I was thrilled to buy my granddaughter her first Dr. Seuss books. She’s three, and I was looking forward to reading them to her now, and watching her learn the words, so she could ‘pretend’ she was reading them along with me, as I did as a child, and ultimately, letting her read them to me. But, what a major disappointment. The thin, cheap paper ruins the entire experience. When you can see through the page to the drawing on the reverse, the easily-distracted three year old is just. ..distracted. I feel like these are overpriced for the quality. The stories, the illustrations, are all the same beloved ones from my childhood, but the cutting of corners on paper and binding quality are upsetting. There’s no way this set will last through one grandchild, much less two. For shame. I feel like Dr. Seuss himself would be ashamed to have his name on these. I’ve just opened a couple of them at random and taken pics to show you the bleed-through of the images and words on the reverse side of the page. It didn’t matter which books I chose, all are this way. And I took these pics under lamplight. The effect is ever so much worse in daylight. Check it out!

Dr. Seuss’s Beginner Book Collection (Cat in the Hat, One Fish Two Fish, Green Eggs and Ham, Hop on Pop, Fox in Socks) Hardcover – Box set, September 22, 2009 by Seuss (Author) Review
All of the pages are transparent! How do you overlook or are not bothered by that!? Kind of hard to enjoy the story when the illustrations on the back of the page are showing through. I wish i could return this for a better quality product. -Read Reviews-
I got this set for my daughter. I didn’t open it for a few months, as she is a baby, and when I did open it, the Green Eggs & Ham book was totally messed up. The pages are upside down and the words are cut off. It’s unreadable. Very disappointing.
