After taking those four rhyming items through several permutations, more items are added (chicks, bricks, blocks, clocks), and so on. Works based on his original stories have won three Oscars, three Emmys, three Grammys, and a Peabody.

Kirkus Reviews considered it an "amusing exercise for beginning readers", but noted that the tongue-twisters made little sense when removed from the context of their illustrations. He soon turned his many talents to writing children’s books, which included the creation of the one and only ‘The Cat in the Hat’, published in 1957.

In 1965, the book was adapted as a record, narrated by Marvin Miller with music by Marty Gold and his orchestra. Seuss classic about the irrepressible Fox in Socks gets a brand new look – bringing his hilarious tongue-twisters and rollicking rhymes to a new generation of readers.

Seuss books aren't that long, but Fox in Socks is about the right length for reading to a pre-schooler in my opinion, as it keeps their attention with the wonderful drawings and rhymes.
