List Rules All Dr. Seuss books ranked best to worst

What are the best Dr. Seuss books? Every book written by the brilliant Theodor Seuss Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss) is a wonderful book. Seuss penned, and illustrated, many of the greatest children's books of all time. They are excellent books to read to your kids, too. Everyone, it seems, has at least one favorite. What is yours? Vote for the Dr. Seuss books you like the most, and feel free to re-rank this list in any order you choose.

At what age do kids begin reading Dr. Seuss books? Many parents start reading Seuss books to their children before the kiddos even know how to read. The books are whimsical, lyrical and a truly wonderful way to introduce kids to the magic of reading, after all. Dr. Seuss's nursery collection books are some of the best board books for babies and toddlers.

As kids learn to read, they'll likely love tackling some "grown up" hardcover Dr. Seuss books. They might already be familiar with the stories, and they'll love the familiarity. Dr. Seuss's greatest books, including The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, and certainly Horton Hears a Who! are all worth revisiting, time and time again. When is the best time for a child to read Dr. Seuss? Any time. Green Eggs and Ham, for example, is without question an excellent book for first graders, but some younger children might be ready to read it much earlier.

It's really hard to pick favorites when it comes to Dr. Seuss books, but let's give it a try: Vote for the best, vote down any books you don't like and yes, add any that might be missing, too.
