Dr. Seuss Book List

The books in the Dr. Seuss Book List are categorized according to Dr. Seuss’s publishing company, Random House’s divisions.

BEGINNER BOOKS in the Dr. Seuss Book List
(Ages 4-8)

Beginner Books were originally created by Dr. Seuss in order to encourage children to read all by themselves.

All Beginner Books have a picture of one of Dr. Seuss’s most famous character creations, the Cat in the Hat, on their cover.
