Mr Brown Can Moo! Can You?
Dr Seuss, 1970 (Bright and Early Books/Random House)
Oh, the wonderful things
Mr Brown can do!
He can go like a cow.
He can go MOO MOO
Mr Brown can do it.
How about you?
I have always loved the Beginner Books, including but not only those by Dr Seuss. When I had kids and there was a subscription special at Scholastic I finally had two excuses to buy up heaps of them.
I started reading them to the kids when they were about two, and they held their attention more than many other books did - I believe due to a combination of the winning cadences, humour, unique illustrations, and mother's obvious enthusiasm while reading them.
The kids' favourites were Wacky Wednesday, The Cat In the Hat, The Eye Book, In A People House - and this one.
