Dr. Seuss in French

I highly recommend going to your library and ordering any Dr. Seuss in French. I have gotten several from my local library and just like when I was learning to read in English, Dr. Seuss is great for repetition and fairly easy vocabulary backed up by illustrations. Fun to read aloud too. :-)

Dr Seuss is so great! Among other things, his are about the only books that can be read to a child over and over again, as the child likes, without boring the adult to tears. My wife and I read probably all of them to our children many times, and we still enjoy them with our grandchildren.

Years ago I read a copy of Yertle the Turtle in French, and a couple of others, which I enjoyed very much. « Yaourtu la tortue », if you can find it

FWIW, I found two different translations of "Yertle" in Russian online, recently. Both of them in audio, if I remember correctly.
