Beyond Dr. Seuss - Beginning Readers

This past week I put together a book list of beginning readers.  Some are beloved titles from my own childhood, such as Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb.  Others are newer books that have won a Geisel Award or Honor.  All are fantastic books for new readers. With the exception of two titles, none are by Dr. Seuss.  Those two titles were published under another of Theodor Geisel's pen names: Theo LeSieg.
