“This Fox is a tricky fox. He’ll try to get your tongue in trouble.” Dr. Seuss gives fair warning to anyone brave enough to read along with the Fox in Socks, who likes to play tongue-twisting games with his friend Mr. Knox. “Here’s an easy game to play. Here’s an easy thing to say…. New socks. Two socks. Whose socks? Sue’s socks.” But Mr. Fox Socks isn’t about to let Knox off so easy. Soon Goo-Goose is choosing to chew chewy gluey blue goo, while tweetle beetles battle with paddles in a puddle (in case you were wondering, that’s called a “tweetle beetle puddle paddle battle”). Mr. Knox gets exasperated: “I can’t blab such blibber blubber! My tongue isn’t made of rubber.” But he catches on to the game before it’s all through.

    This book is a simple, yet cute child’s book and Dr Seuss is able to put words together that rhyme and at the same time teach children new and exciting words. My Pa used to read me this book when I was little and I used to love it! I used to laugh at all the funny rhymes and think how clever Dr Seuss was to even be able to think of many words he could. This book holds significant memories for me when I was growing up and to this day, I still own a copy of the famous book. I would recommend this book for children under the age of 10 because it is a book for younger children and one I think many children for years to come will enjoy reading as much as I did when I was younger.

  3. i think that it is a really good children’s book. Dr. Suess is a great writer and his books are so funny, especially the fox in socks. The books of his are very bright and colourful type of books and the pictures are very clear to understand, the writing is sometimes understandable. This story is very easy for kids to read and understand about what’s the book about. I would say the book is good for kids between 4 up to 8, but older people might still enjoy it.

    This book is a really fun and funny tongue twister. It has got to be the best children book, it helped me to read a bit better because of all of the tongue twisters. It has all this weird things in it like the animals and it is good for your imagination. The author has great talent to come up with all these different storys and poems. I rate this book a 10/10.

    I still think now that doctor Suess is one of the best children authors around, and he definitely showed this in fox in sox the illustrations are brilliant especially for kids who are learning to read and by making the words rhyming really makes it fun to read. I had most of hid books as a child but I have passed them down to my nephew who now adores them and loves looking at the pictures. 9/10 great

  12. Dr. Suess book Fox in Sox is such a great children’s book! I have pretty much all his children’s books and he is defiantly my favourite poet of all times! Fox in Sox is a great book and if many people like this book they will defiantly enjoy all of his other books he has written for everyone in the world. Dr. Suess is a great author and I hope that every generation has at least read one book of his.:)

    Dr. Suess is an amazing author. He has an amazing imagination and uses it to write great books for children and adults. These books not only have great context but funny pictures. Dr. Suess has written many books such as green eggs and ham, and hop in pop, but I would have to say that fox in sox is one of the best.

  15. I recommend the book Fox in Socks, by Dr. Seuss. This book is such a funny book and the illustrations add to fun of reading it. It’s full of tongue twisters that really make you think when you are reading it. I learnt that it’s best to start slowly if you are reading the book out loud. It’s a great book to read out loud to little kids because they will enjoy it. The tongue twisters are all different but are joined together with a little “game” from the fox. I rate this book 5/5 because it is such a fun read and I think anyone will enjoy it!
