Celebratory Blog Tour & Review: What Pet Should I Get & Mr Brown Can Moo, Can You? (Dr Seuss)

In the Fall of 2013, an original manuscript with accompanying sketches by Dr. Seuss, aka Ted Geisel, was discovered in the La Jolla, California home of the late beloved children’s author. That complete manuscript was for the picture book, WHAT PET SHOULD I GET?, and will be published by Random House Children’s Books on July 28, 2015. It is the first original new Dr. Seuss book since the publication of the last book of Dr. Seuss’s career, Oh, the Places You’ll Go! in 1990. WHAT PET SHOULD I GET? captures the excitement of a classic childhood moment—choosing a pet—and features the brother and sister characters that Dr. Seuss drew in One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.

What Pet Should I Get?
Hardcover, 48 pages
Expected publication: July 28th 2015 by Random House Children's Books

A never-before-seen picture book by Dr. Seuss!
This never-ever-before-seen picture book by Dr. Seuss about making up one’s mind is the literary equivalent of buried treasure! What happens when a brother and sister visit a pet store to pick a pet? Naturally, they can’t choose just one! The tale captures a classic childhood moment — choosing a pet — and uses it to illuminate a life lesson: that it is hard to make up your mind, but sometimes you just have to do it!
Told in Dr. Seuss’s signature rhyming style, this is a must-have for Seuss fans and book collectors, and a perfect choice for the holidays, birthdays, and happy occasions of all kinds.
An Editor’s Note at the end discusses Dr. Seuss’s creative process, his interest in animals, and Seussian creatures throughout his work.

"Oh, the wonderful things 
Mr Brown can do! 
He can go like a cow.
He can go Moo Moo.
Mr Brown can do it.
How about you?"

Dr Seuss has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. As a child my Mom read me Dr Seuss all the time and then when I became a Mom I continued reading Dr Seuss to my child. 

Mr Brown Can Moo, Can You? Is one of my favorites! It is beautifully illustrated with bright colors that engage a child's attention and keeps them focused on each page. I love that there are so many different animal sounds that children can mimic and learn to associate the sounds with the animals. 

When I heard there would be a blog tour for a new unpublished book by Dr Seuss....I was completely honored to be asked to join the tour. Dr Seuss's writing is rhythmic and catchy and his characters are funny and bright and inspiring to children. I hope everyone checks out this new book and helps spread the news about Dr Seuss and his phenomenal writing!!!!

Follow The Tour!!
