There’s a Wocket in my Pocket 
By Dr. Seuss

Review by: Laura Wood

     This board book of ridiculous rhymes is an exciting way to get rhythms going with your youngster.  A tongue twister at times for parents, it asks unbelievably silly questions and allows children to use their imaginations.  Older children will begin to recognize the pattern that is being used.
     Have you ever heard of a zamp?  A nink?  How about bofa? These words were created by replacing the first letter of each the following words:  Lamp, Sink and Sofa.  This is the idea of the book, by changing the first letter and sometimes the first two letters of everyday regular words, you can make up new words that sound alike.  
      The young boy in the story looks around his house and finds different new friends.  He knows that when he hears a tock, there is a zlock behind his clock.  Start slowly and build up to a steady rhythm by the time you meet the seven friends in the cellar!  (Hint: their names all are derived from the word cellar.)
      By the way, did you ever have a zillow on your pillow that helped you fall asleep?  I recommend this book for children age 18 months and up.
