Pros:silly rhymes will make both you and your kid giggle!
Cons:None that I can think of!
The Bottom Line: But that NOOTHGRUSH on my TOOTHBRUSH... Well, some are nice, but he is not.
Another great book by Dr. Seuss.

Wocket in my Pocket is one of the "lesser known" Seuss books that was recommended to me (and given as a gift) by my friend Sweetkat. Its quickly become one of my favorites.
The book utilises simple rhymes that use everyday & ordinary household items and pair them up with a ridiculous rhyme.
For example: zamp in the lamp, nink in the sink, woset in the closet
The rhymes are simple and silly. They are fun to say and fun to hear. They'll make a young child and parent both chuckle.
-Wocket in my Pocketis a quick read. Its only 20 or so pages.
-The book that I have is called a Bright and Early Board book, which means that its "chunky" and made of indestructible cardboard.
-Colorful illustrations on every page of the nonsensical creatures (zamps, ninks, jertains, zelfs etc) Its fun to see what Seuss envisions the different creatures to look like. The nooth-grush and the yottle are my favorites I think. What a vivid imagination Seuss had!
Wocket in my Pocket has several audiences that could enjoy or gain from reading it:
-Young children, probably 2-4 is the "target" who would best enjoy having this book read to them. It also uses household words (curtains, sink, cellar, toothbrush etc.)
-Also, for young children learning to read, or about basic rhymes. I like that the rhyming words are CAPITALIZED.
YEPS on the STEPS.
-Any child that is going through the stage of "there is a monster under my bed" or afraid of the dark may find this book reassuring.
For example --the book ends:
"there's the yottle in the bottle, whom I do not wish to keep. But the zillow on my pillow always helps me fall asleep".
Not Just for Kids!
-I read this book to my infant and I feel that even he enjoys listening to the silly sounds, the rhyming pattern and looking at the illustrations - at the tender age of 3 months. I also really do enjoy reading it. The monster names sound really funny to me too!
