The rhythmic and melodic elements of Theodor Geisel’s children’s literature provide many opportunities for knowledge of language, vocabulary acquisition and use, and creative expression and communication in music. The two books chosen in this lesson, Dr. Seuss’s ABC and P.D. Eastman’s Go, Dog. Go!, are two of many which can provide successful learning experiences. With this lesson, words are lifted off the page and into the children’s world of enduring understanding, giving them the tools needed for the most complex creativity.
