A Dr. Seuss books scavenger hunt makes reading and learning to read more of a game. If you’d made me choose my favorite, Dr. Seuss books or a scavenger hunt, I’m not sure which I would chose. This entertaining Dr. Seuss activity combines two of my favorite childhood activities – Dr. Seuss and a game.

I vividly remember the excitement when I was 4 years old of having new Dr. Seuss books arrive at our home every month or so as part of a book club my mom signed us up for. I adored each and every one of those books. I know that they contributed to my lifelong love of reading.

I also vividly remember reading both Dr. Seuss board books and hard cover books to my children. I fondly remember my youngest daughter reading The Lorax to my son each night for weeks. I also know that our family’s love of Dr. Seuss books figured significantly in developing the love of reading that has continued into adulthood in all three of my children.

What age are Dr. Seuss books for?

Dr. Seuss books are for children ages 1 – 12, depending on your purpose for reading and which books you select.

Young children enjoy the wacky rhyming of Dr. Seuss books and love the child-friendly characters. Reading the simpler Dr. Seuss books to young children help them learn to recognize rhyming patterns and even sight words. Both are critical pre and early reading skills.

Children, aged 6 – 9, who are reading independently will enjoy the security of reading Dr. Seuss books with the familiar rhythm and silly rhymes.

Older children will enjoy the zany characters and rhymes of the longer Dr. Seuss books.
