Still image from Read Captions Across America: Dr. Seuss Collection

For the DCMP's RCAA events, this special-collection DVD contains the following titles: (1) "The Cat in the Hat," which is about a mischievous singing cat who transforms a dull, rainy afternoon into a magical and just-messy-enough adventure for a brother and sister; (2) "The Hoober-Bloob Highway," which tells the story of Mr. Hoober-Bloob who, assisted by a self-playing instrument, sends babies to Earth; (3) "The Lorax," which is a wild tale about ecology and conservation; (4) "The Sneetches," which explores the often fickle and flexible world of attitudes; (5) "Green Eggs & Ham," which features the insufferable Sam-I-Am and teaches the benefits of trying new things; and (6) "The Zax," a story of the pressure to conform and the inevitability of change.

    We used this for RCAA / Dr. Seuss's birthday. It's so great to have GOOD captions for hard-to-interpret words as are present in Seuss stories. Thank you for making this available!
