Description


Edited by Dr. Seuss, this classic Beginner Book about finding your place in the world celebrates its 60th Anniversary!

Spot longs to be in the zoo with all the other animals, but the zoo doesn't want him! In this beloved Beginner Book edited by Dr. Seuss, Spot shows a young boy and girl all the exciting things he can do with his spots—from changing their color and juggling them, to moving them onto different objects! Beginning readers will be delighted by Robert Lopshire's lively, rhymed story that not only teaches about colors, but proves there is a special spot for everyone, including Spot. Available for a limited time only with a peel-off 60th Anniversary sticker on the front cover, Put Me in the Zoo is a concept book with a timeless message. (Fans of Spot will also want to check out I Want to Be Somebody New!—the sequel to Put Me in the Zoo.)

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.

"A hilarious story for a first-grade pupil to read. Shows that reading can be fun even if the vocabulary is very limited."--Material Analysis Publications.

New Hope for American Art was authored, designed and published by James M. Alterman, an expert in the field of Pennsylvania Impressionist and Modernist painting. A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye. The book offers valuable tips on how to avoid common mistakes often experienced by new collectors drawn from the author's personal experiences as a collector and fine art dealer.
