3. Hop on Pop
In If I Ran the Zoo, a boy decides what the zoo would be life if he was the zookeeper. Lions and tigers and monkeys would not be in his zoo. No! He would have animals no one had ever before seen. This has always been a fun book to read either before or after a zoo trip or when children are learning to appreciate and recognize various animals.
7. The Lorax
One of Dr. Seuss' more serious "message books," The Lorax shares an important tale about the need for our being better stewards of the environment. In this story, the Lorax warns the Once-ler about the folly of cutting down all the Truffula trees in the forest for profit. While there is a happy ending, the message is clear about our responsibility to the environment. A good, thought provoking book for dads and kids to read together.
Horton is an unusual elephant. He can see and hear tiny creatures that no one else can see and hear. Horton's gentle nature and his connection to the Who's end of saving their world. This book is fun enough to read, but it packs an important message to our children about respect, integrity, kindness and personal responsibility.

Engaging characters, extraordinary illustrations and an important message about the spirit of Christmas are all found in abundance in this memorable book.
