The Eye Book

by Dr. Seuss
illustrated by Joe Mathieu

I never saw a Dr. Seuss book as a board book before, and it works perfectly in this format. I'm also mostly familiar with Dr. Seuss books illustrated by the man himself, which are most of the ones I grew up with in my mother's collection (and have re-gathered to put on my own kids' shelves). So this one was a bit different for me. It has cute illustrations that show different ways a boy and his companion (in this case a bunny) use their eyes to see stuff. The rabbit and boy both have large, exaggerated eyes, but not so much to be goofy. My daughter really likes this book.

Rating: 3/5 ........ 22 pages, 1968
