McElligot’s Pool – Dr. Seuss, Random House, 1974.
Format: Hardback picture book
What did you like about the book? Is there a “best” Dr. Seuss book? Probably not. We all have our favorites. McElligot’s Pool is entrancing from the magical creatures to the perfect word rhymes. It causes one’s imagination to soar. A great book for children who might be discouraged about absolutely anything.
What didn’t you like about the book? Absolutely nothing!
To whom would you recommend this book? This book won a Caldecott Honor award. Read another Dr. Seuss or look for some Caldecott winners.
Who should buy this book? Lower elementary schools and public libraries.
Where would you shelve it and why? Picture books
Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? Yes.
