only will they entertain your child, but it will increase their reading skills as well!

 Some other videos include:

Fox in Socks

The Lorax

Hop On Pop
