I Can Read with My Eyes Shut!

Title: I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!
Author: Dr. Seuss.
Genre: Fiction, picture books, poetry, children's lit.
Country: U.S.
Language: English.
Publication Date: November 12, 1978.
Summary: Dr. Seuss and the Cat show that reading is fun — even when you don’t look at the words! Whether reading in bed or in purple or brown, reading is fun — even upside down. And whether reading about hoses or roses or owls on noses, this is a hysterical way to discover the joy of books.

My rating: 8/10

♥ And when I keep them open
I can read with much more speed.
You have to be a speedy reader
'cause there's so, so much to read!

♥ Young cat! If you keep
your eyes open enough,
oh, the stuff you will learn!
The most wonderful stuff!

♥ There are
so many things
you can learn about.
BUT... you'll miss
the best things
if you keep
your eyes shut.

The more that you read,
the more things you will know.
The more that you learn,
the more places you'll go.
