Rhyming Words with "Hop on Pop"
Hop on Pop - Dr. Seuss

This is a very basic book for beginning readers. This book draws young readers in because of its easy, rhyming language. "We hope on Pop. Pop said stop." This sentence is used in the book and can easily be distinguished by beginners because the word combinations are identical and rhyme. These patterns are predictable and is great for the youngest of readers. My daughter, who is almost three, loves this story because these are all words she can say and relate too. These words include mouse, house, all, tall, small, fall, wall, hat, sat, Pat, and many more. This book is leveled a BR on the Lexile Leveling system.

Hop On Pop
Hop on Pop - Dr. Seuss

Dr. Suess is great for any elementary school classroom. His books are usually thought provoking, while also teaching fundamental lessons on language- as in this case rhyming! Rhyming is an important lesson for early childhood students to learn. Word families, word walls, and sometimes sight words have rhyming as a big foundation to these words- which is why this book is great to read to these students. I would say this book's intended audience is K-1st grade. An activity I would do with these students is split them into groups, give each group a core word, and have them come up with as many rhyming words as they can in a minute. A few rounds would be played and they will have been exposed to so many different words in a short amount of time, while also brainstorming! I feel like that would be a great rhyming activity.

Dr. Seuss advocates violence against fathers!

The Toronto Public Library recently announced that one of the patron complaints they received over the past year was to remove Hop on Pop by Dr. Seuss. The reason? It "encourages children to use violence against their fathers."


The complaint goes on to say that the library should apologize to Toronto fathers and even pay for any damages resulting from children reading the book. Whoever made the complaint must not have actually read the book which, at the end, has a disclaimer from Dr. Seuss to not really jump on pop in real life. 


This was just one of several books the library was asked to remove over the past year. Other "offensive" selections included: 


Lizzie's Lion by Dennis Lee, about a girl's pet lion that saves her by eating a would-be robber. This was described as "violent and disturbing." 


Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot, Bill O'Reilly, about the JFK assassination. The complaint was that the book concludes there was only one shooter, not a group. 


A dvd copy of That's My Boy, starring Adam Sandler, that was described as "sick and illegal behaviour." 


The library just released on its website the full list of "objectionable" materials along with explanations of how they were reviewed and why they were kept on the shelves.
