When Sam, the owl, teaches Gus, the firefly, to write words in the sky, cars crash, movies are free, and hot dogs are cold.

Review:

"[P]rovides interest, suspense and word repetition." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Sam the Owl and Gus the Firefly literally light up the sky in this classic Beginner Book edited by Dr. Seuss. In Sam and the Firefly, P. D. Eastman (author of Are You My Mother? and Go, Dog. Go!) introduces us to the dynamic duo of Sam and Gus, who soar through the air writing words in the night sky. But when Gus’s words end up causing confusion and chaos for the people on the ground, it’s up to Sam to help Gus “write” his wrongs.

Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.

"...provides interest, suspense and word repetition. Illustrations excellent. Recommended."--(starred) School Library Journal.

Synopsis:

Illus. in color. The story of an incredible twosome that "provides interest, suspense and word repetition. Illustrations excellent. Recommended."--(starred) School Library Journal.

This book was responsible for the moment when "the light came on" in my son's young mind. It gave him an understanding of the concept and purpose of words, and of reading and writing. Thank-you, Dr Seuss!
